It’s all hands on deck for Hawea Flat students as they prepare for their fourth Traditional Country Fun Fair on November 24. The children are hard at work preparing homemade items for their stalls including beeswax wraps, bath bombs and funky Christmas presents.
“We have absolutely loads of entertainment and tasty treats lined up,” said Emily Sancha from the PTA.
“We have Devonshire cream teas, white elephant, seedlings stalls, live music with Wanaka Ukuleles, coffee carts, funky handmade Christmas presents, candy floss fairies, ride-on lawnmowers that moonlight as Thomas the Tank Engine. There are even rumours of hobby horses.”
There will be a silent auction with fantastic items including a skydive and Wild Wire trip. During the afternoon, four of the bravest teachers will be auctioned off and the ones raising the highest bids will be dunked in the school pool in a specially constructed dunker...old-fashioned country fun at its finest.
Whatever floats your boat, you can bet there will be an option at the fair which is raising money for a new school hall. The old hall, Grandview, is too small with the burgeoning roll from a rapidly rising local population. The school fair will be an opportunity for the community to see the first design and provide feedback.
Everyone is invited to come and have fun; get in early on Christmas shopping with locally made items with all money going to a good cause. Saturday November 24, 10am - 2pm, Hawea Flat Primary, Camphill Road.
