Sir Edmund at Macleans College
Sir Edmund attended Hillary House assembly where he was given a cheque for $5000 to help people in Nepal as part of the Himalayan Trust.
Year 9 student Heidi Tan handed the cheque to Sir Edmund on behalf of the house. The house was named after Sir Edmund.
The money came from fund raising by Hillary House members and has become an annual event.
Sir Edmund thanked Hillary house for their efforts on behalf of the Sherpa people of Nepal saying the money would help in health and education.
Sir Edmund said the people of Nepal would be grateful for the financial gift.
