Each year since 2007 the New Zealand Catholic Primary Principals' Association (NZCPPA) have partnered with Caritas to run a Mufti Mania day, building solidarity through raising money for poor and vulnerable communities.
As a result of COVID-19 and the current climate, Caritas has made the tough decision to postpone the intended focus of Mufti Mania for 2020. Kristus Raja School in West Papua was the focus – but now this will be the focus for 2021.
Instead, this year for Mufti Mania, we are asking all schools to join in solidarity and contribute to our Pandemic Appeal which was launched in response to COVID-19. Instead of setting a date for all schools to wear mufti, we are asking schools to do an activity of solidarity sometime in term 2 or 3 that may suit particular situations. Let’s all join together and make a difference for those who are less privileged that are still being affected by the crisis.
