HIGHBURY Preparatory School celebrated Sunflower Day, alongside Spring Day last week. Pupils celebrated in a very special way — by showing solidarity with the brave fight that children with life-threatening blood disorders face daily.

Highbury sold 859 Sunflower Fund “topes” at school, raising over R25 000 to assist The Sunflower Fund in increasing the South African Bone Marrow Registry (SABMR).

All the children, from ages two to 12, came to school wearing their topes in all sorts of ways — as headbands, masks, scarves, armbands, with the smallest even managing to wear them as dresses.

After Chapel, the Foundation Phase boys all gathered together on Dauncey field to make the shape of a flower, holding hands and wearing their topes to show how they are all united in the fight against cancer. - Supplied
