Orca Mufti Day

Orca Mufti Day

Written by Samantha Hale (from the USA)

In the USA, I went to Catholic high school for grades 9-12.  We had to wear uniforms and on certain days were permitted to wear normal clothes for a small donation to a charity or fundraiser.  Well, today the Orca Research Team headed down to Point View School in Hawick for a MUFTI day, which is the New Zealand equivalent as I quickly learned.  The children paid a dollar in order to wear black and white clothes (or orca costumes) and had a longer lunch break in order to participate in many different orca themed activities.  They could have their faces painted, join raffles, get postcards autographed by Ingrid, purchase cookies and even play games!  I was completely in shock by the amazing costumes and attitudes of the students and teachers alike.  The entire school was infected with orca fever and even though we were only there for a few hours, I could sense the amazing community atmosphere that the school embodied.  After an hour or so of doing autographs, the lunch break ended and Ingrid, Leonie and I went up to the classroom of Kate Nortan, a close teacher friend of Ingrid’s.  Kate introduced us to the different volunteers, had Ingrid sign some more photos and had us help her choose the winners of the different activities.  There were works of art, papers and stories that were written, costume contests and so much more!  By the end of the day, the winners of all of the contests came up for their prizes and a ‘Thank You’ and picture with Ingrid.  I could not be more impressed with the spirit of the children, volunteers and teachers and was thrilled to see such support and that the school raised over $4,000 for the Orca Research Trust.  This money will be used for such projects as repairing the boat (which is still in the workshop with a busted pontoon).
