TEACHERS from Lesmurdie Primary School will demonstrate true sportsmanship tomorrow when they put on a brave face at the dunk tank.

Leading the queue for the fundraising soak will be school principal Richie Griffiths.

“As an incentive, I’ve promised the students I will get into the dunk tank; we’ll see who has the best arm and how quickly I get wet!” he said.

The family fun day is a calendar highlight for students and this year the P&C is raising funds for items on the school’s wish list.

More than $26,000 was raised at the last fun day two years ago and organisers anticipate setting a new record.

Among the attractions will be laser tag, a vintage car display, a rope bridge, bungee trampolining, a climbing wall and games to challenge co-ordination.

Younger children will enjoy the teddy tombola and there will be plants for gardeners, new and second-hand books, toys and clothes, and a silent auction.

Along with the stalls will be the usual fairground foods, sweet treats and show bags topped off with live music and displays by local sport and fitness groups.
