SUPERMAN, Batman and Wonder Woman made their way to Warrnambool Primary School to help raise money for muscular dystrophy.
The children of all ages dressed up last week as superheroes with some pupils emulating their everyday heroes including police and emergency service personnel.
Superhero day for muscular dystrophy is a new fund-raiser which encourages people to discover their super powers and go to kinder, daycare, school or work as their favourite superhero.
Warrnambool Primary School grade six team leader Lynne Nelson said the children had been very creative with the event well supported.
She said the school had previously had a child with muscular dystrophy and it was likely there would be more children attending in the future.
She said everyone in the school community thought it was a great cause to support.
Muscular dystrophy affects one in 1000 people in Australia and is a condition which gradually wastes all muscles and forces the permanent use of an electric wheelchair.
The fund-raiser was initiated by an Australian family which has a 10-year-old child with Duchenne muscular dystrophy and has the aim of encouraging children to celebrate their strengths in all its different forms.
