Cancer Council Art Eggs


My boys have been doing something for others.
Its what we all need to do-
think of others a little more.


They have been decorating wooden eggs
for The Cancer Council.
These eggs are sold around Easter time as a fundraiser.
Some eggs are also given to the courageous people
 fighting the hardest of battles.






is not just an organisation.
Its backbone are the volunteers in the shops,
the researchers, the educators, the supporting carers.
Its backbone are the people,
 who search out schools and other community groups
 to help where they can.
They quietly plug away, 
doing and amazingly selfless job.







My students researched messages 
of hope that 'spoke to' them,
and used the words to decorate their eggs.

It was touching to see the boys
 approach this task with such pride and care.
 It was wonderful to use Art as a link between
the students and the community.
