Kids givelowdownon Easter
IF you thought you knew everything about Easter - then think again.
In a shock revelation, students around the Tweed have discovered the identity of the elusive Easter bunny and why everyone gets Easter eggs.
After modelling colourful Easter hats for an Easter parade at their school on Thursday, students at Kingscliff Public School let slip facts about the animal behind the long holy holiday.
According to the children, the Easter bunny is a white rabbit that lives in a chocolate tree in a suburb of Heaven called Easter World.
He delivers his eggs in a car made of chocolate that looks like a sleigh and keeps melting.
And when he isn't working, he is visiting his mates Santa Claus and the tooth fairy and overseeing the bunnies that make his eggs in a factory.
That lovable Easter bunny gives everyone chocolate Easter eggs to cheer them up about the death of Jesus.
It was obvious the students had given a lot of thought to the holiday, just like their parents had given a lot of support.
An Easter raffle, donated by the local Action Supermarket, raised more than $2000 for the coastal school.
Kingscliff Public fundraising coordinator Jo Mitchell said the money would go to buying sporting equipment and reading materials, and funding covered walkways.
"We were astounded by the response. It was great to see people getting behind the P&C," she said.
"And it was fantastic of Action to donate the Easter eggs for the raffle."
With a good chunk of money raised, perhaps the covered walkways can be finished fast so that the Easter bunny's car doesn't melt quite so quickly.
