Car­ni­val fun at St Theresa’s


If the ex­cite­ment of the St Theresa’s school chil­dren is any­thing to go by, the school’s an­nual car­ni­val will be a big hit on Satur­day.

St Theresa’s prin­ci­pal Zita Smith said the event was a fix­ture of the Plim­mer­ton com­mu­nity and had been run­ning since be­fore she ar­rived at the school 12 years ago.

‘‘It’s a bit of an in­sti­tu­tion and it’s some­thing that ev­ery fam­ily helps out with,’’ she said. ‘‘We have a his­tor­i­cal rep­u­ta­tion.’’ Smith said they hoped to raise $25,000, which would cover the fi­nal in­stal­ment of what the school needed to build a new learn­ing hub.

‘‘It will take us over the line, which is very ex­cit­ing.’’

There will be games, home­made sweets, jams and pickles and bar­gain sales, while Zappo the Ma­gi­cian and Welling­ton’s own Iron Man are set for an ap­pear­ance.

There are big prizes up for grabs in raf­fles, in­clud­ing an iPad and a trip to Auck­land worth $1000.

The St Theresa’s Car­ni­val is on at the school on Satur­day, March 14, 11am till 3pm.
