MURRAMI Public School was a flurry of activity last week when students came to school with all kinds of wacky hair styles, while at the same time, putting their best skipping skills into practice.
Students and staff raised funds as part of a crazy hair day for Cystic Fibrosis NSW, as well as participating in Jump Rope for Heart.
As well as crazy hair styles, students dressed in casual clothes to enjoy what was the last day of the school term.
However, principal Duncan Adams said there was a serious tone behind the day.
"Students have been learning all about CF and how it affects the lungs, bodies and quality of life," Mr Adams said.
"They've been doing research using technology into CF so it puts what we are doing today into context."
Three students from Murrami Public attended the Young Leaders Conference this year where one of the guest speakers at the event was Coen Ashton, who has CF.
Coen required a double lung transplant and after recovering from the operation took to a jet ski to travel the length of the Murray River to raise awareness of the issue.
Students at Murrami Public were shown a Behind the News clip about Coen and his feats to put a face to why they were fund-raising.
"When we heard him speak in Sydney we thought he was an absolute inspiration," Mr Adams said.
"Again, it puts into context what they are learning.
"The students realise what a worthy cause it is that they are supporting."
Students also spent the day perfecting their skipping skills, including on their own, in pairs and as a relay.
"It's a healthy way to support a good cause," Mr Adams said.
"The kids really love it, so it works well.
"We really try to incorporate a lesson behind everything we do, so with this one it was all about teaching the students about healthy bodies and exercise."
