MOVEMBER 2017 – LET’S GROW MOUSTACHES!

MOVEMBER 2017 – LET’S GROW MOUSTACHES!

Movember is an annual event involving the growing of moustaches during the month of November to raise awareness of men's health issues, such as prostate cancer, testicular cancer, etc. Do not be surprised if you see CISS staff and students growing a moustache during the month of November! 

 

Let’s see how CISS teachers look after a 30 – day journey of growing moustaches

 

Female teachers and students had “moustaches” as well

 

Classrooms were decorated with many little moustaches

 

Want more moustaches? We had a lot of them at the fundraising booths. 

 

Teachers were given learning resources and discussion strategies to talk to students about prostate and testicular cancer prevention. Classes were also encouraged to take preventative action by being physically. Being physically active is one of the best ways to prevent cancer before adulthood.

 Every Friday for the month of November, students were able to participate in “Spirit Days” where students could dress according to the theme to fundraise and donate towards the Terry Fox Foundation

 

Students wore their pyjamas in Spirit Day

 

From humble beginnings back in 2003 the Movember movement has grown to be a truly global one. Movember has had over 5 million participants raise over $750 million across the world, which has transformed into over 1000 men’s health projects.
