Relay for life


​Calen District State College will be participating in the Relay for Life in Finch Hatton on the 12th and 13th August 2017.  WE have only five weeks left beore we take the walk of pride.  The students have done no fundraising this year due to a very busy year, so we are asking each family to sell a book of raffle tickets to help raise some much needed funds for cancer research.  Tickets have arrived and will be handed out soon to the students who have registered to participate.  Details of the event and guidelines:


When: Saturday 12th August and Sunday 13th August 2017

Where: Finch Hatton Showgrounds in the Pioneer Valley

Drop off Time: 2:00pm sharp (Sat 12/8/17)

Pick up Time: 8:00am sharp (Sun 13/8/17)

What to Wear: Please wear  a Relay for Life shirt if you have one, if you have not got one you can see Mrs Durnsford ASAP and she  may be able to contact Relay for Life for a spare one for you.  The theme this year is a moment in time, I will talk to the students to see if they want to go ahead with the theme or just wear Relay shirts.

What to Bring: Money (food and drinks will be on sale); candles for the candle ceremony (these will be on sale); sleeping bag; chair; water; lollies and other food you wish to eat.


I would like to say a very BIG thank you to Ms Forster for gtiving up her weekend to come out to Finch Hatton to help supervise the students.
