Important Art Show and Auction information. Starts from 4pm tomorrow in the school hall!

Dear Parents and Whanau,

Below is all the info you need to know for our Art Show and Auction that kick off from tomorrow afternoon in our school hall.

As I said last week, the funds raised by our biannual art event support the arts in your children's lives and illustrate our commitment to creating a school environment that is rich in arts and culture. We want to ensure that every child has the opportunity to learn about, enjoy, and participate directly in all forms of the arts.

It's shaping up to be a fantastic event, and we greatly appreciate the support from both our wonderful organising team, and also all of you who will come along over the next three days to check out and purchase some amazing art.

The range is incredible, and there is certainly something to suit all tastes and budgets, so make sure you don't miss out on the opportunity to buy something special, while supporting our wonderful school.

Looking forward to seeing you there,

Ngā manaakitanga,

Deborah Fenton Island Bay School, Principal
