Gala

I would like to sincerely thank all families who helped to make our gala and hangi so successful. A huge number of people contributed in so many different ways. In spite of it being a very cold evening I think a lot of fun was had by all. The final total for the gala is currently being worked on but we raised near to $9000 which is not " too shabby".  All of the money raised by the Home and School is used to directly support students who are in our school now, so this is a great result. We benefitted from having good sponsorship from our local Opunake business community and the Hawera Business community and we are very glad of that ongoing relationship; a list of our sponsors is currently displayed on our web page. We have a few more sponsors to add over the next few days.  I would very much like to thank the schools extended whanau who always step up to support us when we need more hands on deck. Many grandparents, aunties and uncles helped out with the hangi and also with stalls and quick fire raffles. This kind of support is invaluable; so once again a huge thanks to everyone for making school a great place for our students.
