Gumboot Friday

Thu Nov 04 03:47pm

Hi Everone,

Reminder to send the children to school in/with their gumboots tomorrow for our 1km walk around the township for Gumboot Friday!

If your whanau is interested and has the time, you could bake a cake to be auctioned on Facebook during the day, or you could bring a gold coin donation to school on Friday. (there is no pressure or expectation for either of these.) All donations collected will be sent directly to Gumboot Friday.
