Cathedral Leos get hearts beating fast this Valentine’s Day

Students from The Cathedral School Leo Club have been busy selling roses and love song serenades in the lead up to Valentine’s Day on 14 February in order to raise much needed funds for the Heart Foundation.

The Cathedral School Leo Advisor, Mrs Toni Lanphier said raising money for the Heart Foundation was a fitting cause for Valentine’s Day.

“Hearts are made for more than loving and it’s important to recognise this. Unfortunately heart disease remains the single biggest killer of men and women in Australia and the Heart Foundation works hard to improve heart disease prevention and care” Mrs Lanphier said.
