Mega fundraiser for drought relief
An approach from school parent Sarah Hoeksema to school principal Paula Johnston around a farmer dress up day for the cause exploded into a mega fundraiser for the Buy a Bale relief fund.
The junior school council got behind the cause, with the school arranging a mega raffle in conjunction with its dress up day.
Students dressed as a farmer for a gold coin donation, with the junior school council running a sausage sizzle and activities including gumboot throwing, making scarecrows, the Nutbush and egg and spoon and sack races.
A petting zoo, cows from the farm and whip cracking demonstration added to the entertainment.
The fundraiser had helped the students gain an understanding of the impacts of drought and the impact it has on not just farmers, but the whole community.
