Small school punches above weight to raise money for drought appeal

Bellbrook Public School has punched above its weight to play its part in contributing to the drought relief by raising $350 with the support of the local community.

The Small School held a Dress Like A Farmer Day and were asked to bring along a gold coin donation.

The school, which has 17 students and four staff at school on the day, were surprised they were able to raise such a large amount.

The students and staff walked around the community and received more generous donations while raising awareness of the drought and the struggling families.

The students enjoyed dressing up and were very creative, the school even had Daisy our mascot cow join the walk around the streets.

The Bellbrook Public School’s Student Representative Council decided to help farmers after watching all the stories in the media. 

They wanted to show their support to the country kids experiencing drought and have been studying health and well-being in PDHPE.
