GALA UPDATE 2 weeks to go!

GALA UPDATE no. 7  -  2 weeks to go!

Thank you once again for all the support we are getting from our school community. It has been really fantastic.
Great news for Buzzy Bee fans…. Buzzy Bee will be visiting our gala and you can have a ride around the field in Buzzy Bee! (Weather dependent). For you Sporting and Golfing fans, SNAG Golf will be at the Gala too. Both of these attractions will be found on the back field near the netball courts. We may even have a fire engine there too!
This week we would like to acknowledge the following companies:
  • Salvation Army who has donated a lot of chipped crockery to be used in the Crockery Smash game.
  • Bee Friendly Gardens (Sarah Lenton) for donating various plants and bromeliads to be sold at the Plant Stall
  • Seaside Grill Restaurant in Orewa who have donated a voucher to be used in one of the raffles.
Ray White Manly are holding a Charity Auction for us at the Gala as well as sponsoring the Sausage Sizzle. We would like to acknowledge the following businesses who have kindly donated items or services for the Auction:
Manly Pricecutter, Dave Brock Motors and Tyres, Mitre 10 Whangparaoa, Mike Butt Collision, Bottle O Manly, Ripples Café, Local Café, Avenue Hair Studio Manly, Barry’s Supperette Gulf Harbour, Manly Chemist, Eddie Law Whangaparaoa, Navarjo Hair Design, Whangaparaoa Golf Club, Manly Village Butchery, Fitter Faster Stronger Gym Stanmore Bay, Washing Well, Bach 54, Maison Thai, Snapper Scaffold, Hoyts Whangaparaoa, Manly Fruit and Veg, Indian Village, Manly Bar and Grill, Bronz Hair Design Gulf Harbour and Portofino Massage Manly.
It is going to be an exciting Auction so make sure you don't miss it. We will announce the time the auction will be held in next week’s update.
At this point we have just 2 stalls left that could be sponsored by your business: they are Bacon Butties ($360) and Toasted Sandwiches ($150). If your company would like to sponsor one of these stalls, please email Nicki on leenickirobertson@me.com. Thank you.
What’s On:
Drop off for Gala donations is on Tuesday mornings from 8:30am in Room 4, and on Saturday 25th October 2pm – 4pm. Please clear out your cupboards for toys, games, clothes, small items of furniture etc. (all in good, clean and working order please.)
Freaky Friday Mufti Day 24th October: come dressed crazily or colourfully (like our Gala Posters).  Instead of a gold coin donation we will be requesting a $2.00 item that can be used as prizes in our games at the Gala.  For example: erasers, stickers, balls, lollies, chocolates, etc.  Only 1 item per family is necessary. Thank you for your support with this.
How You can Help:
We are looking for white or cream fabric that can be used to make bunting, so if you have any please contact Jayne Shaw -  shaw.jayne@gmail.com  before Friday.
Thank you to all those people who have volunteered to help on the day or before hand. You should have been contacted by now. We still need volunteers to help with some of the games so if you have an hour or 2 to spare on the day of the Gala and would like to be involved, or would like to volunteer your partner/husband/wife, please email Jayne Shaw on shaw.jayne@gmail.com. Thank you.
