World Diabetes Day 2020
This week's Mufti-day, held to raise money for Diabetes New Zealand, was an awesome success. Students and staff were encouraged to wear blue and bring gold coin donations to support the cause.
A sausage sizzle was organised by the Year 10 students, with iced cupcakes also for sale. During lunchtime, junior students were able to take part in games such as 'pin the tail on the donkey' and 'giant jenga'. There was also prizes for the Best Dressed in each class.
Diabetes is something that directly affects one of our very own students at The Catlins Area School and it means a great deal that everyone made the effort to support it. We have so far raised $360 for the cause, but this is very likely to increase as more donations are counted.
What an outstanding effort for a a wonderful cause!
