Sweetest of days for young romantics

THE Valentine’s Day cherubs arrived equipped with pretty pink cupcakes with chocolate hearts, red balloons and full of song.

The boys of The Armidale School could not believe their luck.

But there was nothing magical about this visit, it was all in good fun for a very good cause.

The senior students from the New England Girls’ School and PLC Armidale made the visit, not only to pass on the secret admiration of others, but to raise money for victims of the recent Coonabarabran bushfires.
