A PRIMARY school has added its support to the ongoing efforts in Australia after the devastating bushfires.

Thornton-le-Dale Primary School raised £1,215 during an Australia Day, dedicated to the traditions and wildlife of the country.

Pupils, alongside teacher Camarah Mosey, organised a series of Australian-themed games, a bake sale and each class took part in a sponsored hop.

“We want to thank all the parents and children from the school, who supported the event by baking and donating,” said Ms Mosey, who organised fundraiser.
