People are encouraged to either write a post it note for loved one’s or a quote reminding them of Daffodil Day. There is a Daffodil Day photo frame that staff & students can have their photos taken on their own phones or camera. We have fun packs that students are able to take home & enjoy the activities or use to decorate our house here in Student Central. The aim is to raise money through (gold coin) donations for Daffodil Day from staff & students, this will go to the Cancer Council to assist with their ongoing work to cure cancer. The house & frame will be here all week from Tuesday through to Friday, please come along, donate & be involved in the activities.
