St Patrick's students wear onesies to support charity

The grounds at St Patrick's Primary School were a sea of colour on Friday, when students attended school in their onesies.

The pyjama onesies worn by the students, together with one teacher, Melissa Bonney, came in all shapes, colours and sizes. There were giraffes, zebras, cats, lions, mice and rabbits, along with patterned onesies in a variety of colours.

Students and teachers adopted the idea to highlight St Vincent de Paul's winter appeal, with a gold coin donation being requested to raise funds for the appeal.

To cap off the successful day, St Patrick's Primary School teachers conducted a movie night for all students in the school hall. Teachers looked after the students for the evening, allowing their parents some time out.

"It's all about paying afford, giving something back to the parents of our students," principal Kate Harney said.

"We looked after the children and gave them a movie in their onesies, giving their parents an opportunity to either go out, or just enjoy some time to themselves."
