Seventh Form wear pink and blue for cancer awareness
9 November 2015
Seventh Form students are raising awareness for breast cancer and prostate cancer in style, with the boys wearing pink and the girls wearing blue every Friday. Deputy Head Boy Nicholas Davies explains why:
“It is needless to say that breast cancer and prostate cancer are hugely significant issues to our health – they affect thousands of people worldwide. We thought that the majority of us are unaware of the prominence of these diseases and how we can recognise the symptoms. Furthermore, it is clear that young people like ourselves are often reluctant to talk about health issues amongst each other.
Therefore the Seventh Form, led by the Decem, thought that they could play an important role in raising awareness of these issues to the rest of the school and the community beyond that. The Seventh Form boys have decided to turn School House pink every Friday to raise awareness for breast cancer. Meanwhile, the girls have decided to wear blue to raise awareness for prostate cancer. Along with the support of the staff, our collective aim is for the whole school to become more aware of these diseases and how they can affect each one of us.”
