Capril is expanding!
Good Shepherd College in Hamilton, Victoria is getting on the Capril bandwagon this year. In April they will be holding a fundraising day where students turn up in capes and donate money which goes to Beyond Blue to help fight depression. This is an important time of making students aware of depression and its effects. This will not only help them to understand some of the issues associated with mental illness, but will also give them ways they can get help if they themselves are suffering from depression. They will also be having a guest speaker come and talk to them about mental health issues.
This fundraising effort will be featured in the local paper, and as a result, hopefully more schools in the area will get involved with Capril next year.
Photos will be posted in April of students in capes!
