Baking for a worthy cause

After recently finding out about the impact cancer had on her family, Selin Demir felt inspired to participate in the Cancer Council’s Biggest Morning Tea.

The Year 11 student will host a morning tea on Thursday 23 May with a goal to raise $1,000.

Students throughout the School are invited to wear the colour pink on the day.

There will be a bake sale in the morning at the Gate, and near the canteen at Recess. Students are being encouraged to bring along a baked good to sell.

High School students will be treated to a breakfast in their tutor groups that morning by making a donation.

“I’m getting the whole year group involved, hopefully each one of them will bake something and bring it in,” Selin said.

“We hope it will become a tradition for each Year 11 year group to host the Biggest Morning Tea each year.”

Selin said she has always wanted to do something special for the school.

“I found out recently a lot of my family have been impacted by cancer,” she said.

IGS Deputy Principal Mary Duma encouraged Selin to get involved in the Biggest Morning Tea, and after doing some research, she decided it was the perfect fit.

“I really like the whole idea of it, how people get together to have breakfast and while doing that you get to raise money for such an amazing cause,” she said.

“My grandmother had breast cancer and was able to survive. My great grandmother also had stomach cancer, she was able to survive for three years but then passed away.”
