In the pink for a day

Students in the pink.

STEYNING Grammar School students were all pretty in pink last week to raise money for Breast Cancer Campaign.

Sixth form members were asked to wear as many items of pink clothing as possible in a bid to create the biggest pink human picture, which was then uploaded onto the ‘Wear it Pink’ website.

Cancer Research balloons were then released and the sixth form rugby, football and netball teams were seen as never before - as pink clad dancers.

The dance groups performed to launch the day, with a second performance at lunchtime in the canteen for all the year 9 to 11 pupils.

The dance spectacular was choreographed by sixth formers Hester Gill, Georgia Tysall-Blay and Brienne Thompson-Fields

Students could also purchase Breast Cancer Awareness badges, with all money raised going towards funds for a local mammogram screening for early detection.

The charity day at the Shooting Field school was co-ordinated by the student peer educators and listeners, which includes all year 9 to 11 pupils.

All sixth formers were also given a presentation produced by the peer educators, about facts on risk factors, symptoms, detection and diagnosis, treatment and the Breast Cancer Campaign.

The school also plans to hold a similar day in February next year to raise awareness of testicular cancer.
