Highbury don topes for Sunflower Fund

Senior Primary boys, Stephen McKenzie, Ezile Nadada, Luca Sandri, Levi Wilcox, Lethukuthula Chonco and Kwezi Dube.

HIGHBURY Preparatory School celebrated Sunflower Day together with Spring Day on Friday, 31 August in a very special way that showed solidarity towards the brave fight that children with life-threatening blood disorders face daily.

Highbury sold 859 Sunflower Fund ‘topes’ at school, raising more than R25 000 to assist The Sunflower Fund in increasing the South African Bone Marrow Registry (SABMR).

On Friday, 31 August, Highbury children from age two to 12 came to school wearing their topes in all sorts of ways – as headbands, masks, scarves, armbands and the littlest even managed to wear them as dresses.

After Chapel, the Foundation Phase boys (from Grade R to Grade 3) gathered on Dauncey field and together they made the shape of a flower, holding hands and wearing their topes, to show how they are all united in the fight against cancer.
