Fair back at school

South Canterbury Herald - - TEMUKA NEWS - KOREN ALLPRESS

Te­muka Pri­mary School is hold­ing a Spring Fair this Satur­day to help raise money for school re­sources.

Fair com­mit­tee mem­ber and stall co-or­di­na­tor Tanya Milne said the money raised would likely be spent on read­ing re­sources and art sup­plies.

‘‘Just things that the school doesn’t re­ceive much fund­ing for,’’ Milne said.

It will be the first Spring Fair the school has held in re­cent years and Milne, and other com­mit­tee mem­bers, hoped it would be­come a reg­u­lar fea­ture.

There will be 38 stalls fea­tur­ing a wide range of items, she said.

‘‘Our main event is our truck­pulling com­pe­ti­tion,’’ she said.

Those 18-years-and-older will be able to pull a truck weigh­ing roughly seven tonnes, while those 17-years-and-younger will com­pete in an ATV pull, she said.

Male teams can have up to two men in them, while teams of women could have up to four mem­bers. A mixed team can have up to three mem­bers.

The team with the fastest time over a set dis­tance would win a gift bas­ket, she said. Teams can reg­is­ter at the school, or on the day.

The fair will take place at Te­muka Pri­mary School on Satur­day, Septem­ber 16 from 10am un­til 3pm.
