Waihi East School is in prepa­ra­tion mode as it gears up for its Christ­mas Car­ni­val Twi­light Mar­ket.

Board of Trus­tees deputy chair­woman Michelle Burr says the event will raise funds for the 2019 Year 5 and 6 camp.

The camp, which is be­ing held at Port Waikato would pro­vide de­vel­op­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties for stu­dents and be an amaz­ing ex­pe­ri­ence, she says.

“By keep­ing the cost down for fam­i­lies we can en­sure that all of the chil­dren at­tend camp. Some of the ben­e­fits that our chil­dren gain from at­tend­ing camp are fur­ther de­vel­op­ing their prob­lem-solv­ing skills, build­ing trust­ing friend­ships and re­la­tion­ships with each other and teach­ers.

“They will also learn to push be­yond their own self lim­its, par­tic­i­pat­ing in ac­tiv­i­ties that they might not oth­er­wise get the op­por­tu­nity to such as ab­seil­ing, archery, and rock climb­ing, im­prov­ing self con­fi­dence and be­com­ing more in­de­pen­dent.”

Mean­while the whole school was get­ting be­hind the Christ­mas Car­ni­val Twi­light Mar­ket and she was en­cour­ag­ing fam­i­lies and mem­bers of the com­mu­nity to mark Thurs­day De­cem­ber 6 on their cal­en­dar and join in with the fes­tiv­i­ties.

“The Car­ni­val brings the com­mu­nity to­gether for a fun and en­ter­tain­ing evening.

“Come and have din­ner at the in­ter­na­tional food stalls, browse the pro­duce mar­ket and bric-a-brac, class­room stalls, fun car­ni­val stalls, and amaz­ing en­ter­tain­ment put on by our stu­dents. Buy a ticket for one of the many raf­fles on of­fer and place a bid on one of the in­cred­i­ble silent auc­tions.”
