It's been 2 weeks since Cyclone Winston tore through Fiji, leaving children homeless and in desperate need of water, shelter and emergency supplies. Whole villages have been wiped out, crops have been ripped from the ground and infrastructure lies in ruins.
This is the largest natural disaster Fiji has ever experienced. They need our help now.
This Friday we will be having our first Mufti Day for 2016. The theme will be Pacifica and all money raised will be supporting the Pacific Kids charity.
The Making The Difference Charity for Pacific Kids has been helping orphans of the Pacific island for the past three years in Loloma, near Nadi. Since Cyclone Winston they have focused on bringing relief to Fiji and getting emergency supplies to those in need. Every cent raised goes towards helping those in the Pacific.
To help support Pacific Kids, students can donate a gold coin for Mufti Day on Friday. They can also bring in any school supplies such as stationery and reading books, as well as a food donation. Fiji is in urgent need of the following items:
• Tinned fish/corned meat
• Tinned fruits
• Tinned jam
• Dry split peas
• Breakfast crackers
All food will be stored in the Function Room, there will also be a bake sale outside the Function Room on Friday.

I encourage you all to do our bit to help the Fiji cyclone victims.
