ITC students dress up in colour to raise money for KidscanPosted on 23/10/2018 by Jess O'Connor
Normally, the International Travel College of New Zealand (ITC) enforces a strict black and white dress code (to help students get into the habit of dressing professionally).
However, if you walked into the ITC City Campus on October 3, black was almost nowhere to be seen.
Everyone turned up to College in their brightest colours to raise money for Kidscan.
The mufti day was a success; together, students raised a total of $153 for the children’s charity.
ITC International Marketing Manager Lesley Brough was humbled by the student’s enthusiasm and generosity.
“You guys are awesome! The money is being given to Kidscan who help Kiwi kids living in poverty through a variety of programs,” she said.
“Thank you for coming to College all dressed up in support of such a wonderful cause.”
ITC often holds mufti days to raise money for charities and not-for-profits. Over the years, staff and students at ITC have raised money for the Auckland City Mission, SPCA, New Zealand Breast Cancer Foundation, RSA, Cure Kids, Arthritis NZ, and more.
On these mufti days, students are asked to bring a gold coin donation. However, it’s not unusual for many students to donate much more if they can.
Fundraising mufti days are great for the chosen charity, and they also have the added bonus of bringing students together. Many friendships are formed on days like these, and the tutors love to get involved, too.
ITC is already looking forward to the next one!Posted in News, Student success | Leave a reply
