Auckland gets loud on Loud Shirt Day


Lauren Kumerich, international students events coordinator and Kristina Sokolova, campus life coordinator, manned the muffin and hot chocolate stall.


Hundreds of students and staff at the Auckland campus dusted off their loudest shirts for Loud Shirt Day yesterday, to raise money for The Hearing House and the Southern Cochlear Implant Paediatric Programme.

The two charities are dedicated to enabling deaf children with cochlear implants or hearing aids to listen and speak like their hearing peers. Neither charity charges deaf children or their families for their services.

There was plenty of competition in the inflatable Hungerball arena.


Game on

Hungerball arena was set up outside Student Central – an all-on-all soccer match – as well as hamburgers, hot chocolates and muffins for a gold coin donation. More than $200 was raised.

The Campus Life Team, who organised the fundraising appeal, are still accepting online donations.
