Central’s Broadcast TV students have been awarded a certificate of appreciation for their work for the Children’s Leukemia and Cancer Research Foundation.
Lecturer Peter Wharram and the Broadcast Television team received the award for their support and participation in the Keep the Flame Alive Dance for a Cure & Guinness World Record held earlier in the year for children with cancer.
Perth made its way into the record books for making the Worlds Longest Awareness Ribbon in April. The Children’s Leukemia and Cancer Research Foundation worked with schools and families across WA to sign segments of yellow ribbon with messages of hope and support for sick kids.
The segments were sewn together to a world record length of 1,940 metres in order to help raise awareness for the need of continued research into childhood cancers.
