Ss Peter and Paul show their support for Relay For Life

Kiama again turned purple and yellow to support Relay For Life on Wednesday.

Ss Peter and Paul Catholic Primary School staff, students and community members gathered on Surf Beach to recognise, celebrate and remember those who have been touched by cancer.

Flowers made by the students were places symbolically to create the word 'HOPE'.

“It is something that is important to us all,” principal Jacqueline Lee said.

“Prayers were prayed to ask for God's blessing on all those suffering from cancer, those caring for them and those who have lost loved ones.” 

It is important to the Ss Peter and Paul community that we actively participate in a variety of activities, which assist to develop an understanding of being a member of a wider community and a caring citizen.

Relay For Life is a chance for communities to recognise and celebrate those who have overcome cancer or are undergoing treatment, as well as the people who care for them.

Relay also provides an opportunity to celebrate the memory of loved ones lost to cancer. It is a day of hope. 

“It is important to the Ss Peter and Paul community that we actively participate in a variety of activities, which assist to develop an understanding of being a member of a wider community and a caring citizen,” Miss Lee said.
