The St Michael’s School St Vincent de Paul Winter Appeal is one of the most important days on the school’s calendar, according to principal Bernadette Murphy.

Students, teachers and parents dressed in their favourite pyjamas on Friday to support the cause, which calls on people to donate goods and money to help those in need this winter.

Mrs Murphy said the day was well supported with the school receiving ‘‘basket loads’’ of donations as well as cash.

Friday’s PJ day was kicked off with the traditional breakfast provided by Vinnies Reconnect staff, followed by a school assembly.

‘‘The day really highlights the need to be mindful of the marginalised in our community,’’ Mrs Murphy said.

‘‘We always get great support from the school community.’’
