On Saturday 16th March, Pukekohe Christian School will hold their main fundraiser for the year – their popular annual Gala. Commencing at 8.30 with the garage sale and finishing at 1.30, the day offers fantastic bargains, food and fun for everyone in the family.
Located on Yates Road (past the railway station and behind the race course), PCS is a privately-funded Year 1 – 13 school which provides a safe, secure environment and an education from a Christian worldview. This is reflected at the Gala, when students and parents come together every year to put on this event for our community.
There’s plenty of action for kids of all ages from motor-bike & trailer rides to photo booths, corn in the hole and face painting. Other activities include laser tag, a fire display unit, mystery bottle and an obstacle bouncy castle.
On the other side of the school, bargain hunters will discover what they are looking for and more. In the classrooms you will find a gigantic garage sale offering all manner of items: kids’ toys, furniture, clothes, books and a varied range of other goodies sold at set prices.
After all the action, indulge yourself at one of the many food stalls or take a quiet seat in our café and enjoy a tea or coffee. When it comes to lunchtime, there is plenty to choose from at our wide range of international stalls (Asian, Peruvian, Indian, South African Wors Rolls and more) or stick with the kiwi classics – hot chips, burgers or barbecued sausages. Alternatively, take home fresh produce for dinner and something from the cake stall for dessert.
Thanks to our generous sponsors, running throughout the day there are raffles and auctions - both live and silent. There is a huge variety to bid on.
While all of this is happening, if you get the chance to have a break, head over to the entertainment area to watch Drapers Community Dance group, the School Choir and Heart of Worship perform.
So bring the kids along for a great family day out that everyone is sure to enjoy.
