Colour for Cancer Day

The annual Colour for Cancer day was held last Thursday with great success. Students donated a gold coin for the right to take part and dressed in some of the most outrageously colourful items we have ever seen.

Prizes for the most colourfully dressed were awarded to students from each year level but all students should be congratulated for taking part so enthusiastically and raising money for such as excellent cause. A fabulous total of $754.50 was raised.

A special thank you goes out to the hard working group of Year 6s and Miss Anderson for coordinating the day. You should be very proud of the awesome achievement!
