I would like to extend a huge congratulations and well done to Year 12 students Cristina Broncano and Shayla Lomans for the initiative they took in organising this year's Albion Park High School – Relay for Life team.
The girls have worked very hard over the last three weeks to register the team and organise fundraising for the Cancer Council, which culminated in the annual event at Albion Park Showground. In the short time they had to get organised they still managed to raise $435, all of which will go to Cancer research and support.
Amazing work girls. You should be proud of yourselves. Well done to the entourage of year 12 students who attended on the day as part of the school team, not to mention the many other students from our school who were also in attendance as part of teams they had entered with their family or their local sporting club. There was a great atmosphere down at the showground and it was so great to see our students giving up their weekend in order to put the needs of others ahead of their own. Bravo. I'm sure there would have been some sore and tired legs the next day.
The following students were involved in Relay for Life. We had a forty five minute set which was made up of three whole group numbers as well as solo's from Latai Kinikini (Year 8), Jameisha Regal-Baker (Year 11) and Ryan Bonacina (Year 12).
The students who were part of the Vocal Ensemble that day were: Jake Walker (Year7), Isabelle Quick (Year8), Latai Kinikini, Daniella Walker, Daniel Munro, Jack Mangoulias, Aleiya Jolliffe, Sophie Elbourn (Year 10), Jameisha Regal-Baker (Year 11), Ryan Bonacina (Year 12) and Keeley Horton
The group has received nothing but praise for their amazing sound and for how professionally they conducted themselves.
