Riverside PS raises funds for struggling farmers

RIVERSIDE Primary School’s year one students performed an emotional tribute to local farmers.

The students raised more than $1000 for them to receive hay for their livestock, water, and food hampers during their school assembly.

Students performed a song The Trucks Came Through written by Lee Kernaghan, which is dedicated to Australia’s farmers.

The students also organised a Flanno’s For Farmers Day to link in with their assembly, inviting the whole school to wear a flanno’ top for the day and donate a gold coin to support struggling farmers through the Buy A Bale Foundation.

Riverside Primary School Year 1 teacher Tamara Broadbent was proud of the students and said there were a lot of people who deserved to be thanked for the effort.

“On behalf of the students, we would like to say a huge thank you to our local Riverside community for their support and the Buy A Bale Foundation for their amazing work in helping our Australian farmers who are doing it tough with the drought and weather conditions,” she said.
