A giant wave of red hit the shores of Christ Church last week with boys and teachers in the Preparatory School dressing up in their best red costumes for Redkite.

All the boys and teachers were encouraged to dress up as their favourite red character for a gold coin donation. The result was over $800 raised for young cancer patients.

“A big thanks to all who got involved and impressed with their costumes,” says Year 5 Teacher, Jasmine Jeffs.

“A good mix of super heroes and a giant raspberry added to the fun of it all.”

“Throughout the entire journey, Redkite offers support to children and young people with cancer and their families from the moment of diagnosis until after treatment finishes.”

“There are many ways in which schools can help families impacted by their child’s cancer, for example fundraising or volunteering.”

“Redkite has been providing support for over 30 years and we are glad all boys have had the opportunity to gain awareness of this amazing organisation and support their ongoing efforts.”

Year 5 student Joshua Harmer said, “By taking part you feel very proud of yourself – knowing that you have donated to a family in need.”
