APII TE Uki Ou gala day is expected to be bigger and better this year thanks to the staff, students and management of the school for their hard work and non-stop preparations.

Scheduled to take place on Friday July 22, the yearly event is something students and staff had been looking forward to for the past few weeks.

The school’s office manager and Secretary Tina Mitchell said they hope to raise $10,000 or more during the event.

She said funds raised would go towards the school’s development project.

Mitchell said organizers have also organized several activities to make the day a memorable and enjoyable one.

“All are welcome, there are going to be lots of fun games, yummy cakes, food, sweets, white elephant stall and great entertainment. There will be art and craft, bouncy castle and many more activities,” Mitchell said.

“We will have the pleasure of the “Trigger Fish” playing from 3pm to 4pm, so that is very exciting. We have lots of spot prizes to be won on the day.”

Members of the public are encouraged to turn up in numbers and be part of this exciting event.

The much-awaited event will begin at 12pm.
