Jersey Day is an opportunity for students to wear their favourite sporting jersey to school. It’s also an occasion to begin a conversation with family and friends about the importance of becoming an organ and tissue donor. There are no monetary donations required, the day is purely about creating awareness and starting a conversation.
Jersey Day was inspired by the gift of life that Nathan Gremmo gave to six people when he became an organ donor at age 13. Many of you may not know, that our very own Mr Bailey was the recipient of Nathan’s heart. Mr Bailey shared his story at this morning’s Assembly and urged all to get behind this worthy cause and wear their jerseys on Monday.
