Jade's School - Sandspit Road School in Waiuku raised an awesome $558 on their mufti day. Jade is Tara's step daughter and Charlotte's pen pal so was great to see the school we are part of giving us such great support.
Waiau Pa School (thanks to my awesome friend Sarah!!) had a 'Blue day' and raised $393 - which is an awesome effortl!! Sarah's class put together a proposal for why the school should support Tara and have a mufti day and created created 'Blue Day' posters to promote the day.
Check out what the students of Room 15 Waiau School created here and their 'Blue Day' photo below.
Thank you to all the staff and great students at these schools for your support and raising awareness of Tara's row and raising much needed funds for Charlotte. Also Tara wanted to say thank you to the students (and staff) from the schools who have been sending her messages - she appreciates all of the supportive words.
I have heard murmur of other schools also getting behind Tara and coming up with some great fundraisers. If you or your school is doing something, please let me know firstname.lastname@example.org
Also not to be forgotten I received a great picture from Room 4 Sandspit Road School on Friday. They have a regular 'checking on Tara's progress' catch up and send Tara messages. The photo below is of them waving to the 'sea ladies' on the tracker which Mrs Healey has up on her interactive board!!
