BANKS PS ran two major events in the past two weeks, starting last week with Superhero Day.
The students were asked to come to school dressed in their favourite superhero outfit, with money raised on the day sent to a company which manufactures superhero shirts for sick children in hospital.
These shirts are especially designed and manufactured to allow easy access to veins for administration of treatment drugs and blood,
enabling the children being treated to be less disturbed during either process.
The school raised $1,160.00 on the day and spokesperson Kim Dunn praised the children involved on the day, and teacher Ms Hiser-Smith for having the great idea.
Banks PS then held a colour run this week, as a fund-raiser for the P&C.
“After two years where schools were not able to do such activities, it was fun had by all,” said Kim.
The money raised from the Colour Run will go towards improvements within the school and staff expressed their thanks to the P&C for their time and effort putting the event together, and Miss Snape for her organising of all the notes and the planning of the course.
