Horses gee up school mufti-day
The students at West Gore School proved they do more than just horse around on mufti days - they raised money for Riding for the Disabled Eastern Southland.
The school had a mufti day on Friday, where the students collected $301 to donate to Riding for the Disabled.
Riding for the Disabled instructor Carol Dawson said the money will go towards two new bars which give riders something to hold on to and remain stable.
Teacher Kelly Mitchell said there were quite a few students at the school who go to Riding for the Disabled, and it was great to be able to contribute to them.
''They love going to Riding for the Disabled, they're always so excited to tell everyone what they do.''
It was also exciting for the students to have the horses come to school that day, she said.
''It's such a cool way to show off what the kids do at Riding for the Disabled.''
