The Paragon School and Prior Park College were awash with red and black on Friday as the two schools held a mufti day to raise funds for the Christchurch earthquake appeal.
All staff and children wore red and black, the sporting colours of Christchurch, New Zealand, and raised around 900. The money raised will be sent to a school affected by the recent devastating earthquake.
Twenty schools in Christchurch are still closed and over 8,000 students have been placed in other schools around the country. The organisers, New Zealand-born teachers Mr Toby Goodman and Mrs Joanna Kearney, were delighted with the success of the day.
Mr Tony Goodman comments:
We were devastated by the recent news and wanted to try and help as best we could. Many staff and children in the Prior Foundation have close family ties with New Zealand so we felt it was very important to support this extremely worthy cause.
