Geraldine High School's historically most successful mufti day for the year will aid a village in Nepal.

The mufti day raised $1000 for the village which the Geraldine Tramping Club visits each year.

Geraldine High School principal Juliette Hayes said it is a mufti day the school really gets behind because of the ongoing association with the village.

"Ideally we will send some students along as well one year," Hayes said.

She said the school has over the years sponsored various things including school equipment, providing clean water and solar panels.

There were four solar panels in the village, which had been named after South Canterbury rivers; Waihi, Rangitata, Rakaia and Orari, she said.
