Embracing the ‘farm’ theme, the students dressed in costumes and contributed a gold coin donation to help raise funds for Rural Aid, to purchase large rolls of hay for Australian farmers affected by drought.
The school’s Nichelle Dodd said children also donated extra money for a sausage sizzle, adding to the impressive final total.
“We are proud to announce that Cowaramup Primary School students raised $1,500 which is enough money to purchase 150 rolls of hay for our farmers in need,” she said.
“Huge thanks to Margaret River Woolworths for their donation of sausages, buns and sauce, and to Riverfresh IGA for their donation of sausages.
“These kind donations mean that 100 per cent of the money raised will go directly to the farmers.”
