Girls Raise Over $4000 at Purple Bra Day
Purple Bra Day is an annual tradition at Santa Maria College. The whole school comes completely decked out in fabulous purple outfits for a gold coin donation. The funds raised go to Breast Cancer Care WA, joining the fight to beat breast cancer.
Purple Bra Day is organised by the Student Leadership Council (SLC) and this year included an array of stalls and activities that allowed students and staff to enjoy the day whilst raising money for this great cause!
The day started with the SLC decorating student’s faces with purple stars, symbolic of their support for the cause of the day, surrounded by bra buntings, purple-dressed mannequins and endless purple decorations.
At recess, we held our traditional Purple Bra Day Ball Dress Parade. This gives the Year 12s another opportunity to dust off their ball dresses and strut their stuff alongside our wonderful male teachers who accompanied them down the runway. There were also various stalls with a selection of delicious treats, including an ice cream bar, lolly bags and chocolates, and some eco-friendly scrunchies being sold.
Celebrations continued at lunch with the much-loved sausage sizzle and an intense staff vs student game of ‘Brasketball’. Unfortunately, the students were outdone despite the overwhelming support of the crowd at the game. The Brasketball match was made even more entertaining with an amazing performance from the Year 12 Music class.
It was another amazing Purple Bra Day to add to the memory books! The SLC was super pleased with the contributions from the community, and we raised $4,016.
Well done, girls, and thank you for your support of this very important cause.
