This year Relay for life took place on the 9th of April at Frank Kitts Park. This is an event which works to raise awareness towards cancer in New Zealand, to remember our loved ones and to fund raise for research into this life changing disease. As a school, St Mary’s College raised over $1,600 through netball games with our brother schools along with hours of bucket collecting. This money will now be used to further help the cancer society to grow there resources which help families dealing with cancer as well as families morning a loss from cancer. Overall the day ran really smoothly with no malfunctions and plenty of laughs along the way, it was clear to see that the Year 13s that stayed over night were in much need of a sleep by Sunday morning. Natalia and I have thoroughly enjoyed the process of organising Relay For Life this year. We really encourage all senior St Mary’s students to get involved with Relay For Life next year as it is an eye opening and enjoyable event.
