Toolooa Relay For Life Team 2016

9/08/2016
Toolooa Relay for Life team 2016 
 
Toolooa’s team of superheroes have complete the 18 hour Relay for Life in style. This year saw a record number of students register as part of the Toolooa team (other students were members of other teams and should also be commended for their involvement) and raise and amazing figure of $5030.00.
 
A special thank you must go to RCR Energy who supported the Toolooa team. Formerly, Eagle Engineering, RCR Energy is a technology leader in power generation and energy plants.  Utilising advanced technologies for a range of conventional, combined cycle and renewable generation solutions, RCR delivers power stations and steam generation plants through turnkey engineering, procurement and construction (“EPC”) projects for energy projects across a diverse range of industries including infrastructure, oil & gas and mining.) By having their workforce wears pink shirts on Friday’s in recent months a collection box was donated to Relay for Life through Cameron and Toolooa State High. THANK YOU RCR!!!
 
Students fundraised such a fantastic amount by selling chocolates, money board tickets, raffle tickets and personal donations. 2016 saw the introduction of a Toolooa memory board where staff and students were able to honour loved ones who have lost their battle with cancer. Participation in the candlelight service again was very poignant and students’ maturity and personal reflection was very moving.
 
Olivia (member of our team) stepped up and performed in the talent show and took second place!! What makes it even more amazing first place was won by another Toolooa student Jessica Rose. Well done girls your efforts and performances were brilliant.
 
A special thank you to Miss Karen Petherick and Mrs Amanda Patzwald who gave up their weekend to assist with the team – it is great to work with such fantastic staff.
 
Well done to all involved!!
