Creative hats and decorated teachers raised money for the Cancer Society at a Hawke's Bay school.
Mahora School students and staff completed the creative competitions to raise money for the charity as part of Daffodil Day.
Principal Rohan Pearse said the hat competition also promoted sun safety.
"Mahora School is right behind the Cancer Society in raising money for Cancer Support in conjunction with Daffodil Day," he said. "Yet another fun day was held at school with two competitions running. The first was a creative hat competition which fits nicely with sun protection.
"Children had fun creating awesome hats," Mr Pearse said.
The second competition was staff "yellowing" themselves.
Local Cancer Society manager Trudy Kirk visited the school to judge the competitions and receive the money kindly donated by the community.
"Its great to see children developing an awareness for the need to support agencies like the cancer society," she said.
