Pyjama mufti day
Ettalong Public School held a pyjama mufti day on Wednesday, June 1, to raise money for World Vision (Smiles Day), Devil Ark and CanTeen.
The mufti day was an initiative of the School's Student Representative Council and required students to bring in a gold coin donation or an old mobile phone.
Smiles Day (World Vision) is an opportunity to teach children about others living in poverty, according to principal Mr Colin Wallis.
"We have a catalogue from which we can choose gifts to send overseas and make a difference in the lives of communities in crisis," he said.
Devil Ark is a program designed to save the Tasmanian Devil from extinction.
"We are also supporting CanTeen by collecting old mobile phones," he said.
