Teachers armed with slime blasters sought revenge on their students who run amok through a deluge of vibrant slime and fun obstacles.
Already the event has raised more than $29,000 towards the school’s $40,000 goal.
Principal Adam Brandt said, “These events have become an invaluable part of the school calendar that students, teachers and P&Cs look forward to each year.”
“It’s time away from the desk, to refresh, reset and make happy memories with friends,” said the Worongary State School Principal.
School Captain Sienna Dunning said, “It’s really cool to have a Principle that’s come up with such a great idea.”
“It’s going to be fun to go out there and have fun… I’m really looking forward to it,” said School Captain Jett McDonald.
The team behind this slime-tastic event, Australian Fundraising, aim to simplify school fundraising by taking the stress out of organising and putting the fun in fundraising.
Australian Fundraising General Manager, Robert Gaydon said, “with so many demands on teachers and parents, organising school events can be a real headache. Booking rides and different vendors can be a logistical nightmare and often all that work doesn’t pay off.”
“Fundraisers like Slime Spectacular make planning simple so that everyone can let their hair down and enjoy the day,” Mr Gaydon said.
