IT WASN’T so much an ice bucket challenge as an ice tractor
IT WASN'T so much an ice bucket challenge as an ice tractor challenge for St Mary's Catholic College principal Aaron Beach.
Having been challenged by St Mary's Primary School to participate in the challenge and raise money for motor neurone disease, the event was planned for Mr Beach's 40th birthday last week.
Assistant principal Scott Thomson said the school's house captains got in on the challenge and, with the help of the other students, raised $750.
"We ran a fundraising day where we collected coins, laying them out on the ground, and the team with the longest line got to choose the students who would tip the buckets," he said.
"There was a great community effort."
Seven of the eight house captains took the icy challenge, along with eight staff and Mr Thomson.
However, the main attraction was Mr Beach, who sat under the scoop of a tractor and received a very cold dunking.
The school has now challenged the Lismore Catholic Schools office to raise money.
