BOXES are piling high with shopper-dockets as Bundy schools rush to take advantage of the Coles Sport for Schools program before it ends on Sunday.

Norville State School head of curriculum Lynley Debney said the offer, which means parents who do their shopping at Coles earn coupons for sports equipment, was fantastic for schools.

“There would be hundreds if not thousands of dollars in coupons,” she said.

“I was talking to a child who was bringing vouchers in. He brought in $60 worth and is aiming to bring in $100.”
