Gumboot Up on Friday 5 April!

The St Martins Student Council are asking students, teachers and parents to wear gumboots to school in support of Gumboot Friday. Put your gumboots 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

Please encourage your friends, family and community to #GumbootUpNZ on 5 April!

The student council will be running a gumboot throwing event and a house relay.
