    Mount College will be holding a mufti day on Tuesday 22nd August (Tuesday week 5) to support the Tauranga Foodbank. We would kindly ask that each student and staff member bring one or more non-perishable item of food or toiletries with them on Tuesday. You don't have to wear mufti to help us with our food bank appeal, any donations are welcomed. If each student at Mount Maunganui College brought 1 item each it would stock the food bank shelves for a month! Thank you
