This is Bart and Steph's last year running the Haunted House for the Country Fair.  It is a very popular activity and would be a shame to lose it.  They are currently looking for 1 or 2 families to take it over.  There are a number of props associated with it and you would need to be available the day before the fair for a full day set up. Please contact Laura on 021728372 if you would be interested.

Fair planning is underway and we're keen to get feedback from the school community ideas/opportunities/experiences that you'd like to see available in the Silent Auction at the Country Fair this year. No idea is too small or too far fetched! Please let us know any opportunities that you may be able to source or ideas of items that you'd like to be bidding on.
We're also calling for helpers to start calling around the local business communities. This is not a big job, as the businesses are expecting our call and you have a list of items that they have donated in the past that you can refer to. Please contact Meg Matthews meg@matthewsfamily.co.nz if you can assist or if you have ideas and opportunities to contribute.

Jam makers … berries are now available from the freezer in the school boiler room.
Sugar- Donations of sugar for jam making gratefully received. Please give to Pam in the school office.
Lucky bags … think about putting some bits and pieces aside for these
Second hand goods... if you are having a clearing out things can start being put into the container and to the swimming pool area
We are also looking for a few people to come on board to 'shadow' people in current fair roles with the plan of taking a lead in future years. A number of our current leads will be leaving in the next couple of years and it would be great if some new people were familiar with these roles.
If you are interested in getting involved we would love to hear from you!
