Press Release

Whangaparaoa Primary School Gala 2013
Where the family comes to play

Saturday 16 March, 11am – 3pm

This year’s Whangaparaoa Primary School Gala is gearing up to be better than ever and is set to surprise and delight local families with great food, entertainment, stalls, games and more.

With the support of local businesses and an army of around 250 parent volunteers, the Gala is an important fundraiser for the school, raising valuable funds to help with classroom resources.

The highlights of this year’s gala include:
White Elephant jumble sale
• Raffles with amazing prizes
• Toy shop, book and cake stalls
• Bouncy castles and mini hot rods
• Glitz and Glam face painting
• Dress up photo booth
• Performances by kids entertainment group Peaches and Pickles, local band Undercover and Whangaparaoa Primary Kapa Haka

Making a splash this year is the extremely popular Soak-a-teacher, where the students get to bombard their teachers with water balloons. This year Principal Steve Collins has been ‘talked into’ riding a small bike around while hoping to dodge as many watery missiles as possible.

“When I told the committee I would do anything to help fundraise for this years Gala, I didn’t imagine I would be riding on a tiny bike in wet weather gear, but its for a great cause and all a bit of fun,” says Steve.

To help beat the heat, the School will open up the pool for the little ones to cool off, with lifeguards on patrol.

The Gala will be held rain or shine, in the school grounds, Ladies Mile, on Saturday 16 March 2013 from 11am to 3pm.
