Christmas Parade 2016; ‘Under the Sea’.

Wow, what an amazing Friday – a wonderful, joyful parade ending with…first place and a trophy for the Community Float category in the annual Christmas Parade! There are simply just too many people to thank but a particular mention must go to Michele Wilson, Tui’s mummy, for being our inspiration. You drove this and we thank you deeply for all your time and effort. Much appreciation must also go to the Bay of Islands College students who came with you to school on a number of occasions to help you design and assemble our incredible interpretation of ‘Under the Sea’.

Many thanks also to all our wonderful sponsors and suppliers of materials, to Paul for driving the float, to our PTA for your support with the float and the barbecue and to all the parents and caregivers who chipped in and prepared their children for this memorable float around Paihia.

Finally, well done to our children – you were incredible. You were creative, full of Christmas cheer and you clearly had a great time. It was the best attended parade that I have attended and you should all be very proud of yourselves and your school.

Here are some pictures to enjoy…
