Penrith Anglican College supports cutting-edge cancer research

Penrith Anglican College is a Pre-K- 12 school located in Orchard Hills. We believe Service and Community Engagement are vital in developing students to be well-rounded people.

ACRF is close to our heart as many of our students have been affected by the devastating impact of cancer. Year 10 chooses a charity to fundraise for each year. Students nominate a range of charities and voted for the cause they would most like to support, and this year chose to fundraise for Australian Cancer Research Foundation.

Students completed a range of fundraising activities from February – August raising $6000 for ACRF. We held a bake sale, movie and pizza nights, a mufti day, sausage sizzle and breakfast. It turns out teenagers like fundraising with food! Thank you to our school community, especially our parents, for supporting our efforts. The efforts culminated in a Charity Ball, which was a great evening. Our students loved the opportunity to dress up and celebrate the achievements of our fundraising

We want to see a world where no family has to endure the devastating impact cancer has. Research is key to finding a cure, and in the future, preventing cancer. That’s why we support ACRF.

ACRF have been great to work with and a worthwhile cause. ACRF are quite stringent in the way they allocate funds, so we are confident that all our funds raised will be making a direct impact.

We would also like to also say thanks to Signwave for their support in printing our giant cheque.
