Every day for the last year, former TIGS teacher Renae Di Pietro [ nee Van Woerden] is living with a miracle. Her one year old daughter Stella is constantly a bright shining star in her life. This Friday she will be a beacon of hope for hundreds of people gathered near the lighthouse at Flagstaff Hill during Light the Night.
The annual walk with colourful lanterns raises funds to help the Leukaemia Foundation help more people battling a blood cancer. And this year there is an added feature. Thanks to the support of council the beautiful event at dusk is being held in conjunction with the Wollongong Twilight Markets managed by The Rotary Club of Corrimal.
With the Twilight Markets on at the same time organisers are expecting more people than ever to gather at Flagstaff Hill near Wollongong Harbour for the event that will transform the area into a sea of gold, white and blue. Those not involved in the walk will be in for an amazing sight. And there will also be a range of stalls and on-stage entertainment.
The entertainment this Friday includes three TIGS students Xia Lian Wilson, Byron Leitch and Molly Stewart who recently won the Sydney Eisteddfod and will sing Memory for her grandmother who is presently receiving support from the Leukaemia Foundation.

TIGS Olympians Emma McKeon and Jarrod Poort [ Class of 2012] and David McKeon [ Class of 2010] returned to us yesterday afternoon to share their stories and their experiences in Rio - everyone was so pleased to have them back! David commented ‘Was awesome to go back to my school to see all the support we got and give all the kids Hi-Fives’ They shared their journeys at assembly and were crowded round for autographs afterwards. The students were surprised to discover that Emma’s medals were so heavy, with each one weighing as much as a dinner plate! http://ow.ly/i/mA8A2 http://ow.ly/i/mA8E5
