Light Festival 2018

We are excited to be once again organising the Light Festival which will take place on Saturday 23rd June 2018. As always there will be a lantern walk, food stalls, a school shop, music and more!

The school will be a hive of activity over the next two months as we start preparations for another successful festival. This page will keep you updated with the latest festival news and preparation workshops that will be running at the school. If you have any queries or questions please don't hesitate to contact Natalie at the school office (09) 4077834 or

How can you help?

Many hands make light work! The success of the festival relies on the generous support of our whanau volunteers. We will need help with preparations before the festival, on the night and clean-up afterwards. Please indicate on the form below how your family can help.

Can you donate to our raffle prizes?

We would appreciate any donations (big or small!) that you could contribute to our raffle prizes. These can be dropped into the box in the school office or alternatively, we can collect by arrangement. Please call or email the school office.

Upcoming Workshops

These five workshops are for families (adults and children), after school to help with preparations. These provide an opportunity for our community to learn new skills. Workshops are held from 3-4pm (please bring afternoon tea for your child). Please note that all children must have an adult with them.
