Pink Day – Sausage Sizzle

On 9 August, we celebrated Breast Cancer Awareness by raising money to go towards the Breast Cancer Foundation at our annual Pink Day. Although the weather may have blown a few too many napkins away, our Māori and Pasifika girls helped raise awareness and money by doing a sausage sizzle. This proved to be a successful day with girls lining up before sausages had even been cooked! This wouldn’t have been successful if it wasn’t for our Pasifika and Māori Leaders and from the helping hands of our Māori and Pasifika peers. Overall, it was a great day and we were able to help raise awareness and money for the Breast Cancer Foundation.
