Ahoy me hearties! School sheds light on kid can­cer

Whitsunday Times - - 7 DAY TV GUIDE -

CAN­NON­VALE State School’s ex­cel­lent be­hav­iour meant no one had to walk the plank on Fri­day for Dress like a Pi­rate Day.

In­stead it was all party, party, party, when their first lunch break turned into a pi­rate disco at the school’s hall.

The day was or­gan­ised to raise money for re­search into the preven­tion and cure of child­hood brain tu­mours.

The school raised $656.20 through a gold coin do­na­tion.

It was a great ef­fort from 618 stu­dents.

Even the school’s teach­ers and staff joined in on the cos­tume fun.

Lana Tay­lor, Leila Pan­nett, Si­enna Pan­nett, Jade Healey, In­di­anna Townsend and Is­abelle Kratz from Grade 3 dressed like pi­rates for their last day of school for the week at Can­non­vale State School.
