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.”

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.
