HOLY Family School students have done their bit to bring some relief to drought-hit farmers.
Between the school's recent biennial art show and year five students' Return and Earn initiative, $435 has been raised for Buy a Bale, which provides hay for struggling farmers.
Principal Kevin Arrow said the gold coin entry for the art show - which is held every two years - raised $350 for Buy a Bale.
At the same time, he said, a group of year five boys, led by student Charlie Martin, have been collecting drink containers at the school to be recycled through the Return and Earn scheme.
"They did that off their own bat," he said.
"There are quite a few drink containers around the school and they had a system to collect them."
Having collected them over a number of months, they managed to raise $85 for Buy a Bale.
Mr Arrow said the Return and Earn fundraiser fit in well with Holy Family's focus on the environment.
"The school tries to promote an understanding of the environment, sustainability and the importance of recycling," he said.
He said both fundraisers also tied in well with Holy Family's focus on giving students an awareness of the drought and farmers' plight.
