Gruesome two-some Keanu Ata and Utu Cotton were sporting some seriously realistic-looking injuries when Tapora School held a ‘walking wounded’ mufti day to raise funds for St John on April 8.
Principal Keryl Lee says St John educators regularly visit the school to teach first aid and Tapora won a recent draw for a St John Ambulance & Station brick set, so they decided to hold a fundraising day for them.
“The school raised $50, which I thought was pretty cool for only 12 students on the day,” she says. “As we don’t have a school uniform, every day is a mufti day so we thought a walking wounded theme would be fit for purpose.
The $50 can go towards big ticket items they need, but is also enough for three oxygen fills, one luminescent torch or five packs of gloves.”
