To emphasise the reach of social media, Mudgee High School have taken Rainbow Day 2013 to a whole new level. A school assignment asking the students to create an internet campaign has seen them create a local media sensation in their quest for none other than comic duo Hamish and Andy to join them for Rainbow Day 2013.
It seems while other school across the country appear to suffer vandalism and strife on their last day of school, our Mudgee students are making headlines for all the right reasons. That’s right, we’re used to the students of Mudgee High School creating a media frenzy at their end of year celebrations, but it’s because of their amazing fundraising skills! Last year Mudgee High School raised in excess of $11,000 on Rainbow Day to help the Mudgee Volunteer Rescue Squad replace their aging truck.
This year the Mudgee High School kids have banded together, and despite initial suggestions that Hamish and Andy won’t be able to make it, are persisting with their online efforts in the hope that enough publicity and social media popularity may convince the ‘caravan of courage’ to make the trip to Mudgee. The staff and students at Mudgee High School need to be congratulated for their shift of thinking for the younger generation and for their valued contribution to the Mudgee community. We owe it to them to get behind them and help them achieve their goal this year of having Hamish and Andy attend Rainbow Day.
Our team at Professionals Mudgee Real Estate would love to get everyone behind their great effort and ask you to jump across and ‘like’ their ‘Bring Hamish and Andy to Mudgee for Rainbow Day 2013’ facebook page. By sharing this post and liking their page, at worst you’ve helped the kids realise the impact of social media, and at best we can all enjoy a few more laughs in Mudgee this September.
What would you say to Hamish and Andy to get them to come to Mudgee?
