MT BULLER PRIMARY SCHOOL INSPIRED TO SUPPORT BLUE SEPTEMBER!
On September 11, 2012 Mt Buller Primary School held a Blue September ‘Blue Dress Day’ to help raise funds for men’s cancers.
Students went to school dressed from head-to-toe in blue, and also had their faces painted and hair sprayed blue...
It all started with little Darcy; a grade five student at Mt Buller Primary who saw a Blue September advertisement on TV, which made him think of his uncle who passed away from cancer.
Whilst at school, Darcy then discovered some of his friends had also lost male family members to cancer. He approached teachers to see if the school could run a Blue September Day to help fund raise for men’s cancers.
In total, Mt Buller Primary raised over $100 for Blue September-what an inspiration Darcy is to us all!

Last years Blue September winner of the Hyundai car prize, Jamie Bardelmeyer is giving back to a cause that has been a great impact on his life.
Jamie helped promote Blue September at the Carlton VS St Kilda AFL game – he rattled donation tins and painted people blue, along with the rest of the caring volunteers that all did their bit to help raise awareness of men’s cancers and funds for vital cancer research.
Jamie had a cancer scare himself that made him reassess his life. He is now strong enough to overcome the tough times and has become a very important part of cancer awareness and a fantastic advocate for Blue September.
