Red & Black

Today Aaron's School had an Alternate Dress Day - they were encouraged to wear something red and black in support of the recent earthquake in Christchurch. There was a minimum fee to participate, but they could donate more if they wished.
When I found this out earlier in the week I was totally blown away. I mean an International School here in Malaysia raising money for our little country New Zealand! There are a few "Kiwi" kids at the school, but not that many, so for the school to do something like this really touches my heart.
I dropped Maddison off at her school a little bit earlier and then Samuel and I huffed & puffed (well, I puffed and he relaxed!) our way up to Aaron's school so I could take some pictures. :-)

It was so neat walking past classrooms and seeing a "sea" of little red & black clothed kids going about their work.
I asked my helper to take a pic of Samuel and I when we got back home ... it was too hot to put his black shorts on so he's in his black pram and has a red bib on hehee :-)
Will be interesting to see how much money the school raised.
This time next week we will be winging our way to New Zealand for a holiday. I do hope the airport will be open!
Thanks for visiting.
