Matamata Chronicle - - Your Paper, Your Place -

Sit­ting in the sun, soak­ing up the at­mos­phere at yet an­other great com­mu­nity event is cer­tainly an en­vi­able po­si­tion to be in. I of­ten hear the sen­tence ‘what a great job you have, you must meet so many in­ter­est­ing peo­ple’.

That state­ment is ex­actly how I feel and even more so while I was sit­ting at the St Joseph’s Catholic School’s Spring Fash­ion Soiree on Satur­day af­ter­noon.

The fan­tas­tic women be­hind this event wanted to put their beloved school on the map and boy did they do that. The event was sim­ply stun­ning. A ten­nis court full of women cel­e­brat­ing fash­ion and all it does for us. It was a first for the school, putting on such an event, but I cer­tainly hope it won’t be the last. The funds raised will now be used to mar­ket what the school has to of­fer in the hope the roll will in­crease. Or­gan­is­ers im­plore par­ents to not dis­card their school, but to head along and check it out. See next week’s Chron­i­cle for pho­tos from the event. En­joy your long week­end but please, be safe out there!
