Today Hamlyn Banks Primary dressed in red. We are raising funds for Bleeding Disorders Awareness Week. The money that we raise will go to the Haemophilia Foundation Australia to put towards research.
At our school, we have two students who have haemophilia, Harrison and Callum. Their blood is different to other students because it does not clot, meaning the blood takes a while to stop. ‘Every second day I have a small needle put into my vein, which feeds me the medicine and it helps my blood clot,’ says Harrison.
During the week, all students have been learning how blood disorders affect people’s lives.

HFV hosted the Red Classic around Albert Park on a lovely Sunday afternoon. The sea of red looked great as people enjoyed a stroll and BBQ afterwards.
Now in its 10th year, Paint the Town Red was run by Donna Field and her family in Neerim South, Victoria. It was another successful day for Donna and family as they sold cupcakes, a sausage sizzle and anything red.
