Darnum Primary School combined national bandanna day with its annual writer’s café recently.
Students had spent the year working on a variety of writing topics, themes and stories before inviting guests including parents, grandparents and other relatives to share their work.
Guests shared a Devonshire tea with students reading their stories, and those of other students, to their relatives.
The school also supported national bandanna day, with bandannas available for students to buy for $5.
National bandanna day is the major fundraising and awareness campaign for CanTeen Australia. Held on the last Friday in October, the powerful campaign has generated more than $30 million to support young people affected by cancer.
