Things are look­ing up

Matamata Chronicle - - News - By MERE­ANA AUSTIN

It was time to play dress-up for Mata­mata Col­lege year 13 stu­dents last Fri­day, April 15.

Deputy head girl, Sarah Per­rott, 16, or­gan­ised a themed year 13 only mufti day to raise money to be do­nated to World Vi­sion.

Year 13 stu­dent, Kyle Van Wav­eren, 17, de­cided on the theme of dress­ing up as an idol or some­one that was looked up to by the col­lege stu­dents.

‘‘Be­cause we are be­com­ing adults it was a good idea to dress up as those who we look up to,’’ Sarah said.

Mata­mata Col­lege al­lows the year 13 stu­dents to have ex­tra priv­i­leges such as mufti days as they are the se­niors at the school.

Kyle said he was very pleased with the turn out.

The themed year 13 only mufti day was the first of many more to come.
