Pupils on mis­sion to sell paving plan

South Waikato News - - NEWS -

Toko­roa High School students are mak­ing it their mis­sion to fundraise for a out­door cafe area which will ben­e­fit students in more ways than one.

The Mis­sion On team led by Head Girl Stacey King have started their first fundrais­ing cam­paign, sell­ing cob­ble­stones at $2 each.

‘‘This is some­thing that is needed at our school,’’ Stacey said. ‘‘We cur­rently do not have a space where we can sit and eat our lunch in wet and hot weather. The out­side cafe is is a per­ma­nent struc­ture that will ben­e­fit ev­ery­one. We have gone to dif­fer- ent schools to see what their setup is like, we have done a lot of home­work into this.’’ The struc­ture is set to cost $50,000.

The students have 14,000 cob­ble­stones to sell and have a unique deal for those pur­chas­ing over 150 stones.

‘‘If a busi­ness or per­son buys 150 cob­ble­stones they will get a bronze plaque to be put in the out­door cafe. If they pur­chase 250 they will get a sil­ver plaque and 500 they will re­ceive a gold plaque.’’ Stacey said.

To pur­chase a cob­ble­stone please contact the Toko­roa High School of­fice on 07 886 6109.
