Narrogin Senior High School students handed a $533 cheque over to the Royal Flying Doctor Services in February.

RFDS fundraiser Ann McLeish welcomed the donation from Year 10 students Grace Glynn and Nikota Scholz.

“It’s really great having kids come on board,” Ms McLeish said. “We rely on all the small communities, the planes go out all the time from here; if the town gets behind the RFDS that’d be great.”

Principal Melissa Walker said the money was presented to the RFDS at a school assembly.

“Most of these funds were raised on the school’s open day last year, where the kids ran their own enterprise and the RFDS was their choice of beneficiary,” she said.

“It think the RFDS has touched everyone in rural communities because you never know when you’ll need them.

“(2018) Year 9s were involved with the fundraising, and it was the business enterprise class that raised funds.”
