Perth students helped kick start a global charity drive this week by playing video games. Presbyterian Ladies’ College was the first Australian school to allow students to download and play a free video game, the Adventures of Ai, on Thursday, to take part in the World Charity Cup global video game competition.

The competition will raise money for charities around the world including the Children’s Leukaemia & Cancer Research Foundation and Sony Foundation in Australia.

The Adventures of Ai is an e-book for pre-teens by New York Times best-selling author Craig Bouchard with an accompanying video game. Children’s high scores will be recorded on the story’s website to add to their country’s total.


PLC Students Game for Global Competition in Support of Local Charity


A big thank you to Presbyterian Ladies’ College, who were the the first school in Australia to launch the World Charity Cup global video game competition in support of local charities.

At PLC Middle School Assembly on Tuesday 25 November, students were introduced to the free video game, The Adventures of Ai, and allowed to download it to take part in the World Charity Cup. They were then allowed to use personal mobile devices at School during lunchtime on Thursday 27 November and to play the game to kickstart the campaign and win some great prizes!

The Adventures of Ai is an e-­book written by international entrepreneur and New York Times best-­selling author Craig Bouchard. The story was written for his 4 daughters and is part non-fiction and part fiction fantasy designed to prepare pre-­teens for the pressures they will encounter as they grow up. Incorporating art, history, poetry, music and mathematics, it encourages children to unlock their potential.
