Paddy’s Mart 2015
Te Horo School’s major fundraiser is on Saturday, 12th September. Look out for their new cafe, ‘Latin Americana Cantina,’ which will be serving nachoes and quesadillas. Te Horo School can be relied on to produce amazing fairs, a mixture of traditional and fun ideas and games plus the usual stalls.
You’ll be able to leave your car at the gate,where it will be washed and parked while you wander amongst stalls of fresh produce, home-baking, sweets, plants, crafts, bric-a-brac and preloved books and toys. Kids can enjoy face painting and crazy hair, little digger, pony rides, petting zoo and a commando course while you take in the sounds of local band, Malted Milk and guests, great food and maybe win one of the many raffles, “a fun-filled day for everyone, young and old.”
