Moree Secondary College staff dress up for Book Week

MOREE Secondary College celebrated Book Week recently, concluding with a staff dress-up day last Friday, August 24. 

All staff members got into the spirit and impressed and surprised the students with their amazing themed outfits.

During the week there were “Guess the Teacher” and the “Great Book Hunt” competition. 

The Book Week winners are:

Iky Davis, Mackayla Ward-Hodges, Hugh Ross, Liam Baxter-Tomkins, Wendy Priestley, Madi Suttie, Eliza Jackson, Millie Hobday, Reagan May, Vincent Coventry, Ben Williams, Elka Devney and Davin Jackson.  

The winners will go to Wise Words Book Shop today, August 31 to select the book of their choice. 

Meanwhile, a bit further east, the kids at Warialda High School on Thursday got together to help raise money for drought relief.

Student Bec Boland, whose family works on the land, said she wanted to help out in some way.

So, along with the help of school principal, Mrs Young, Bec encouraged all students to turn up for school today dressed as farmers.

“I decided that I wanted to show my support for the struggling farmers by organising a day at school to raise money for the charity, Buy a Bale,” Bec said.

“I organised with Mrs Young that we get students to come to school dressed as a farmer and make a gold-coin donation.

“At lunch-time students were able to purchase something to eat at a sausage sizzle and get a soft-drink for just $5, which also went to Buy a Bale.

“As our school is very farm-based we were all excited to dress up as farmers and raise as much money as we could for this serious cause,” Bec said.

About 100 students ranging in ages from 13 to 18 got involved and helped raise some much-needed funds for the Buy a Bale scheme.
