Balcombe Grammar School

Welcome!

Balcombe Grammar School will be hosting its first ever Relay For Life on the last day of term 3, our Footy Colours 'Gone Wild' Day.

All primary school students and staff are invited to dress up in their footy colours, join their house teams and walk in honour of friends and family.

Relay For Life is a fun and moving experience that raises vital funds for the Cancer Council’s research, prevention and support services.

Relay is a chance for the community to recognise and celebrate local cancer survivors, those going through a cancer experience and their carers, to honour and remember loved ones lost and to raise money to help save more lives.

Join the thousands of Australians who take part in Cancer Council’s Relay For Life each year and make strides towards a cancer free future. Join the 2022 Balcombe Grammar School Relay today!
