Where possible as a school we try to support a variety of awareness days and weeks. From Gumboot Friday to Loud Shirt Day. Our tamariki love a good excuse to dress up and raise money for fantastic causes.
PINK SHIRT DAY
Wig Wednesday is a fun day where ordinary Kiwis in schools, businesses and community groups show their support by wearing a wig, shaving their head or styling a funky hairdo, while raising money for Child Cancer Foundation.
Gumboot Friday is a Bi-annual fun and awareness raising event where New Zealand comes together to raise money for free kids counselling, while wearing Gumboots!
Since 2021, kiwis have donated $3.3 million to fund free kids counselling and at the time of printing, Gumboot Friday has funded 20,481 counselling sessions, helping 9,376 kiwi kids.
