Ahuroa Hall and Ahuroa School Combined Horse Trek Fundraiser February 2020

Hey everyone!

A really happy New Year to you all.

Our much enjoyed Community Hall and School fundraiser is back again on Saturday 21st and Sunday 22nd February.  The two day horse trek is based at the Berger Farm on Komokoriki Hill Road, and rides over several local farms.

The registrations and the trek logistics are taken care of, what we need now is help with the catering.  We have 4 meals to cater for over the weekend – 2 lunches, 1 dinner, and 1 breakfast.  The lower we can keep our costs, the more we will be able to fundraise.

There are 5  ways you can contribute:

  1. Make and deliver slices or biscuits for the horse rider’s lunches and desert on the Saturday night.  We need approx 15 slices / biscuits that can travel, and 8 brownie / pie type desserts for the Saturday night
  2. Make and deliver salads / other tasty dishes for the Saturday night dinner at the Komokoriki Hill Road Woolshed
  3. Donate meat or fresh eggs (sliced for filled rolls, and hot for Saturday night dinner)
  4. Donate cash to help pay for groceries / toilet hire / spit hire etc
  5. Donate your time!  We need 4-5 adults working out of our kitchen and woolshed on both the Saturday (8am – 8pm) and Sunday (6am – 1pm)

Let’s work together to give our kids an amazing education, keep our historic hall thriving, and have a bit of fun while we are at it.

If you could email / text me your contribution –  whatever it is will be very much appreciated!

Ahuroa School – It’s happening!

Dear community,

Today sees the start of our building project. Hopefully as you drive past you will see lots of action and the preparation works for demolition.  We know that there will be some disruption to the community with trucks and cranes and a lot more cars at the hall, however we will try to minimise the impact of this as much as possible, and thank everyone in advance for their patience during this exciting time for our fabulous school.

The programme that we have tentatively put in place looks like this:

This week- 13-19th January – Temporary fencing up. Temporary toilet block in place, drainage works to prep for water tank and toilet block, prep work for demolition.

Next week – 20-27th January – Demolition works. This includes the demolition of our asbestos clad classroom. We have been advised that this will not impact on the availability of the swimming pool. However, please be advised that all school buildings are out of action. The temporary toilet block, which will be for use of the pool users too, will be placed on the field and needs to be accessed via the outdoor classroom only.

Last week of January: Preparation begins for the new buildings, i.e breaking concrete, building retaining walls, etc. This will take about 6 weeks.

We hope that by the first week of March we will be in a position to let you know when the new buildings will be arriving. They will come in the dead of the night and be hoisted onto their footings with a massive crane.

I will keep you as informed of the process along the way.

Ka kite ano


Kind regards
