Year 6 students at Empire Bay Public School have unanimously voted to hold a Fiver for a Farmer fundraiser in conjunction with the school’s Father’s Day Breakfast, on Friday, August 31.
“Year 6 has indicated that they would like to hold a fundraiser to support Australian farmers experiencing hardship due to the drought,” said school principal Ms Simone Champion.
“Year 6 is asking the school community to support their fundraiser by donating a $5 note on the day.
“They would like to make it a fun day for the students and would love everyone to get behind their cause by dressing up as a farmer or farm animal on the day. “We hope our community can get behind this wonderful initiative and congratulate Year 6 on their commitment to support the community,” Ms Champion said.
