A GROUP of Mindarie Primary School teachers and a parent are preparing to scale Perth’s tallest building to raise money for children with a disability.

Teachers Lee Berry, Dustin Burns, Megan Clark, Simone Gates, Andrew Gould and Hanusia Szczygiel and parent Jessica Evans will abseil 220m down the Central Park office tower this Sunday as part of the Central Park Plunge.

They hope to raise $7000 for Kids’ Camps, which runs camps for children and young people with a disability.

Ms Szczygiel said she and four other staff took part in the event last year, raising more than $5500 for the organisation.

“I had so much fun last year that I wanted to do it again once more,” she said.

“To help us raise the money our school hosted a superhero day last term and a pyjama day this term.”
