Macquarie plays cricket for a cause

23 March 2017

Macquarie Anglican Grammar School came together on Friday 17 March for the annual Pink Stumps Day in support of the McGrath Foundation.

The weather was perfect and so was the generosity of the school community. Games were played in the lead up to determine who would play in the house final, where Dunlop House emerged as the winner. There was also a competitive game between the staff and parents, with the parents eventually taking the win.


Students baked cupcakes and made slushies to sell, cooked a sausage sizzle and cheered on the players from the sidelines. In addition, all senior students brought in a gold coin donation to support the charity.

A total of $1600 was raised for the McGrath Foundation.

“Pink Stumps Day is one of our most fun events on the school calendar, as well as being a fundraiser for a great cause.”

“Well done to all our students who helped out in lots of different ways leading up to the day and on the day itself,” said Mr Mansour.

 “Thankyou also to Mr Andy Thorne, who planned the day and coordinated all the student helpers.”

“Thankyou to our parents who came along and played with great spirit against our staff. We look forward to next year’s Pink Stumps Day and hope that the staff can outplay the parents next time!”
