Yokine PS overrun by pirates with good intentions on Pirate Day Friday

YOKINE Primary School was seized by a swarm of small pirates this month, but rather than plunder the place, these pint-size privateers raised more than $400 for charity.

Pirate Day is an annual event at Yokine Primary and raises funds for childhood cancer research.

The job of counting donations raised by more than 300 students has been finished and the school was pleased to announce more than $400 was raised.

Pirate Day Friday, a collaboration between the Kids Cancer Project and The Adventurers, was held on June 9 this year.

The event demonstrates Yokine Primary School’s community spirit in raising awareness and support for a worthy cause.

Yokine Primary School has been serving the community for more than 50 years.
