Whakapau kaha – to be better than before.

The Fiesta is a take on the old-time carnival that CPDS used to hold… with some modern twists of course! There are plenty of ways you can get involved, and we would love you to come with all the family on the big day.


The organising committee are always grateful for any help you can give. If you have any spare time over the coming few weeks, please click here to get in touch! We are still looking for people to help on the day – either running a stall, helping for a couple of hours on the day, or help with set up/pack down. Email


We are still collecting auction/raffle items… Thank you to those who have contributed so far! Please email us if you or someone you know has any auction items they would like to donate –


In the early days of CPDS a carnival was not complete without some good healthy competition. We want you to come and join the fun! Three-legged races, egg and spoon (eggs modified for allergy and wastage reasons), sack races etc. These will be happening across the day – everyone is welcome to compete and glory is at stake! A race schedule will be available the week before the big day.

Another two events that have been noted in the archives that we hope to repeat this year is eating Donuts on a string with no hands and a wheel’s parade.   Previously the boys decorated their bikes and the girls decorated their prams.  But this year you can choose what wheels you would like to decorate and we look forward to seeing you in the parade to end the fiesta.


As part of the fundraising effort, we will be selling ‘Fun Jars’. These are a recycled jar or a container (eg: jam jar) which children fill with ‘treasures’ from home, and contribute for sale at the Fiesta. We would love your children to fill a jar and bring it to school! What counts as ‘treasure’ is up to you! The jars could be filled with stationery, painted rocks, marbles, balloons, bubble mixture, sweets, stickers, beads, small cars etc. Filled jars can be delivered to the office from this week onwards. Please be extra vigilant to ensure that jars are well cleaned before filling.


Please copy this and share with all your family, friends and colleagues.
