Things are looking up
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.
