Te Poi School bears and hair raise cash for chop­per ap­peal

Matamata Chronicle - - News -

Te Poi School held a wacky hair day and teddy bear’s pic­nic on Fri­day to raise money for the West­pac Waikato Air Am­bu­lance. Prin­ci­pal Linda Wool­house said the chil­dren were aware of the im­por­tance of res­cue he­li­copters as most live in very ru­ral ar­eas. An em­ployee from Mata­mata West­pac at­tended and handed out prizes to the kids with the cra­zi­est hair styles. Schools across the dis­trict will hold wacky hair days as part of the West­pac Chop­per Ap­peal month.
