Carnivale helps those in need

Bonnyrigg High School’s annual Carnivale took on extra significance this year with the school raising money to help farmers suffering due to the drought.

The Multicultural Day, held last Wednesday, raised $3940 and in the process showcased the plethora of cultures at the school.

The day started with a traditional smoking ceremony and featured range of performances including the Greek and Islander dancing groups.

There were also food trucks, book and toy stalls, carnival games and a photobooth. 

Students could also get a henna tattoo, buya boomerang fridge magnet and make a splash at the dunk tank to aid those who are in need.

The money raised will go the farmers’ appeal for people affected from their sister school, Uralla High School.
