School students urged to ‘think pink’ for community initiative

October 28, 2013

Bingara Central School is preparing to participate in the community PINK day on Friday November 1.

The front of the school will be illuminated pink for the week. Students and staff are encouraged to wear pink on Friday 1st November. Face painting and hair-spraying will be available for a small donation.

A pink cake will be cut at recess and students will be able to purchase a piece.

A guessing competition along with colouring-in competitions and art competitions will be run for students. There are great prizes on offer.

The staff will have a pink themed morning tea. A pink barbecue lunch will also be available to staff and students on Friday 1st November.

Mr Galvin is planning to shear a pink sheep to raise funds to this worthy cause.

Bingara Central School is proud to support this community initiative to raise funds for the NSW Cancer Council, Breast Cancer and the Community Comfort Group.

“Congratulations Tiffany Galvin for the phenomenal effort and enthusiasm she contributes to this worthwhile cause,” organiser of the Central School’s pink week, Chris Whitfeld, said.

In addition, there will be a mass head shave on Friday 1st November.

Students are currently seeking sponsorship, and funds raised will be donated to the North West Cancer Centre in Tamworth.
