Domremy students step out

Year 7 students Jesse Cetrola, Gabrielle Souter, Amy Fechner, and Lily Everest were among the group who walked to raise funds for a breast cancer support organisation.

Domremy College Five Dock students walked as the sun rose on October 15 to raise more than $4700 for the Breast Cancer Network Australia.

More than 170 students, staff and parents dressed in pink and completed the 7km Bay Walk from Rodd Point and around Iron Cove to the College gates. Others supplied refreshments at the end of the walk, and gave behind-the-scenes support. This included bike riders, photographers, parents who donated items for breakfast on the morning of the walk and for a fundraising raffle. The 2016 College student leadership team organised the event.

Year 11 Co-ordinator Natasha Maoudis was overwhelmed by the level of participation, effort and generosity of those  involved.

“There exists within our College community, a generosity of spirit which provides a strong sense of solidarity,” she said. “Our community has always come together in support of worthwhile initiatives, to help make a difference in the lives of others, and this was no exception.”

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
