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.

Stu­dents Shau­rya Thakur, Ruby Price and Al­lana Ass­abgy help out at the pop-up cafe.
