St Michael’s School celebrated St Patrick’s Day Monday with students donning their finest green accessories and selling green sweets.

Teacher Louise Driscoll said Year 3 students used the day as a fundraiser by selling ‘lucky leprechaun sprinkles’ to raise money for Caritas Australia’s Project Compassion 2014, which works to build a better world for the poor and oppressed.

‘‘Parents have taken the time to put green ribbons in girls’ hair and find green dress-up items,’’ she said.

‘‘The class also made bunting from maps of Ireland and green shamrocks. We only have one Patrick in the whole school so he is the mascot for the day.’’
