A Rope of Hope!

Today is Bandana Day and the Sunflower Fund has a special place in the heart of our school.  A number of years ago one of our founders had leukemia and through her struggle to find a bone marrow donor, (which she eventually did, thank goodness), she came to work closely with the Sunflower Fund.

Today, the children who had bought new or current bandanas, could wear civvies to school – with their bandanas of course!  These bandanas were then tied together in a ‘Rope of Hope’ and strung along the outer fence of our school, from our Preparatory campus to our Senior Primary campus and back!  These bandanas will eventually be sewn together into quilts which will then be distributed to various organisations working with children!
