IF you thought you were seeing green at Bogangar Public School today, it wasn't through jealousy.

Despite the fact that the lovely new school is something to be envied, the students were "all green" for another reason.

They were supporting the Cabarita Beach - Pottsville Beach Lions Club Greenback Fishing Competition.

"The Lions Club has done so much for us," principal Cath Lalor said.

"The kids all dressed in green, some with green hair and the canteen made green jelly, pancakes, spinach pies and green cookies and cupcakes to promote what is one of the biggest festivals in the area," she said.

P and C president Rachel O'Connor said students had the chance to buy a raffle ticket in the competition.

"They are getting the chance to win some of the big prizes, like a boat," she said.

"Having a green day is our way of showing support and having a lot of fun at the same time."

Mia Smith from Year 3 said she loves the colour green.

While fellow student Zoey O'Connor even dyed her hair green.

"I like to get in the mood for a good cause," she said.

"And it's a lot of fun."

The fishing competition takes place at Pandanas Pde, Cabarita Beach on June 9 and 10.
