A class of Year 5-6 students at Whangaparaoa School decided to run their own mini-gala recently, after the Covid-19 lockdown caused the cancellation of the school’s big fundraising gala.
A learner-as-a-maker class of 28 students held the mini-gala on June 12, which was open to the whole school. They dressed up and added plenty of decorations to their stalls.
Each group made a minimum of 50 products and there were jolly jars and juicies to make sure no one went away empty handed.
The students raised a total of $4100, which Principal Kevin Cronin says was a fantastic result.
