We will be holding our own Strive to be Kind Day, on Thursday the 21st of March, we ask that you wear a piece of denim and hang one of the coloured sunflowers in the yellow heart on the wall opposite the sports notice boards. 

We are supporting the Allison Baden-Clay Foundation which was created in memory of a lady who was a victim of domestic violence in Brisbane. As a family, they have created a foundation to not only raise awareness, but they are building it to be able to take action to stop domestic violence. As a college, we will be doing our part next Thursday and we ask for everyone to do their part by wearing denim or partaking in the heart creation.
