Pupils do good deeds

Matamata Chronicle - - News -

Sunny skies saw Mata­mata Pri­mary students head out­side to pick up rub­bish on Fri­day as part of Keep New Zealand Beau­ti­ful Week.

With both the school grounds and the ad­join­ing pub­lic do­main to cover, clus­ters of chil­dren were kept busy throughout the day.

As well as do­ing their part to clean up the town, the school showed their sup­port for the char­ity for teenagers with can­cer, Can­Teen.

The Mata­mata chil­dren raised money sell­ing ban­dan­nas and wrist bands and pre­sented a cheque for $1200 to a Can­Teen rep­re­sen­ta­tive at a spe­cial assem­bly.

Prin­ci­pal Carolyn Os­borne said par­tic­i­pat­ing in these kinds of projects showed students how they could con­trib­ute to the community.

Staff at Mata­mata’s Noble and Lee pulled on their bright­est colours on Fri­day to show sup­port for deaf chil­dren in New Zealand. Loud Shirt Day is the an­nual ap­peal of The Hear­ing House and the South­ern Cochlear Im­plant Pae­di­atric Pro­gramme, help­ing to raise funds and aware­ness. Keep­ing green: Mata­mata Pri­mary students pick­ing up rub­bish as part of Keep New Zealand Beau­ti­ful Week.
