Schools raise thousands for Christchurch

17 March 2011
Seven Waipa primary schools have raised $3,694 for the Christchurch earthquake Mayoral Fund appeal.
 
The money was presented to Waipa Mayor Alan Livingston at a special hui (ceremony) in the Council Chamber last week.
 
Te Awamutu, Pokeru, Pekerau, Pirongia, St Patrick's, Ohaupo and Kihikihi primary schools held various fundraising activities for pupils to participate in by giving a gold coin donation.
 
Activities included a range of special 'days', including red and black, mufti, heroes and pizza day.
 
The schools also made cards with messages of hope and support for the people of Christchurch. Mayor Livingston will forward these on to Christchurch Mayor Bob Parker.
