STUDENTS at Assumption College weren't complaining about their lunches yesterday as they devoured 63 pizzas and 300 soft drinks - all in the name of fundraising.

Domino's donated the car-load of pizzas and the drinks were donated by Supa IGA Warwick, with all proceeds going to Montrose Association, which cares for children with disabilities.

Organiser and teacher Kristy Liesegang said while she had a personal connection with the organisation, the students were just as keen to show their support.

"The aim is to be able to raise something, anything," Miss Liesegang said.

"We have some students here supported by the Montrose Association, so it's about helping children here too."

Year 9 student Deanna Kelly said she felt she was helping a good cause.

"You feel proactive and like you're helping," Deanna said.

The students each gave $5 to the cause, and got a delicious lunch in return.

Miss Liesegang will also take part in the Montrose Association Walk With Me fun run in Brisbane next month.
