Vintage vehicles and live music helped Auckland Point School raise about $7000 to upgrade facilities that are shared by the greater community.

Parent Teacher Association member Lynet Craig said she was thrilled with the number of people who attended the school's Heart of the Haven Summerfest last night. She said many did not have a formal link to the school, and simply wished to join in the fun.

"We were really pleased with how many people came along and supported us."

The festival featured live music from The Uklectics and Suzi Fray from all-girl Johnny Cash tribute band The Johnnys, as well as a miniature train, bouncy castle, zorb balls and more. Mrs Craig said the food was also well-received.

Rides on a vintage BMW motorcycle sidecar were popular, with motorcylist Steven Scullion giving his young passengers an exhilarating trip around the school playing fields.

The funds raised from Auckland Point School's major annual fundraiser will go towards upgrading its school pool and hall facilities.
