Mufti Mania Days

Mufti Mania is on Friday 4 July. Each year the New Zealand Catholic Primary Principals Association (NZCPPA) organises a Mufti Mania Day to raise money for poor and vulnerable communities. Since 2007 they have partnered with Caritas to support a project.

St Joseph's Technical College in Hapai, Tonga was damaged by Cyclone Ian in January 2014.

When Cyclone Ian hit Tonga in January 2014, the roof of St Joseph's Technical College industrial arts classroom was destroyed. Practical skills like woodwork and metalwork, which were taught in the classroom, are important in Tonga as many students go on to become carpenters, mechanics or involved in hands-on trades.

The school which is on Ha'apai Island, tried teaching these subjects in the main school building, but the noise disturbed students in other classes and they had to stop. Mufti Mania funds from 2014 will go towards building a new classroom.

Since 2007 Catholic Schools across New Zealand have raised over $100,000 through Mufti Mania to support schools in the Pacific.

Available at the links below are a Mufti Mania poster and power point presentation for use in your school.
