Teachers tortured to keep wheels turning
MANY a school student has day dreamed of torturing their teacher, but for Proserpine State High School that dream became reality.
Ten teachers put their hand up for the hardship, getting slimed, covered in syrup or even challenged to eat an eye-watering concoction.
Fits of laughers echoed across the schools grounds as the teachers endured their punishment, meted out by a student chosen at random.
It wasn't just about having a good laugh at the teachers' expense however, with nearly $1000 raised for Proserpine Meals on Wheels.
Community Committee president Natalie Cowan explained how it all began.
"When it first started they were looking for a charity for it to go to and we found that our local Meals on Wheels hadn't had a generous donation in about five years," she said.
"So since then all our donations have been going to them to keep it going.
"This year we raised $914, which beat last year's $550.
"That will most likely go to them purchasing a new food truck so they can transport refrigerated goods."
Natalie said Meals on Wheels was an important community service and one they were proud to support.
"They provide meals for the sick, the elderly and the disabled," she said.
"We all think that's a really valuable service to have in our community."
