St Michael’s raises money for good cause

Staff and students from St Michael’s Primary School, Nelson Bay, organised a pie drive and a Wear Your Pyjamas for Farmers day to help raise money for drought-affected farmers.

With many people in the St Michael’s school community having links with members of rural communities in New South Wales – many of whom are doing it tough in the drought conditions - it became clear it was important reach out to help and support the farmers.

Parents and parishioners of the school community bought pies - ranging from beef, chicken and steak vegetable and apple – as well as sausage rolls, lamingtons and caramel slices.

The day proved to be a great success with the school raising over $2,400.

The money will be donated to the Country Women’s Association NSW Disaster Relief Fund. 

“The money we raised can go towards food for their cattle or water for their crops,” said Layla Lewis, Year 2 student from St Michael’s.

“That way they can keep supplying us with food in our supermarkets.”
