End of Year BBQ Get Together

We kicked off the end of year get together next to the new classrooms, in amazing weather, with the school band and food starting at 5. Our school band did a fantastic job. Next band was Spectrum who played a number of their original songs.
A big thank you to our sponsors, Carpet Court (donation of the carpet for raffle), Amalia Maheridis (massage vouchers), Mr Rentals (hamper and free freezer rental), Unilever (iceblocks), Cheryl Ashford (Christmas Cake), Leza Marfell (Christmas Cake) and Annemarie Dunlop (christmas tree mats). A big thank you to Tawa Linden Plunket Toy Library for reducing the bouncy castle fee for us and Papakowhai Kindy for lending us their bouncy castle free. Not to mention all the Home and School helpers who without them the event would not be possible. An especially big thank you to Sue Grazier for all the organising and purchasing for the event.
A decision was made at the Committee meeting to make the bouncy castles and tattoos all free. We also reduced the price of the sausages and had the ham buns as a cheaper option than a hamburger.  The aim of the event was to get the families together with the school.

At 6 Santa gave an appearance and was instantly surrounded. Lots of kids exhibited great values in sharing lollipops with other younger children.

Our third band is pictured above and unfortunately we did not get their band's name but I am sure you know who they are. The fourth band was Shiggaion. All of the bands had a connection to the school and gave their time for free.   Many thanks to them for their great performances.

Thanks to Richard Cory-Wright for taking most of these photos.
