Kialla Central Primary School students with their special The Cat in the Hat hats created for Education Week.


Kialla Central Primary school was a sea of red-and-white stripes as students donned giant hats for a morning tea on Thursday.

The hats — many of which were bigger than some students — formed part of each child’s attire for a special morning tea to raise money for the Cancer Council.

The children also invited their parents to the special event.

House captain and junior school president Brodie Powell said students paid a gold coin donation for their The Cat in the Hat-themed morning tea.

‘‘We wore them to the Biggest Morning Tea to raise money for the cancer fundraiser that we held at recess today,’’ he said.

‘‘We got a Milo and had some biscuits.’’

School captains Kasey Ryan and Lachlan McNair said the hats were created as part of Education Week, which finishes today.

Students at Kialla Central focused their studies and activities on Dr Seuss’ iconic books, including making the giant The Cat in the Hat-themed hats.

Kasey said it took between one and two hours to make the hats during class.

‘‘This week the grade 4, 5, and 6s have also been making our own Dr Seuss book and reading them to our buddies,’’ Lachlan said.
