Students' farewell to school days

Maintaining the ancient tradition of Carnivale, Mullumbimby High boys donned masks and made mischief in celebration of the last day of their life as school students, hurling water bombs at luckless motorists, reporters and passersby alike early last Wednesday morning. The girls (left) looked gorgeous in great costumes and wide smiles, rattling the tins to collect for the orang-utans of Borneo and the Byron Bay Breast Cancer Support Group, under the protective eyes of teachers volunteering their time. “We love these kids,” explained head of science Irene Dawson, “so we've got to look after them.”

All up, $3880 was raised for the worthy causes.
