Kia ora whānau, 


We desperately need your help to make our school fair a success. This fair benefits your children and their learning.


Class teachers have sent out letters requesting helpers on the night of the fair, along with volunteers to cook items beforehand.


Unfortunately, we are not getting a great turnout of volunteers, which makes our teacher’s tasks really challenging.


Please get in behind your child’s classroom teacher to assist on the night of the 15th of March. 30 min is all that is required, or more if you can offer.


All of our staff give up their night to get behind this for our kids and some are getting a little stressed as support is not forthcoming.


Please help us and FOS to help your children!
