100 Face Masks donated to Chris O'Brien Lifehouse Cancer Hospital

12 November 2020

Glenaeon Duke of Edinburgh students Pipi and Olivia, have collected over 100 face masks hand-crafted by a team of Glenaeon volunteers for use by the staff and visitors at Chris O’Brien Lifehouse cancer treatment Hospital in Camperdown.

Students from many year levels gave up their lunchtimes and worked at home to create the masks, using different methods. Handwork Teacher Elizabeth Ellean said she was very proud of the girls and all the volunteers who donated their time, gained a new skill, and did something wonderful for others in our community. “It has been a tremendous experience for our students, and we hope that the patients at the Hospital undergoing treatment get some joy from the brightly-colour hand-crafted face masks worn by their visitors.” 

Head of School, Andrew Hill said this was a great initiative by Glenaeon Teachers and Students and was an example of the altruistic and artisan programs coming together for the good of the community as a whole.
