Fun way to help kids' learning
Hot chips and a sausage sizzle laid the foundation for a quintessential Kiwi school fair in Spring Creek on Saturday.
From bouncy castles to face painting, the Spring Creek School Fair ticked all the right boxes for excited youngsters.
However, organisers stepped it up a gear with the addition of Monster Truck rides and regular dance shows by Spring Creek's own Dance Star Academy, throughout the day.
And mums and dads were only too happy to meander around a host of other stalls, offering treats from homemade cupcakes to roast meat sandwiches.
The fete was held to raise money for new iPads for pupils and to provide teacher aid in the school's entrance class.
Spring Creek School Fair co-ordinator Nina Bryce said the teacher's assistant would focus on the children's reading and writing skills.
Everybody seemed to have a good time, Mrs Bryce said.
