Plenty to do at gala
Postgate School’s first gala in a number of years promises Harley Davidson rides, Christmas carols and kapa haka, along with wind chimes and other items made by students for sale.
This Saturday the school grounds will be full of things to see and do. Every class will be responsible for a stall and there will be crafts and second-hand clothes and books for sale.
The most sought-after items will be those the students have made during class time – including wind chimes, flax baskets, Christmas cards and bird feeders.
A hangi, costing $10 each person, is likely to be popular, and cafe food will be available as well. A bouncy castle and games such as threelegged races will take place on the field, and the Fire Service will have an engine on site.
Harley Davidson rides are bound to be a big attraction, for kids big and small. Entertainment will consist of Christmas carols, kapa haka and other cultural items learnt during the school year.
Money raised will go towards an upgrade of the school’s playground.
The gala is on rain or shine, from 11am till 3pm.
Perfect gifts: Postgate School students Leilani Sei and Jaaziel Maene show off what they have made in class this term, which will be for
sale this Saturday.
