Mt Lockyer Primary School students dressed in their best farming attire on Monday to raise money for drought-stricken farmers in WA.

Fiva for a Farma was an idea proposed by a parent and taken on-board by the school to raise donations for drought relief.

Coming to school dressed in their jeans, flannel shirts and cowboy hats, students helped raise $1575.

Teacher Chelsea Roberts said it was a great opportunity for the students.

“It’s a great fundraiser and a bit of fun for the kids to be involved in, and a great opportunity for these kids to see what’s happening in their country,” she said.
