October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and on 23rd October, our School Health Nurse Barbara Tandi came into school to raise awareness and signpost our pupils to more information.
1 in 7 women in the UK will develop breast cancer in their lifetime. Symptoms can include a lump, but this isn’t the only form of breast cancer. It is caused by a combination of our genes, environment and our lifestyles.
It is important for everyone to be aware and to encourage each other to go to the GP if there are changes that are new and or unusual.
As part of Barbara’s stand, she was also giving out badges to raise awareness in the community – here are some of our Year 11s proudly wearing theirs!
