Santa Maria College Turns Purple To Raise Awareness of Breast Cancer
The College turned purple today to raise awareness of breast cancer, with our annual Purple Bra Day. There was a sea of purple, with students allowed to wear purple for a gold coin donation. Purple bras were worn on the outside, to show support and help raise funds for Breast Cancer Care WA.
The girls enjoyed a range of activities including face painting. the traditional Year 12 Ball Dress Parade, ‘bra bags’ the Years 5 & 6 girls had made, a staff versus students ‘brasketball’ game, a cake stall and sausage sizzle.
This year, the Student Leadership Council decided to also support ‘The Uplift Project’. This is an organisation that collects bras and sends them off to women in third world countries. The girls encouraged students and staff to donate bras which were displayed around the school and would later be donated to The Uplift Project.
The day was a huge success with over $3000 raised, an amazing effort!
