Odd Sock Day is a tradition at Petrie Terrace State School and is in commemoration of a past student who died in a road accident. Maeve Coughlan was a gifted, high spirited and creative child who had a vivid imagination. We believe she was the epitome of the Petrie Terrace Child who cares about others and enjoys childhood to its fullest and is encouraged to be the 'best You that you can be'.  Maeve referred to Petrie Terrace School as 'Bumble Town' hence the naming of Bumble Town Hall in her honour. She also wore odd socks, and at times odd shoes, so in remembrance of her we encourage the wearing of odd socks on or around the anniversary of her passing each year and acknowledge the special child in all of us. 

More information about Maeve and her family can be found on a website titled Planet Creature. (external link)
