Bernardi inspired donations smash goal

More than $160,000 has been raised by a school in Adelaide's south after Australian Conservative Senator Cory Bernardi tweeted its fundraising campaign was "absurd gender morphing".

Craigburn primary school principal Paul Luke says the school had set out to raise $900 for girls in Africa by allowing students, both male and female, to come wearing a dress for one day, but after Senator Bernardi's public criticisms of the move the school had raised $162,000 as of Friday morning.

Mr Luke said the feedback of the school's decision had been positive and the publicity should focus on the cause of supporting the education of girls in Africa not gender issues.
