Teacher Mr Denis Kelliher with Xavier Wells (Year 3)
“Xavier has had a tough time recently. While he suffered from a brain tumour rather than leukaemia, we felt this was a great way for him to have some fun and get involved,” said Prep teacher Mr Denis Kelliher.
“Many of the friends Xavier met in hospital were children receiving treatment for leukaemia and it normally takes two years or more to treat,” explained Mr Kelliher.The Prep staff have already raised $5,000 for the foundation and are hoping to raise more than $8,000.
