Yarrawonga Chronicle - - Front Page -

Co­bram and District Spe­cial­ist School are hold­ing var­i­ous fundrais­ing events in the lead up to Yar­ra­wonga’s Re­lay For Life to be held in Oc­to­ber.

The school will also be par­tic­i­pat­ing in the re­lay and Co­bram on the Mur­ray Leo’s Club have also been in­vited to at­tend.

The stu­dents will pub­li­cise fundrais­ing events on their school Face­book page along with the Sun Coun­try Yar­ra­wonga Re­lay for Life page.

In July stu­dents hosted a Trash and Trea­sure stall at the Co­bram Li­ons Log Cabin Mar­ket.

They re­quested do­na­tions from the school com­mu­nity and were suc­cess­fully in rais­ing over $180 for the cause. This term they have also raised money by cook­ing toasted sand­wiches and mak­ing hot drinks at morn­ing tea for staff.

The VCAL en­rolled stu­dents from the Leo club will be co­or­di­nat­ing the school’s in­volve­ment and col­lect­ing ev­i­dence for their Learn­ing Out­comes as part of their Per­sonal De­vel­op­ment Unit 2 cur­ricu­lum.

Staff from the school will also join the Leo group on the re­lay week­end. Stu­dents will be stay­ing at the event overnight at JC Lowe Oval and will be su­per­vised by school staff.

The Leo group have also been in­vited to join the Co­bram based Oasis Movers and Shak­ers team and will work on fundrais­ing to­gether for this won­der­ful cause. Al­ready the school has as­sisted the OM&S fundrais­ing over $900.

Re­lay for Life is a chance for com­mu­ni­ties to recog­nise and cel­e­brate those who have over­come can­cer or are un­der­go­ing treat­ment, as well as the peo­ple who care for them.

Re­lay For Life also pro­vides an op­por­tu­nity to cel­e­brate the mem­ory of loved ones lost to can­cer.

There are no re­stric­tions when it comes to Re­lay for Life. You don’t have to be over 18 to get in­volved – any­one can do it.

Stu­dents and staff are look­ing for­ward to rais­ing the aware­ness of Re­lay for Life and work­ing to­gether as a team to help sup­port this great cause.
