Mufti Day Friday 22 March 2019

We have been giving thought on how best to show our support as a school community to the people of Christchurch.  On Friday 22 March, the Student Council will be holding a Mufti Day. It will be a gold coin donation, but we do ask for those who can manage it, that the contribution be $2.00.  All money raised will go to the Mayoral Fund called ‘Our People, Our City.’  Red is the least culturally appropriate colour from the perspective of the Muslim community, so please, this Friday, do not wear red. By wearing bright, happy colours, we will be showing our support for our Muslim communities and the people of Christchurch.  Thank you.
