Students put on a morning tea feast

THE quantity of food competed with the amount of generosity and the size of smiles at Ipswich State High Year 12's Biggest Morning Tea on Thursday.

Teigan Hogbin is part of the leadership team that hosted the event.

"It's very special to people and I thought we could raise some money to donate to the cancer council," she said.

"It's been a bit of an effort but I'm so glad it's done and it's for a good cause.

"I had a lot of support from our leadership group. I went out and got sponsors, students brought food and we baked at school."

She said the 180 Year 12 students donated $2 each, the teachers put in the money from their morning tea and Mayor Paul Pisasale gave $200.
