James Sheahan Catholic High School students held a fundraiser on Wednesday to help support people in Nagaland in India.
Religious education coordinator Michael Pastoorssaid thestudents spent time planning stalls that would make connections between the school values, the Bathurst Diocese's mission appeal, mercy values, spiritual works of mercy and the work of Catholic Mission in Nagaland.
Through their market stalls the year eight students managed to raise more than $2956.
The money will be given to the Catholic Mission to maintain the Eden Gardens Children's Home, a place where 250 children from remote and disadvantaged backgrounds are given access to education, as well as a safe home.
The money will also go towards providing schooling and clean drinking water for the community.
