Zaidee's Rainbow Foundation
On the 14th March, Goulburn Valley Grammar School, in cooperation with the Student Representative Council held an out of uniform day to raise funds and awareness for the Zaidee’s Rainbow Foundation. The casual clothes day was themed “rainbow colours” and the Tute challenge involved the most colourful Tutor and Tutees parading around Telle- Tubbyland. On the day, we also sold Zaidee shoe laces and held a successful raffle and poster competition. Alan Turner came to school to view the photos and accept the $1500.00 cheque from the SRC Prefects.
Zaidee Turner died suddenly after a blood vessel burst on her brain, known as a cerebral aneurism. The Zaidee’s Rainbow Foundation has the aim of matching organ and tissue donors with a suitable recipient. One of the aims of the Foundation is to promote organ and tissue donation by selling merchandise, including the well-known Zaidee’s rainbow shoelaces. The Foundation hopes to encourage people to talk about and consider organ donation. More information is available on the website. Thank you to all who supported the Foundation.
