Apii Arorangi was filled with big smiles and happy faces as the local community supported the school’s first official Gala Day on Friday.

 

With loads of different foods on sale, buyers were spoilt for choice and there were plenty of games and activities to keep the children occupied.

Principal Mairi Heather said the proceeds from the gala would assist PTA projects and education purposes.

“The school will put the money towards new resources for the students and school maintenance,” she said.

Heather says the school is so fortunate to have a community that is so willing to support it.

“The dedication and generosity people have shown today has been amazing.

“Parents, businesses and the community have donated and given much of their time, and students even slept over at the school to prepare everything for sale. The support was overwhelming.”

The school’s target goal was to reach $20,000 and Heather said any additional funds would be a blessing for the school.

Apii Arorangi plans to hold a gala day every two years.
