What a morning. All the children were dressed in the great Canterbury colours of red and black for our mufti day to help raise money to bring Back the Bull
The bronze bull called Chapman’s Homer stood on top of a piano last year in the earthquake rubble on Madras Street? It stopped traffic! Thousands of people got out to take photos and admire the work of Michael Parekowhai. The bull is a wonderful symbol of the strength and resilience of the people of Christchurch over the last three years.
The people of Christchurch want to raise to raise $200,000 to buy Chapman’s Homer where it will take pride of place outside the Christchurch Art Gallery.
Bondy from the radio station 92 Morefm came out to visit us to see just how we were supporting the event. He came and had a chat with Room 1 in the library before going out to meet all the children at school. Rosa, Hannah and Charlie presented him with $635 to donate towards the Bull. Well done to all the children here at school. What a fantastic effort! Then the girls and boys from the Kapa Haka group performed for him. What a great performance.
