MacKillop’s Year 11 students participated in the Gift of Life Walk on Friday 24 March to highlight the importance of organ and tissue donation.
A majority of students from the Year 11 cohort stayed back after school on Friday to complete the 5km walk and to promote DonateLife’s call for people to register as organ donors.
The students spread the message by sharing content on their social media accounts and they were also encouraged to have conversations with their families about registering as donors through www.donatelife.gov.au.
The walk is organised by Gift of Life Incorporated in conjunction with DonateLife and the Government’s Organ and Tissue Authority. It aims to promote greater community awareness of the importance of organ and tissue donation and transplantation by sharing the ‘Discover, Decide, Discuss’ strategy:
Congratulations to the students of Year 11 for participating in the walk and for helping to spread the message!
