Students serve up generosity
THEY might only be eight, but the students at St Francis of Assisi Primary School are already helping to save lives.
Last week, 45 Year 2 students at the school set up and managed a pop-up cafe and raised more than $600 for a village in East Timor.
The students served breakfast, morning tea and lunch to the school community every day for a week, working as chefs, waiters and maître d’s.
All money raised is going towards supplying a water pump for the village.
Year 2 teacher Chris Boyer said the event was a success.
“Our tables were fully booked every day,” he said.
Katrina Whyman’s son Billy was one of the chefs at the cafe. She said it was encouraging to see how keen the kids were to help others in need.
