Darnall Primary breaks their donation record

The Grade 5's of Darnall primary school who collected the most food for the SPCA.

Spurred on by their headmaster, Eugene Nel, the classes at Darnall Primary School have a competition among themselves to collect the most dog and cat food for the SPCA.

This year they have broken their own record by collecting a total of 1310kg of food for the SPCA, beating their previous record of just over a thousand.

Headmaster Eugene Nel said he was proud of his pupils.

“We really are a small school with a big heart,” said Nel.

This year the Grade 5’s won the competition, collecting the most food, while young Layla Slatter won the individual competition by collecting a whopping 75kgs – more than she herself weighs!

This little lady, Layla Slatter, collected the most food individually – a total of 75kgs – more than her own body weight.

“We are so grateful to Darnall Primary for this amazing effort, donations like these are what allow the SPCA to continue doing the good work we do for animals on the Dolphin Coast,” said Dolphin SPCA’s Debbie Filmalter.

“To all the pupils, teachers and parents, and of course Mr Nel, we thank you for your huge generosity in supporting the SPCA and its mission to stop cruelty in our areas.”
