School gears for gala

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

Cud­dly cats, ten­der­hearted ted­dies and other fleecy friends will be look­ing for a home at this Satur­day’s Pare­mata School gala.

There will be a heap of soft toys for sale and other chil­dren’s sec­ond-hand toys and cloth­ing when the gala kicks off at 11am.

All money raised will go to­wards out­door fur­ni­ture and land­scap­ing to cre­ate a shaded court­yard area, fol­low­ing the re­moval of two big trees, says gala co­or­di­na­tor Belle Han­ra­han. It will also help fund new sports equip­ment.

‘‘We al­ways re­ceive so much sup­port from the lo­cal com­mu­nity and it’s great for us to be able to fund a few ex­tras for the school. Last year the gala made it pos­si­ble for us to cre­ate a new hard court area for the chil­dren to play on and it’s been very pop­u­lar.’’

The Beat Girls are back to head­line the gala, and also re­turn­ing is the Zip­pity Zoo Mo­bile Farm Pet­ting Zoo. A food hall will of­fer a wide range of culi­nary de­lights.

The gala will run un­til 3pm. For more in­for­ma­tion con­tact Pare­mata School of­fice on 233 1339.
