LAST Thurs­day and Fri­day were Footy Colours Day when stu­dents from across the shire got be­hind the Fight Can­cer Foun­da­tion.

Each child that dressed up was re­quired to make a gold coin do­na­tion to the cause, which has been run­ning since 2005.

The Fight Can­cer Foun­da­tion’s ed­u­ca­tion sup­port pro­gram works with ma­jor pae­di­atric hos­pi­tals to keep kids with can­cer en­gaged with their ed­u­ca­tion.
