Today was a special day for New Zealand. We declared this day the Red and Black Day to remember all the people who have suffered from the tragic earthquake of last week. The day is signified by the colours red and black because those are the colours that represent Christchurch.
Our whole school dressed in red and black today to participate in this important event. We all had to donate some money to go towards the Christchurch relief. Some of us brought extra money so that we could give more.
At lunchtime, we had many parents and even teachers who brought some of their tasty baked goods to raise money. We also had the school council organise face painting. We raised over $3,000. We are very proud of ourselves today.
