STUDENTS at St Mary's Catholic Primary School, in Maryborough, have dressed up and dished out for a good cause.

Year 6 students raised money for Catholic Mission by making a gold coin donation to dress in sports team outfits, raffling sport equipment and selling tasty treats.

The charity is an aid organisation that helps people who live in desperate conditions in more than 160 countries around the world.

Teacher Tim Morgan said the students acted responsibly and were helpful in organising the event.

He said they hoped money raised could go to the mission's Jamaica project, to help beat violence, crime and gangs in the troubled nation.

Mr Morgan said fundraising helped students be valuable members of the community and learn concern for others.
