Jeans for Genes at CHS

Condobolin High School students participated in Jeans for Genes day last week.

Condobolin High School students had the chance last week to strut their stuff in stylish jeans and raise money for research into genetic disorders for the annual Jeans for Genes day.

Jeans for Genes Day is a major fundraiser for the Children’s Medical Research Institute and is held annually on the first Friday in August.

Students donated a gold coin each in support of the cause and managed to raise a grand total of $151.80.

Teacher Gillian McMillan said she was impressed with the students’ efforts.

“The kids really care about it,” she said.

“They’ve been asking questions and quite a few kids here have family with genetic disorders.

“Considering we’re only a small school I think we’ve done well to raise that amount of money.”
