Tocumwal Public School teachers Kate Gowerty, principal Darren White, Ros Gastin, Laura Williby, Marian Robertson, Nicole Laker and Meg Gillespie joined in the fun of the SRC fundraiser for Give Me 5 For Kids.

Tocumwal Public School students and staff raised $130 for the Goulburn Valley Base Hospital while staying warm from the winter chill last week.

The school’s Student Representative Council coordinated a pyjama day last Thursday to raise money for the June ‘Give Me 5 for Kids’ hospital appeal.

A special assembly was held in the morning and the children all enjoyed getting up on stage in their class groups, grooving to the music, to show off their pyjamas and bandaged bears or other soft toy.

Students and teachers donated a gold coin for the privilege of wearing their PJs to school, and prizes were given for the best dressed.

The total raised by the school exceeded its donation from last year by $8.

The day’s activities also included a mega handball competition in the lunch break.
