The Catholic Agency for Justice, Peace and Development

Mufti Mania

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.

In February, Cyclone Gita caused widespread damage throughout Tonga. One of the worst affected schools was Apifo’ou College in Nuku’alofa.

Join with all the Catholic primary schools around New Zealand as the NZCPPA and Caritas raise money through Mufti Mania to help the school:

  • Repair school classrooms and labs
  • Replace lost teaching resources

Hold a mufti day with real purpose on July 6th and together we will bring back some sense of normality to Apifo’ou College students in Tonga.

Use the following resources to motivate your students to participate in Mufti Mania this year, and to find out more about Apifo'ou College and what happened in Tonga after Cyclone Gita.




Last year, Catholic primary schools joined together to raise funds for Nawi Catholic Primary School in Fiji. As a result the school now has solar power and new books for their new and improved library space. Check out this video:
