OUR SCHOOL FAIR
The Maungawhau Annual School Fair is a highlight of our local communities calendar, attracting thousands of attendees from the local area and far beyond. It is a fun, vibrant and energetic event offering a wide range of food, entertainment and shopping experiences over the course of the day.
Highlights Include - The Terminator Inflatable Obstacle course, Zorb Balls, Craft Market, Home Made Deli's & Preserves and gorgeous Cakes, the famous Chocolate Demise Dessert & Gourmet Burgers....as well as the renowned 2nd Hand Market including the White Elephant, clothing, books and toys!
If that wasn't enough - we are also attempting NZ
Endless fun for all ages!
A MESSAGE FROM OUR PRINCIPAL DELANEE DALE
A huge thank you for the fantastic support for the ‘Kiwiathon’ and the amazing auction. The Maungawhau community sure know how to party, and to spend (all for a good cause, our school).
At this stage our ‘athon’ has raised $10000 and our auction over $27000. With the addition of our famous school fair, still to occur, we are well on track to meet our $98 000 fundraising target for 2014.
So far the money has been spent on increasing the digital infrastructure in our school which will enable us to gain the most benefit from our fibre optic connection, greater wireless coverage in our school, and for Rooms 19-24, 27 & 28, the purchase of 38 chromebooks. The chromebooks have been a huge success in these classrooms, and are resulting in much greater motivation in terms of student writing, collaboration and feedback on their peers’ work. If we exceed our $98000 budget (which looks likely at this stage) we can begin purchasing some tablets for our junior classrooms which will increase student motivation, connectivity and engagement.
My sincere thanks to all of our parents for supporting all fundraising efforts. This is very much appreciated by us all.
This site exists to give parents details of all fundraising events throughout the year!
Fundraising is very important in a Decile 10 school as we receive the least amount of government funding which directly impacts our children’s schooling life.
Fundraising is split over a number of activities not only to help us reach our annual target of $98,000 but also to provide a supportive environment that ALL parents are encouraged to be a part of - let’s have some fun while we support our children and the school. If we all do our little bit, our children enjoy the benefits.
We have kept this site separate to the school website which is undergoing several changes this year - this will allow us to communicate accurate and timely information to parents year round.
We are constantly looking for people to help out with their skills or donate items for prizes, so please get in touch if you think you could be helpful. Check out the list below of some areas in which we need parent volunteers to assist.
All updates will feed through to our new facebook page, so follow us to keep informed!
If you are involved with any fundraising events within our school and would like additional informaiton uploaded to help other parents, please contact Lara Hrstic - firstname.lastname@example.org
