Walk to 'Save Our Sons'

On Tuesday 26th April the entire Year 10 cohort showed their support for the Walk to ‘SAVE OUR SONS’ charity event which involved a boy Emilio who suffers from Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. He was being pushed in his wheelchair 369km from Albury to Melbourne by his parents over a two week period and as they were coming through Whittlesea, our Year 10 students were assembled along Forest Street opposite the school to cheer them on. The school organised a gold coin donation from the Year 10 students and along with the staff we were able to donate just over $140 for the foundation. It was fantastic to see the overwhelming support for this cause, particularly as the school has its very own member in Year 10 with this medical condition, Sean Piekarksi. Sean said he was “really overwhelmed and happy with the support and it is great to get awareness out for this condition.”
