Going pink for a loved teacher
THE green and gold of Lowood State School turned pink yesterday as the students and teachers raised money and awareness for breast cancer.
With one of the school's much-loved teachers undergoing surgery and chemotherapy for the illness the school's students wore pink for the cause.
Lowood State School teacher Sue Kitching has taken the remainder of the year off to fight the disease.
Along with pink ribbons and shirts and rotating school activities, the school raised money for the National Breast Cancer Foundation through donations and a sausage sizzle capped off with pink bread.
To finish off the day's activities the student body formed a huge pink ribbon, the symbol of the National Breast Cancer Foundation, on the school's oval.
