Thomas had a mufti day at school today. For those of you who haven’t heard of this phenomenon, it’s a day where the kids don’t have to wear their uniform to school, they can wear clothes that fit into the theme of the day (which today was “rainbow). The kids pay for the privilege, usually a gold coin donation, and this money goes to a charity or is used to raise funds for the school.
Now, when I was at school we didn’t have mufti days as often as the kids of today. I think the first one happened when I was in Year 5, and there may have been another one in Year 6. They certainly didn’t happen very often in high school, either. This year Tom has averaged one mufti day a term, and I imagine there’ll be a couple more before the end of the year. The kids today don’t know how easy they’ve got it.
