Staff and students of Ruru Specialist School held their annual market day in the school grounds yesterday.

Student Samantha Morton, 19, said the market was to raise money for the volunteer coastguard service.

"We have been organising it since the start of term. The money is going to the Bluff coastguard," she said.

Teacher Vicky McDonald said students had made a whole term effort with everyone in the school involved. It developed the money, budgeting and social skills of the students, she said.

The market was always supported with a massive turnout of parents and community members.

Christine Marsh, grandmother of one of the students, said: "I just think that it is great and they can all join in - family and friends."
