We’re asking children, teachers and parents to wear gumboots to school in support of Gumboot Friday. Put your gumboots or non-uniform footwear on and bring along a gold coin donation (if you can).   All funds raised on the day will help provide free counselling to kids who need it.

Gumboot Friday is a new initiative by New Zealander of the Year, Mike King, and I Am Hope. They are aiming to raise $2million for kids who need some mental health support. You can find out more about Gumboot Friday at www.iamhope.org.nz/gumbootfriday
