It will be all go at

Waihi East School as they gear up for the Christ­mas Car­ni­val Twi­light Mar­ket.

Board of Trustees deputy chair­woman Michelle Burr says the re­sponse from the school wha¯nau and com­mu­nity has been in­cred­i­ble.

“We have had some won­der­ful dona­tions of items for our Silent Auc­tion: Bil­l­abong and Roxy hand­bags, Pan­dora ear­rings, a gor­geous wall hang­ing, Sun­beam blender, and so much more.”

She says the stu­dents love the fun at­mos­phere of the Twi­light Mar­ket and help­ing on the stalls.

“It’s lovely for them to show their fam­i­lies what they have been cre­at­ing for the mar­ket. We have a va­ri­ety of hand­made Christ­mas dec­o­ra­tions to sell, beau­ti­ful wands, slime and lots more.

“Stu­dents are putting on en­ter­tain­ment dur­ing the mar­ket and there will be singing, danc­ing and a pup­pet show which will be great fun.”

Classes will also have art­work that they have been work­ing on this term proudly dis­played, she says.

New at­trac­tions in­cluded gum­boot throw­ing and Lob-aChoc.

“With car­ni­val games, rides, in­ter­na­tional food stalls, cafe and cakes, gifts, plants and pro­duce, raffles, pony rides and silent auc­tions.

“There re­ally is some­thing for ev­ery­one.”

Money raised would be used for the Year 5 and 6 Camp be­ing held at Port Waikato that would pro­vide devel­op­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties for the stu­dents.
