STUDENTS and parents at St Augustine’s in Mossman enjoyed tasty cupcakes yesterday and raised $330 for the Cancer Council’s Biggest Morning Tea.
On Monday the Prep students had fun decorating 200 cupcakes donated by Sweetly Sliced owner Rochelle Petris, who came in to give them a hand covering the cupcakes in icing and sprinkles.
‘‘It was a great way to get involved with the kids and help raise money for the cancer council,’’ Rochelle said.
The hardest decisions for the prep students was which sprinkles to coat the delicious cupcakes.
Teacher Alison Pendlebury said raising money to help cure cancer is close to the heart.
‘‘I lost my dad to cancer and last year Mrs Devlin the principal, her husband is a cancer survivor,’’ she said.
‘‘We have lost kids and parents and this is an easy to for the kids to help.
‘‘Even though at this age they do not understand the reasons behind it, my class has been doing it for four years and they love helping.
‘‘The parents used to donate the patty-cakes but this year Rochelle’s done it and that is just fantastic.’’
The cupcakes were sold yesterday at a morning tea for the parents, who also donated money to the cause, to help exceed their target of $300.
