AFTER role-playing their own cafe, Chinchilla Community Kindergarten students decided they wanted the next logical step was to open a real one.

So, being the enterprising young sorts who are all about actions rather than words, they did.

The very eager kindy students put on their chef hats and waiters' aprons and held a real-life Kindy Cafe at the kindergarten, all to raise funds for charity on Wednesday, October 12.

The kindy children worked tirelessly over the week leading up to event preparing for the big morning.

They brainstormed and located what they needed to set up a real life cafe, created table decorations and menus and baked up a storm.

The children invited their parents and siblings to come along to experience a morning of delicious food and great service and that's exactly what was delivered.

Kindy parents came armed with their $1 coins and purchased some delicious food items and enjoyed being waited on by their children. Food items such as quiches and vanilla cupcakes were cafe favourites.

The morning's food sales and generous family donations raised a total of $120.50.

Chinchilla's Drought Angels was voted by the kindy children and staff as the charity to which the donation should go to.

Nicki Stansbie from Drought Angels visited the kindergarten to receive the donation and was very appreciative of the kindy students' hard work and kind donation.
