The grounds of Dubbo South Public School were awash with the colour pink on Friday and it was all for a very good cause.
Staff and students held a Pink Stumps Day to raise money for the McGrath Foundation's Breast Care Nurses.
McGrath Breast Care Nurses help individuals and their families experiencing breast cancer by providing physical, psychological and emotional support, for free.
The whole school come down to watch a game of cricket that morning between teacher and students, with 10 a side.
The school has held a Pink Stumps Day for many years and in the past local cricketers have even made an appearance to impart their wisdom at the games.

Students wore pink and donated a gold coin, while teachers paid a minimum of $10.
The School's sports co-ordinator Tim Long said it was important to have the entire school come down to watch, especially the infant students, to see what they can inspire to when they are in Years 5 and 6.
But it was also important to get behind such a good cause, Mr Long said.
"For me it's very important to fundraise and help the McGrath Foundation... we need to get more nursing staff in hospitals to support women and men who have breast cancer."
Mr Long said there are a lot of young keen cricketers at Dubbo South Public School who watch the pink test match on television every year.
"So to have the same (competition at the school) and raise money is a good experience for them," he said.
