Continuing to support ‘Beanie for Brain Cancer’

From the Head of House (Aungier), John McCoy

As I mentioned at briefing, we will be continue to sell Beanies for Brain Cancer each lunchtime over the next two weeks. Beanies are $20 each, which goes to the Mark Hughes Foundation.

For those who missed the assembly last week, here is the link to the clip which all students watched last week. Year 5 student Digger Callander sadly lost his father after a battle with brain cancer last year. Matt played a big part in launching the Beanie for Brain Cancer initiative in the NRL to support the Mark Hughes Foundation. The Beanie for Brain Cancer NRL round will take place in Round 12 (24th – 27th May), to raise much needed awareness and funds to promote research into this terrible disease and provide patient support.

Furthermore, to launch the NRL Beanie for Brain Cancer Round on Thursday 24 May, Channel Nine’s Today Show sports segment with Tim Gilbert – will be broadcasting – LIVE from 5:30am on Bondi Beach, Sydney.  During the course of the morning Waverley College students, staff and families are invited to take  part in a World Record attempt of “The largest gathering of people wearing beanies”.

We are hoping as many student, staff and families from Waverley can  participate in this event. Those attending are to wear their beanie of choice (or purchase a Mark Hughes Foundation Beanie) to Bondi Beach from 5.30am to be counted in the record.

We are allowing student to wear the beanies at school over the next two weeks. Please note that on Fridays cadets cannot wear the beanies in public when in cadet uniform, but can wear them within school grounds.

Thanks for your support.
