Project Care Day - World Greatest Shave
The first of our Christian College Bellarine Project Care days will be on Thursday, March 16.
We will be raising money for the Leukaemia Foundations World Greatest Shave. It will be a day filled with colourful fun as we raise money to help those affected by Leukaemia.
All students are invited to come to school in bright coloured clothes for the day and bring along a gold coin donation. There will be a sausage sizzle at lunch time, as well as coloured hair spray booths where everyone can join in the fun of the colourful day. The colour hairspray will cost $2 per child. If you don’t want your child to be involved, please make sure you let their homeroom teacher know.
Leukaemia, lymphoma and myeloma are types of blood cancer. They can develop in anyone, of any age, at any time. More than 60,000 Australians are living with blood cancer or related disorders, and every day another 35 people will be diagnosed. Blood cancer is the third most common cause of cancer death in Australia, claiming more lives than breast cancer or melanoma.
Although research is improving survival, sadly an Australian loses their life to blood cancer every two hours.
The Leukaemia Foundation is the only national charity dedicated to helping more Australians survive their blood cancer and live a better quality of life. We will help fund vital research that will help more people survive blood cancers like lymphoma, leukaemia and myeloma, while improving their quality of life.
This is a wonderful cause to be able to support as a school community. It’s really important that as a student body we take ownership of our Project Care days. Please encourage your children to do some jobs around the house to raise their own money to bring on the day so that they are able to feel a sense of accountability towards the day.
Thank you for your support of our Project Care team.
