Pukerua Bay School ‘Seaside’ Gala 29 March 2014

Pack your bucket and spade, slap on sunscreen and head on down to this year’s Seaside Gala at Pukerua Bay School on Saturday 29 March, 11am.

There will be live entertainment, lots of activities for the family and bargains to keep everyone happy.

School principal Mary Jones says this year money raised will mainly be used to purchase computer and technology equipment.

“Technology modernisation happens quickly and we want to keep up with it. Our school community believe in providing resources that give our children the best possible learning environment, and technology is a very important aspect to their education.”

Mrs Jones says the school community is busy making sure this year’s Gala will be entertaining and a successful one.

“We will have horse rides, paintball, bouncy castles, a big slide and after a successful first year, Fairy and Elf Land will be back.”

There will be the usual stalls – toys, clothing, bric-a-brac, books, craft and the silent auction, as well as great coffee and a superb food court which includes the big bbq and vegetable curry.

Mrs Jones says last year’s Gala raised $30,000. “For a small school of 164 children, being able to raise funds like this is a huge achievement. The school community works hard before the day, so it’s wonderful to see it come together - it’s a fabulous day for the school.”
