Brant's answer is blowing in the wind

IF you find a deflated balloon on the ground, think twice before you throw it out.

It could help Brant Clanfield win a prize as part of a fundraiser for the Bluff State School P&C.

Last week the school sold balloons to students and family members for $1 each to raise money for the school.

More than 400 helium-filled balloons were released with student names and the school phone number attached to see how far they would travel.

The school is encouraging everyone to ring the number if a balloon is found.

Acting principal Craig Hazen said he hoped the balloons would be posted back to the school with the location of where they landed.

“As people mail the tags back to the school we will be able to track whose balloons travelled the furthest,” he said.

Brant's mother Kyleigh yesterday said she and her two children released five balloons each and were excited to see where their balloons would end up.

“It was a good community day and the kids are excited to see the results,” she said.

The school is calling on anyone who finds a balloon to call the school so they can track the distance of the balloon.

Mr Hazen said various prizes would be given to students for balloons that travelled the longest distance.

If you find a balloon call the Bluff State School on 4982 9167 or post the balloon and attached tag to Bluff State School, Main Street, Bluff, 4702.
