Teachers, students, get 'LOUD' at Claremont to raise money
RECENTLY Claremont Special School supported Hear and Say's annual fundraising initiative Loud Shirt Day.
"Loud Shirt Day is a great opportunity for our students and staff to make a contribution towards a worthy cause. Every year staff and students spend the day dressed as loud as possible," said Claremont Special School Deputy Principal Alastair Hanna.
"This extends beyond loud shirts to include, socks, shorts and hats.
"The students enjoy the opportunity to be out of uniform for the day and love seeing their teachers dressed up LOUD as well.
"Loud Shirt Day is important to us as our students have benefited from the services of Hear and Say in the past.
"It is also important for our students to have the opportunity to give, be part of a fundraising project and support one another."
To celebrate the 12th annual Loud Shirt Day fundraiser , Hear and Say called on locals and business to wear their wackiest shirts and frock up in colourful costumes to get LOUD for children with hearing loss.
Loud Shirt Day is a fundraising initiative, as Hear and Say need to raise approx. $10,000 per year, per child to provide their world leading therapy and support to Queensland youngsters.
