ST. Pius X Pri­mary School has raised an in­cred­i­ble amount of $5000 for the Farm­ers’ Ap­peal.

We are a small school of 203 stu­dents and 135 fam­i­lies but the gen­eros­ity of our par­ents and stu­dents is ev­i­dent by the amount of money raised. The com­mu­nity spirit of the school lives by our motto “Liv­ing is Giv­ing”.

Sev­eral fundrais­ing days were held to raise money – in­clud­ing a Py­jama Day, St. Pius X Feast Day, and Fa­ther’s Day lun­cheon – which con­sisted of pump­kin soup made with pump­kins and herbs from our gar­den and we also catered for the Bathurst Dioce­san Ath­let­ics Car­ni­val not to men­tion var­i­ous do­na­tions that we re­ceived.

The Prin­ci­pal, Mrs Heather Ir­win, is very grate­ful that all the fam­i­lies in this small school al­ways think of oth­ers and their gen­eros­ity is tremen­dous.
