Students help boost fundraising for flooded Bundaberg schoolsBy Frances Adcock, Monday April 22, 2013 - 12:06 EST
A Brisbane school is providing a much-needed boost to flood-affected Bundaberg schools in southern Queensland.
About a dozen schools in Bundaberg were inundated by January's floods.
Three months on, Brisbane Grammar School, is still helping out.
Community services coordinator Phillipa Douglas says teachers and students at the school have been collecting stationery, books and art supplies to send to Bundaberg schools.
She says businesses around the area are also getting involved.
"We've had classes raising money and then other businesses matching what they raise so schools can buy sports equipment with it," she said.
Ms Douglas says the response from students wanting to help has been overwhelming.
"It's just been incredibly heart warming," she said.
