Valentine’s Day is synonymous with romance but at All Saints Senior the students extend the gesture to raise awareness and funds for a worthy cause. The College leaders organise our annual fundraiser where students can pre-purchase roses and chocolate hearts that are sent to to their recipients during homeroom on Valentine’s Day. Students send them to their friends, their teachers or significant others to put a smile on their face for the day.
As February is Ovarian Cancer Awareness month the students donate the proceeds of the fundraiser to Ovarian Cancer Australia to help assist women in our community who are struggling with treatment and access to services as they fight this very difficult disease.
We cannot thank enough Fairytale Flowers at Casula who provide our roses to us each year as a contribution to such a great cause. Thank you in particular to Stephanie Jennings at Fairytale Flowers for all her organisation and assistance. To be supported by a local business emphasises to the students the value of community support and involvement.
