Read-a-thon a best­seller

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Front Page -

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."
