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 2019, we're supporting Doputz Primary School in Bougainville (Papua New Guinea).

Join with all the Catholic primary schools around New Zealand as the NZCPPA and Caritas raise money through Mufti Mania to help re-open their schools by: 

  • Providing new water tanks and toilets
  • Repairing classrooms

Hold a mufti day with real purpose on the last day of term two (Friday July 5th) and together we can help students in Bougainville enjoy learning again. 

The resources below are available to help students learn more about Bougainville and Doputz Primary School in preparation for Mufti Mania on July 5th.

In 2018, Catholic primary schools joined together during Mufti Mania and raised more than $27,000 for Apifo'ou College in Tonga after Cyclone Gita caused damage to school buildings and resources earlier in the year. Watch the video below to hear members of the school saying thanks...
