Earlier this term Wee Waa High School’s Representative Council staged a fundraiser for Jeans for Genes Day.
SRC members, Thomas Eldridge, Billy Shearin and Caitlyn Coutts-Smith delivered a presentation about genetic disorders, the incredible research work of the Children’s Medical Research Institute and how much has been raised by their foundation to support vital research.
Students also watched an emotional video presentation by a mother who was diagnosed with a Yolk Sac Tumour as a newborn and how their family coped, and the support they received from the foundation.
The SRC also discussed the best way for Wee Waa High School to contribute and raise awareness for the foundation is to hold their our own barbecue fundraiser and wear blue jeans.
