Centre director Nicole Jeffrey-Forward asked families to support Footy Colours Day to raise money for the foundation’s back-on-track program, which works to minimise the disruption cancer can have on students.

‘The centre wanted to participate in the event, as we have a staff member here who has just overcome cancer and some staff members who have a family member going through their own cancer journey,’ Mrs Jeffrey-Forward said.

‘We all think it is such a great cause to get behind.’

Children and staff played football and soccer and took part in face painting and hair colouring.
