BH North Public School has proven that it pays to be pink.
Students and staff this week banished their blue and white uniforms and donned pink in support of the McGrath Foundation’s research into breast cancer.
“The day was a huge success and the school community has currently raised $1765 which has blown away the original hopes of organisers,” school teacher Matthew Jardine said.
He said in the weeks leading up to the event students, staff and parents bought pink wristbands, shoelaces, hats and donated money to give support.
There was so much interest from the kids that an SOS was sent to the McGrath Foundation for more wristbands and shoelaces.
“When the pink day finally arrived, the school was transformed with colour. Students had dressed in pink and along with pink hair they certainly showed their support,” Mr Jardine said.
“Games of cricket were held at recess and lunch using special pink equipment sent out by the McGrath Foundation which made for a popular activity.”
