Mount Maunganui suffered major damage in a freak tornado. We'd like to show our support and help them recover.

  Nationwide In Need Aid Tragedy

A freak tornado tore through Mount Maunganui Intermediate and destroyed to the school's new all-weather sports area, worth $120,000. It ripped up turf and sails, buckled fences, lifted and threw hockey goals, and bent 10cm steel shade sail poles. Winds on the school's weather station measured 175kmh.

Our thoughts are with the school and we’d like to show our support by raising some funds to help them get back on their feet.

INTERFACE Magazine's involvement (page creator)

INTERFACE is involved not only because of our involvement in the education sector but also because we held our Xpo event three days after the tornado - and just up the road. INTERFACE Editor visited the school and damage right after it had occurred. "As we were running our event so close to where this happened - teachers from the school attended Xpo - we felt we wanted to show our support and that of the education community that's part of the INTERFACE family."

Questions about buildings  22 May 2015

We've received several questions relating to the school's buildings. This appeal is not for any building repair - any damage to school buildings is the responsibility of the Ministry of Education. This appeal is to assist with repairs to the play/sports area, which is not covered under this.
