Community still behind DSS

TWO community groups presented Dalby State School with money they had raised for them at a special ceremony, after the school was tragically devastated by fire three weeks ago.

Dalby South deputy principal Kate Paynter said her school raised just over $2000, and was looking forward to handing over the cheque.

"The kids were really excited to go over there and present them with what we had raised,” Ms Paynter said.

"It was a nice symbolic gesture.”

It was Dalby South School that initially came up with the idea of wearing blue for DSS, and Ms Paynter said they were amazed by how quickly the small idea had travelled.

"We were thrilled with how everyone from our school got behind it, and it just spread so quickly throughout the town and even the state.”

Dalby Rural Supplies co-owners Andrew Johnston and John Cullen also handed over a cheque worth $5000 to the school.
