Students put feet for­ward

Matamata Chronicle - - News -

Staff and students at Firth Pri­mary School had fun mix­ing it up on Fri­day to help a worth­while cause. Odd Shoe Day is a new fundrais­ing ini­tia­tive which sup­ports Camp Qual­ity in New Zealand.

Camp Qual­ity is a non-profit vol­un­teer or­gan­i­sa­tion pro­vid­ing sup­port pro­grammes for up to 200 chil­dren, aged 5 to 16, liv­ing with can­cer.

Prin­ci­pal James Eldridge said the day was an easy, fun and in­ex­pen­sive way for students to show their sup­port.

As well as help­ing to raise aware­ness, the chil­dren also made a gold coin do­na­tion.

Pic­tured in their odd pairs are Katie Ken­wor­thy, Troy Mercer, Mr Eldridge, Amy Mohring and Am­ber Bai­ley.
