Reporoa College Market Day:

This Friday Reporoa College is hosting a Market Day to fundraise for making a positive change around Mahi Tahi. The fundraiser includes games, bake sale, BBQ, raffles, car wash and other activities. The students are running this and met with me during the week to request permission for our children to attend between 11am and 2pm. This is another great way for us to build relationships with the college. If your child comes with a few coins on Friday, we will escort them over in groups to visit and take part in this initiative.
