Ahuroa School Feast, Fair and Fireworks – 2019 (Planning)

We need people passionate about their children and the local school
We’re looking for authentic ideas to include everyone in the community
We need people that are resilient and can persevere in order to achieve the schools targets
Above all we need people that are happy to explore all options, be open to discussion and then drive the passion on to our FAIR, FEAST AND FIREWORKS!

WE NEED YOU!!!

Yes, we are doing a feast again – and an amazing community event that will be a good afternoons entertainment for the whole family. There will be huge involvement of the children this time – its THEIR school after all.

The basic ideas are in place, the basic team already exists – we know what work needs to be done BUT we need YOUR help! We need new ideas! Nothing is too small, or too inadequate. Everyone has something to add, something to give – it does not need to be large amounts of money. An hour volunteering costs nothing but time and could go so far to help the school.

Of course we need prizes, money to pay for items that we need to hire and goods to sell, make up or use as part of something bigger for the fair. Anything at all would be helpful at this stage.

We’re hoping to do a laser light display rather than the fireworks, because of all the livestock in our community. Do you know of anyone, who knows someone who could do this, or who we could contact with regards to a laser light show? We’d love to hear from you for any help, suggestions, donations or new ideas.

With the Summer holidays coming up we aren’t going to plague for all sorts of things right now, but would ask that if you have any ideas, or items that you think could be useful for the school to use keep our fair in mind. The new school year will roll round so quickly and we will be full on into the school, its events, its work and of course the fair.

Plant the seed now and by January we may have some real plans to move forward with.

Ahuroa Primary School has always been a community school – its been around for generations and many many of the residents in Puhoi and Ahuroa and surrounds will have attended the school in their day. Lets give a little back to the school and make this fair the best one yet!

Past pupils – we’d love to hear from you and what you could offer 😊

For now we’d like to wish you all a Merry and Blessed Festive Season and a Happy New Year.

Please make contact with office@ahuroa.school.nz if you can help! – Thank you.

Kind regards

Ahuroa School Pool Keys

Yes, believe it or not, we are ready to start our swimming season.

The wonderful BOT have installed solar heating to the pool, and we will be opening the pool for summer use from the beginning of the September School Holidays. Imagine that – summer coming early!

Get in early and get real value for your money.

Pool keys will be $90 (plus a $10 bond) for this season, September to April. What amazing value! To make it easier for families we will be allowing families to set up a payment plan of $15 per month for 6 months.

If you would like a pool key before the holidays start, contact Christine in the office by Friday 28th on 422 5898 or email office@ahuroa.school.nz
