Bunbury Cathedral Grammar School 65 Roses Art

Bunbury Cathedral Grammar School Pre-Primary teacher Candice Carlisle organised a creative fundraiser in support of 65 Roses Day and her student, five-year-old Connor Barrett.

“We were inspired by Connor because he faces the daily challenges of living with CF with such bravery, resilience and an ever-present smile,” Ms Carlisle said.

“To support him and the 400 others with the disease in WA, the children created beautiful artwork, families donated funds and we all heard about the origin of the 65 Roses story.”

The rose became the international symbol in 1965 when a little boy mispronounced Cystic Fibrosis when he overhead his mother raising funds for research after her three of her sons received the diagnosis.
