Picture: HANNAH MILLERICK LOUD colours were used by Living Waters Lutheran School to help brighten hearing impared childrens days. Students wore colourful T-shirts, ties and socks for Loud Shirt Day. The school raised $600 for deaf research by dressing up and participating in sack races, tug-of-wars and jelly bean counting contests. They also tucked into some colourful frozen dessert cups despite some of them being stolen when the school was broken into last week. Teachers and other staff also got into the act, with groundsman Ray K n i g h t s t a n d i n g o u t i n a technicolour rodeo shirt with a white cowboy hat. The schools year 6 leadership committee organised the day so they could have fun while working for a good cause. Committee member Audrey Hunker said there were a couple of deaf students at the school and it was important to treat them as normal kids. She said: I help a little kid at school who has a hearing aid, but she can play sport and do most things. Loud Shirt Day is an excellent event.
