  • Pink Ribbon Day

    Pink Ribbon Day RibbonABOUT 15,000 women across the nation are diagnosed with breast cancer each year.  One in eight women will experience breast cancer.  There isn’t anyone who won’t be touched by cancer in their lives at some point.  

    Homebush Boys High School is a school that continues on with its strong donation traditions.  This month, we’re harnessing the power to raise funds for the National Breast Cancer Foundation.  Pink Ribbon Day is an annual event run by the Cancer Council which aims to raise funds and awareness about breast and gynaecological cancers.

    Homebush Boys High School encourages all to ‘think pink’ and thanks those who will be involved in Pink Ribbon Day initiatives.
