Each year the school holds the event and it is run by the school captains. this year’s captains; Ruby Davie, Lisa Straatman, Hunter Dowel and Max Davidson had spoken at assemblies in the weeks leading up to the day to emphasise what the day means and to give background information on CanTeen. The captains sold bandanas at school and were successful in making the day enjoyable for all that attended.
