Com­mu­nity spirit shown through school’s fun day

Eastern Courier - - YOUR LOCAL NEWS - LIU CHEN

Paku­ranga Heights School is putting on a mas­sive event across the whole cam­pus this Satur­day.

It’s the school’s first Par­ent Teacher As­so­ci­a­tion (PTA) fam­ily fun day and has lots of ac­tiv­i­ties for kids and par­ents.

Dozens of lo­cal busi­nesses and com­mu­nity groups will be show­cas­ing, in­clud­ing Te Tuhi Cen­tre for the Arts, GKR Karate, Fen­ci­bles Foot­ball Club, Auck­land Chess Club and many oth­ers.

Par­ent, Amy Maisey, who came up with the idea a year ago, says adults de­serve to have fun them­selves in­stead of just ‘‘stand- ing back and watch­ing’’.

They have the chance to try danc­ing, foot­ball, karate and life draw­ing on the day.

There will also be an out­door cafe with na­chos, In­dian food, cake stall, burg­ers, sausage siz­zles, ice creams and drinks.

‘‘This is the big­gest idea I’ve ever had. I’m re­ally proud of it,’’ Maisey says.

PTA chair­man Rob Find­lay says the event is about the kids and the fun.

‘‘[We’d like to] put our­selves out to the wider com­mu­nity and see what we can do for them as well as the school.’’

Paku­ranga Heights School PTA Fam­ily Fun Day is on Satur­day, Novem­ber 11, 11am-3pm, 77 Udys Road.
