Footy Colours raises awareness for Fight Cancer Foundation

Engadine High School

On Friday, 15th September the school came together to raise awareness and much needed funds for the Fight Cancer Foundation. Footy Colours Day directly sponsor Fight Cancer Foundation’s education support which works with major paediatric hospitals to keep kids with cancer engaged with their education.

Learners with cancer who are absent from school for long periods often become isolated from their school and friends. Many drop class levels when they return to school and find it difficult to engage with their education. Fight Cancer Foundation’s Education Support Program enables young learners to maintain their education and connection with their school and school friends.

The school community raised over $1600. It was fabulous to see so many students and staff wearing their team colours creating a vibrant and inclusive atmosphere across the school.  We would like to thank Bakers Delight Engadine for their generous donation of hot dog rolls and our P & C for the donation of drinks. The PDHPE faculty coordinated a much anticipated round robin of soccer which took place at lunch time.  A fun day was had by all. Well done EHS!
