My kids' school (not in Australia) P&C is running a fundraising movie night to raise money for bushfire re recovery. I've been tasked with choosing an Australian movie with appeal to young kids (mostly primary).

I've drawn a complete blank... The only thing I can think of is Babe.

Any other ideas?

More a family movie rather than just kids - but what about 'Oddball'?

One vote for Storm Boy (the recent remake). My primary aged kids cried but it was ultimately uplifting and lovely.

Paper Planes

These two. Both have been screened at my DD's primary school for movie nights and the children loved them. After Paper Planes so many children started making their own paper planes for months afterwards and had so much fun with it.

Potentially 4 to 18, but the last movie night we had was a mix of mostly primary aged kids.

I don't suppose anyone knows the copyright issues that might exist.

In terms of age... We could limit to certain year groups as we have to cap the numbers for the event anyway.

Paper planes is a winner with the 5yo, 9yo and 11 yo in my family.

Oddball was quite the hit with my 5 year old.

Blknky bill was good as well.

Shame you couldnt show episodes of Bluey - as much as that show grates on me, its very aussie.
