The students of William G Davis Sr Public School fundraised over $1000 for the En-kata choir in less than 2 weeks. How you ask? The students of the Global Issues Group (GIG) came up with a very clever fundraising campaign: they devised fundraising goals where every student could donate to ultimately see two staff members kiss a live pig in front of the whole school!

*****

All the fundraising goals were met!

For $1000- Mr Ward and Mrs Bell will KISS a real live pig in front of the whole school!
