As you are aware many parts of Australia are in severe drought. Here at St James we would like to help support our drought affected farmers and rural communities. This drought is real, and it is having a major impact that is being felt far beyond the farm gates.
Across Australia there are thousands of farmers who need our help. Australian farmers are the backbone of our country. For hundreds of years they have fed us all. Australian farmers are some of the most productive in the world in some of the toughest and most arid environment. Now they need our support to keep their livestock alive and the food in our and their stomachs.
On Tuesday the 14th August we are hosting a fundraiser 'The St James Farmers Day.'The school community is invited to come along dressed as a farmer, cowboy/cowgirl or a farm animal/plant and join us in a rain dance. Please bring a gold coin to show your support for our drought appeal.

You can help by donating to buy a bale of hay, or buy a litre of diesel or a gift card for groceries or life essentials. These campaigns are providing meaningful support for farmers by delivering hay and other essential items to farmers who have no feed left for their livestock.
