“Buy a Bale” day for the farmers

Thursday 20 September 2018
All day


As many of us know, NSW is in deep drought and some of the hardest working Aussies are having a pretty tough time at the moment. The current drought is said to be the worst in 400 years and is taking a huge toll on our farmers.

Lake Heights is helping to raise money for the Buy-a-Bale organisation which provides support to farmers by delivering hay and other essential items to those who have no feed left for their cattle.

On Thursday 20 September, students are asked to come dressed as farmers and donate a gold coin (or a couple if you can spare it). Join us from 9am for a bit of whole-school bootscooting to start our day.

We’ll also be holding a cake stall, with cakes starting at $1. Donations of cake will be gratefully received by our P&C mums. Please drop them off to the kitchen on the day.

Food and Toiletries Drive

In the lead up to 20 September, the school is also accepting donations of food and toiletries in support of the work being done by the “Doing It For Our Farmers” organisation.

Please send in any canned, packaged foods and toiletries such as those listed below to the kitchen between now and 20 September.


The last time we supported our farmers was back in 2014. View the news story below.
