George Town Primary School held a Fancy Hat and Crazy Socks Day on Monday to raise money to hold a family picnic at Dart Park.
Year 4 students came up with the idea for the fundraiser.
According to their teacher, Joan Anderson, who helped to organize the event along with teacher Jack Ebanks, students were asked to decorate their own hats and socks, which were judged, and prizes were awarded based on creativity, variety of materials used and uniqueness.
The children raised smiles as well as money when they arrived at school wearing a variety of head gear for the price of $2.
Ms. Anderson said the students were learning new skills to develop their potential by thinking creatively.
Principal Marie Martin said each month a different class will host an event to raise money for activities.
“It brings the children and parents together for fun times,” she said.
