School fair on Saturday

SHARE
Allenton School's Room 15 class of new entrants have collaborated to create this colourful artwork for the auction on Saturday.

There is something for everyone at this Saturday’s Allenton School fair.

The biennial event has a theme of Lights, Camera, Action and will feature a photo booth, bouncy castle, silent auction, food options and much more.

An entertainment stage will feature singers, dancers and a choir.

Lining up to go in the dunk tank on the day will be school principal Bruce Tilby and local MPs Andrew Falloon and Jo Luxton.

Other attractions include a mini digger, motorbike rides and a science showcase with live experiments.

Fair co-coordinator Pam Carr said Skydiving Kiwis would drop into the school grounds to open the fair at 11am.

She said there would be 18 class artworks auctioned off at the end of the event at 2pm and, in between, there were plenty of options to keep the whole family occupied.

There was also face painting and wacky hair options and students had also filled treasure jars for sale with a range of “goodies”.

A fairy would be “floating” around waving her magic wand and the fair was strictly cash only, said Mrs Carr.

Funds raised from the fair will be used to support playground upgrades at the school.
