Terrigal Public School has donated $2,735 to Milton Public School on the NSW South Coast.
The funds were raised through the school’s end of Term 2 Crazy Hair Day to support Milton PS with its bushfire recovery effort, after the town Milton was ravaged in the Black Summer Bushfires earlier this year.
Terrigal Public School staff also contributed to the donation, providing a $750 boost.
Terrigal’s Principal, Michael Burgess, said the funds would allow Milton PS to stimulate their township’s economy by spending locally.
“Milton PS will be able to spend the money within the town to help them continue with their recovery from the devastating bushfires.
“At the same time our staff donation allowed Milton PS staff to have coffee and chocolates on the first day back this term.
“They spent the money in town to support local businesses.
“I also know some of our families visited Milton during the holidays, either to stay or call in on their way through.
“Thank you to those families for supporting Milton,” Burgess said.
