STEYNING Grammar School students were all pretty in pink recently to support a breast cancer campaign.

Sixth form members were asked to wear as many items of pink clothing as possible in a bid to create the biggest pink human picture, which was then uploaded onto the ‘Wear it Pink’ website.

Cancer Research balloons were then released and the sixth form rugby, football and netball teams were seen as never before - as pink clad dancers. The troupes performed to launch the day, with a second performance at lunchtime in the canteen for all the Year 9 to 11 pupils.

The dance spectacular was choreographed by sixth formers Hester Gill, Georgia Tysall-Blay and Brienne Thompson-Fields.

The charity day at the Shooting Field school was co-ordinated by the student peer educators and listeners, which includes all Year 9 to 11 pupils. All sixth formers were also given a presentation produced by the peer educators about breast cancer.

The school plans to hold a similar day in February next year to raise awareness of testicular cancer.
