GLENDALE Technology High School students will go head-to-head with staff this week in the school's annual memorial fund-raiser.
The Harman Cup is a legacy carried by the school in honour of former PDHPE teacher Koen Harman, who died in 2010.
Established by Mr Harman five years ago, the cup created a healthy rivalry between students and teachers, who compete against each other in a soccer match every year.
This week, year 12 students hope to take back the cup after losing to staff four years in a row.
Head teacher welfare Craig Clinton said continuing the annual tradition maintained Mr Harman's work.
"Koen was an inspirational leader but also a highly compassionate and practical supporter of students through his teaching and welfare work," he said.
The fund-raiser is a week-long event, which includes an out-of-uniform day, barbecue and the official opening of the Harman Area, as well as the cup play-off itself.
Two matches will be held at Jack McLaughlin Oval, Edgeworth, this Friday.
Combined Primary Schools year 6 students will take on Glendale's year 7 at 5pm, while Glendale High's year 12 will attempt to win the cup from staff at 7pm.
Traditionally it has been a closed event, but this year the public is invited, with the school calling for gold coin donations.
Proceeds will be donated to John Hunter Hospital's Kaleidoscope and the Nicholas Butters Trust.
