Principal John Nowicki said students ran the stalls at the October 24 flea market, after donating second-hand toys, trinkets and other items.

With nothing priced over $2, Mr Nowicki said it brought out the students’ entrepreneurial skills.

‘We raised $2500 ” we even had kids buying their own stuff back,’ he said.

‘It flowed into our open night and we had a raffle donated by businesses in the local community.’

Mr Nowicki said the proceeds would help the school’s kitchen garden program, with a motto of ‘grow, eat, create’.

‘Every class has its own garden and we use those ingredients every Thursday in cooking,’ he said.

‘The funds go towards all the cooking utensils.’
