Bay gala’s pot of gold

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

More than $26,000 was raised at the Pukerua Bay gala, which dou­bled as a St Pa­trick’s Day cel­e­bra­tion.

Prin­ci­pal Mary Jones says it is an ‘‘amaz­ing re­sult’’.

‘‘ It’s ab­so­lutely bril­liant that de­spite tough eco­nomic times peo­ple are still out in force, sup­port­ing our school. I feel hum­bled by the strength of com­mu­nity sup­port we con­tinue to ex­pe­ri­ence year af­ter year. A big thanks to our com­mu­nity and es­pe­cially to our spon­sors who helped to make it such a great day.’’

The sunny weather made the day even more en­joy­able, she says, with Un­cle Mon­key pro­vid­ing mu­si­cal en­ter­tain­ment, while the stalls and rides were hum­ming.

The funds raised will go to­wards new lap­tops for the class­rooms and other IT equip­ment.
