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.
