Year 10 students at Esperance Anglican Community School are hard at work fundraising and organising for McHappy Day.
McHappy Day will be held at McDonalds on Saturday, November 17, with $2 from each Big Mac sold going to the Ronald McDonald House Charity.
The class of Big Picture students are coordinating the day for the first time and have chosen the theme of ‘sports’.
The day will feature raffles, prizes and activities organised by the students.
There will also be a sports themed mural which community members are invited to make a contribution to.
Year 10 student Luke said an excursion to McDonalds Esperance prompted the class to take over organising the event from the McDonalds Esperance staff.
“We learnt about how to run the event and how they manage a franchise,” he said.
The class also aim to get Anglican School principal Kerr Fulton-Peebles in the store, selling food, to help boost fundraising.
The students have received sponsorship support from local businesses Swans Vets, Harris Dental, Southern Suspension & 4WD Centre and McCreeds Jewellers.
