Padthaway Primary School's 'Crazy Day'

Students from Padthaway Primary School traded neat and combed hair, for something a little bit more "crazy", as they hosted their 'Crazy Day' fundraiser on Tuesday.

No one hairstyle was the same, with many of the students using various techniques to try and outdo their classmates.

Along with having crazy hair, many of the students were encouraged to partner that with even crazier clothes.

The school's SRC members cooked a barbecue lunch and served 'spider' drinks on the day. They also made delicious biscuits and decorated them with crazy toppings.

Each term, the SRC host a 'tuck day' to raise money for different causes. In Term 1, the SRC hosted Pancake Day cooking over 150 pancakes for the school and community members.

Padthaway Primary School principal Olivia English said the Student Representative Council is an incredibly important part of the school.

"The Student Representative Council is very important at Padthaway Primary School. The students use this as a tool for discussing their thoughts and concerns in an open forum," Mrs English said.

"Class representatives are voted by the students in each class and much thought and consideration goes into this voting to ensure the best representatives for the year.

"SRC members demonstrate our whole school values 'Be Respectful, Act Responsibly and Strive for Excellence' at all times."

Mrs English also praised the efforts of the SRC, who organised another successful event.

"The SRC members were very organised on Crazy Day serving 65 students and all the staff," Mrs English said.

"I am so impressed by the leadership shown by all of our SRC members and the guidance the upper primary executive committee showed to our younger SRC members.

"The planning and organisation that went into the day demonstrates the skills and capabilities that students learn at the school from a young age."

SRC president Bailey Turner said the event was "very well prepared", with all of the members leading by example.

"The day was great with the SRC being very well prepared leading to a fantastic day. All of the SRC members were leading by example and being really responsible, which helped make the day run smoothly," Bailey said.

"In total, we raised over $250 which could potentially go towards sports equipment or IT. We will decide what the money goes towards at our next meeting."
