Event review: Waitati School fair in December

Face painting, clothes, jewellery, food, play dough, horse riding, race
cars, plants, homemade baking, cleaning products, horizontal bungy
jumping, magic shows and musicians, ice-cream, a cycle that grinds coffee
and even scarecrow making. If all this was too much and you just needed a
break there was even a café. All this was at the Waitati primary school
fair that held at the local school last Sunday.

For a dollar you could make your own scarecrow which was then put put in the
community garden at the school. The gardeners use the produce to make a
healthy lunch every Friday for the students.

The café provided training for the older students of the school to
teach them about waiting tables , dealing with money and customer
service.The students sold baked goods that they had made.

The café's profits are being put towards the older students' end of year
activity which this year involves going out for dinner, followed by
paintball and surfing.
