Fintona community raises close to $9,000 for Relay for Life

25 March 2019

What an amazing effort from our girls and staff who so far have raised close to $9,000 for Relay for Life, a record breaking effort for team Fintona.

Relay For Life is an incredible overnight experience celebrating cancer survivors, honouring loved ones, and taking positive steps to fight back against cancer.

Throughout the course of the term, our girls planned and organised a series of events to raise funds for this great cause including situps in the gym, a bake sale, a sausage sizzle and on Friday 22 March, Ms Christa Ackermann, Science Co-ordinator and Mr Chris Williams , Commerce Co-ordinator, were brave enough to have their hair shaved by very eager students. It was wonderful to see the Fintona community come together in such a supportive way.

The series of events culminated in an overnight experience where the Fintona spirit of fundraising was well and trully alive among students and staff. Well done to everyone involved.
