Bandage maker aids school's sport and garden programs

SANDY Strait State School will have a new and improved community garden and a pile of sports equipment after winning $5000 from bandage company Elastoplast.

School principal Sharon McMorrow said it was a great boost for the school.

"I'm very very happy," she said.

"$5000 is a lot for a school community like ours."

The Elastoplast promotion focused on getting kids outside and being active.

Ms McMorrow said the school will split the money between an environmental program and buying sports equipment.

A school parent entered the competition and part of the prize was $5000 to go to a sporting organisation - but Elastoplast agreed to give it to a school.
