Alma Public School has held a Big Morning Tea in honour of one of their teachers who recently passed away from pancreatic cancer.

The school hosted the tea yesterday for the public and school students.

Teacher Allan Johnston said they held the event for teacher Maree Kester who died this year.

Mr Johnston said the Mrs Kester's death was "very sudden and she will be very, very missed".

She had worked at Alma since 2004 and was an assistant principal.

Mr Johnston said the school was hoping to raise $250 from the day but in the end made $740.

Staff and local businesses provided food which included cakes, biscuits, slices and milkshakes. 

Funds raised from holding Australia's Biggest Morning Tea go towards the Cancer Council's work in research, prevention, information and support.
