Central Otago Mirror - - CONVERSATIONS -

Re­mark­ables Pri­mary School is hold­ing a spe­cial Christ­mas mar­ket, full of Christ­mas good­ies and spirit.

PTA spokes­woman Tracey Ped­er­sen said there would be mod­ern Christ­mas carols, de­liv­ered by lo­cal mu­si­cians and the school’s choir and mu­si­cal groups, to get ev­ery­one in the spirit of the sea­son.

Another ma­jor fundraiser at the school, the CAR­ni­val, was held ev­ery sec­ond year so this was seen as an op­por­tu­nity to get another event in the cal­en­dar.

More than 30 stalls will sell ev­ery­thing from jew­ellery, pinot noir Christ­mas cakes and kids cloth­ing to con­crete pots.

Briar Den­ni­son and Sasha Key, both 9, are help­ing on the Christ­mas Stall where they will be sell­ing pre-pack­aged in­gre­di­ents to make your own Christ­mas cook­ies (just add but­ter), fudge, cup cakes

Breast feed­ing sup­port and par­ent­ing re­sources, top­ics and speak­ers. Con­tact He­len
