HeartKids Australia launched Sweetheart Day on 14 February to raise awareness of childhood heart disease and encourage donations to continue their work in providing support, advocacy, growing awareness and enabling further research into CHD. CHD is not a single condition. It includes a wide range of heart defects that a child is born with or develops in childhood as a result of other illnesses. These conditions are not the result of lifestyle factors.

To celebrate Sweetheart Day and to acknowledge several in the Orana Community who are affected by CHD, our students dressed in Red and donated to this worthy cause.

For further information on how you can show your support through fundraising or volunteering, please contact Shelley at or 0402 345 209.
