Read-a-thon a bestseller
IT took less than a month for students at St Pius X School to raise more than $5000 to help their school.
The students held a school read-athon between July 27 and August 7, seeking sponsorship from the community to purchase new school equipment.
The Fundraising Group general manager Brendan Hopp said it was encouraging that schools were embracing the fundraiser.
"We're into our second year of the School Read-A-Thon. We've found schools and students have really embraced the concept, improving their literacy all while raising some great extra money for their school."
