2012 Term 1 Week 5 - Purple Cake Day

This week we held our first school wide fundraiser.

Our school took part in the global Purple Cake Day and raised $194 - which is an amazing effort from 48 students!

Children and staff came dressed in purple and donated a gold coin  towards the mufti day. Our students also researched, planned and created smoothies, cakes and goodies to sell to their friends on the day.
The purpose of Purple Cake Day is to raise awareness of global issues in education and this year our focus was on Nepal. Our students researched the types of lifestyle and education in Nepal and compared and contrasted that with their lives and education in New Zealand. Some examples of their research can be seen in the studios and in the latest newsletter. Studio 3 also wrote, recorded and submitted a song for Purple Cake Day!

We held our first parent information evening this week and it was fabulous to see so many of our parents come along to visit the studios with their children. We hope you found the information useful and welcome any further questions, ideas or comments you may have.
