Waipu Primary is a small rural school (approx 220 pupils) that would never be able to create such an amazing event without the incredible support that we receive from the wider community that we are so lucky to be a part of. Traditionally the Waipu Primary School PTA held a number of small fundraising events throughout the year which was a busy and time consuming task. The decision was made to concentrate on one BIG fundraiser! So in 2010, the first annual Waipu Easter Carnival was held.
The Carnival was a great success and has now become a major community event for Waipu as well as a fantastic fundraiser for the school.
Among other things, proceeds from the past have helped fund the school multipurpose hall, scooter and bike track, bike shed, the adventure playground, the new sandpit area and surrounds, new computers for the computer room, plants and trees for the school property, sports equipment, Ipads and other resources for all the classrooms.
Our school and community are amazing lets make this year bigger and better Waipu!
