Kids’ ef­forts help at gala

Matamata Chronicle - - News -

Wa­ter guns, face paint and carnival-style games made for a buzzing at­mos­phere at the Mata­mata Pri­mary School Gala on Fri­day.

Prin­ci­pal Carolyn Os­bourne said the gala was a huge suc­cess, with hun­dreds turn­ing out.

Year 5 and 6 students de­signed and ran their own small en­ter­prises, rang­ing from ‘‘guess the num­ber of lol­lies in the jar’’ to ‘‘smash the wa­ter bombs’’.

Any prof­its the students made will go straight back into their class­rooms.

A silent auc­tion, bouncy cas­tles and pony rides also kept the crowds busy.

Ni­cola Ste­wart went along.
