Our next casual day fundraiser will be held on the last day of Term 3, Friday 24th September, supporting the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Make-A-Wish is an Australian charity that creates life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses.
Several of our Mitcham students have received a wish, which has supported them and their families and provided a positive focus during challenging times.
Each child's Wish Journey is carefully planned and delivered over several stages to create a positive, lasting impact. Wishes are designed to complement a child's medical treatment, working to calm, distract and inspire at a time they need it most. When a wish is realised, a child discovers that despite their situation, anything is possible. In this way, wishes deliver both an immediate boost and long lasting effect on the lives of sick kids, their families and communities.
Through SRC discussions and class meetings, students have elected the casual day dress theme to be purple and yellow. These colours have historically been connected with Make-A-Wish.
We look forward to seeing everyone in their purple and yellow clothes. Students may wear a little colour or wear a lot, but please make it SunSmart! Don’t forget to bring along a gold coin donation.
