Successful Garage Sale and Dove Derby!

Thank you to everyone for your efforts with the garage sale on Saturday. It was a tremendous event for our school community and a great opportunity to promote our school within the wider Dunedin community.

Message from Paul Richardson

“I would like to publicly acknowledge and thank our PFA members and all who contributed to this wonderful gathering last weekend. Not only was this an excellent way to profile our wonderful school but the event also raised $3,500 worth of funds. Sincere thanks also to Pesamino and the children for providing such spectacular entertainment in the form of Waiata, Sacred Music and Kapa Haka. I might also add that the White Dove Derby was responsible for $600 of the money raised! Congratulations to everyone who helped to make this day such a success.”

Thank you to all who entered our Dove Derby, Dove number 5 was the winner with a time of 13 minutes, 21 seconds!

Congratulations to:

  • 3rd Place – Lynda Wall – with a guess of 12 minutes.

Thank you!

Thank you again for supporting Sacred Heart School, to those who organised the event, and to everyone who helped, donated goods or participated in any way. A huge thanks to White Doves Dunedin for kindly donating the Doves and to the Dunedin Collaboration Against Family Violence for the use of their bouncy castle.

We hope to make the garage sale an annual event, so keep this in mind when you’re having a clear out next Spring!
