Tinsel, streamers and orangutans were some of the many themes spotted on Harvey Primary School students’ scooters last Thursday as they took part in their first Scootathon.

Students from kindy through to Year 6 pimped up their scooters for the fundraiser.

To take part in the Scootathon, each student had to collect a minimum of $10 sponsorship.

Harvey Primary School P&C president Jon Adams said this was a great way for the students to learn the value of money.

“The idea came from the principal who had run it at the previous school he was at,” he said.

“All of the money raised will go towards installing a nature play and sensory garden here at the school.

“It is important for the kids to learn how to provide for their own school, and this was a great way to teach them this.”

In total, the students raised more than $7000 which will go towards building an outdoor garden.
