STAFF MORNING TEA FOR FROCKTOBER 2021

On Friday 29 October, Secondary Campus staff will come together in a shared morning tea in conjunction with Frocktober 2021. It is also a time to remember a much loved and missed colleague Jenna Crierie, who was sadly lost to ovarian cancer in October 2020 at age 33.

Our connection to Frocktober began when Jenna was approached by the Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation (OCRF) to be involved. Her cousin, talented Adelaide fashion designer, Jaimie Sortino, also became part of the fundraising team creating a couture gown to be modelled by the OCRF patron, the Honorable Julie Bishop. The project is a way to share Jenna’s story, provide support to other women affected by the disease and raise urgently needed funds for the research projects undertaken by OCRF.  For the second time in two years, Former Foreign Minister Ms Julie Bishop will wear a custom-made pink gown designed by Jaimie to raise awareness of this insidious disease. Unfortunately, no early detection test is available at present for this kind of cancer.

Staff will have the opportunity to wear a touch of pink, Jenna’s favourite colour, for a gold coin donation at the morning tea.

Every 8 hours, an Australian woman dies from ovarian cancer.  Around 70% of women diagnosed are already in the advanced stages of the disease.
