Dance-a-thon Fundraiser

posted in: Events News, News

Kia Ora,
The Parents and Friends of Te Huruhi School are pleased to announce the first student-led fundraiser for our new playgrounds, the Te Huruhi Dance-a-thon 2019, along with the launch of our new Give A Little page!
On Friday 31 May, 2019, at 11.30 am our tamariki will dance for 20 straight minutes – Jump Jam through to freestylin’ it- and we ask those that are willing and able to help out by sponsoring them. Whether it’s $0.50cper minute or $5.00 per minute, we’d love each of our students’ hard (foot!) work to be supported.

To help make everything smoother for all of our fundraising events, including this one, we’ve created a Give A Little page for Te Huruhi, and one specifically for the Dance-a-thon, through which your child(s) can set up their own donor site to make publicity and collecting of sponsorship safer and easier than handling cash. It also allows you to put links to their page on your FB, Instagram and email accounts. We will, of course, continue to accept cash sponsorship with great joy!

We’ll be having a school-wide sausage sizzle and bake sale immediately following the Dance-a-thon so all baking gratefully received on the day, and any volunteers for the BBQ stations also much appreciated.
Attached below is a “how to” for setting up a Give A Little page on behalf of your child(s). If you have any further questions please do email us or ask your child’s class representative.

Thanks so much for supporting our school and students, we really appreciate it, and if you would like to know more
about how you can help us, please send us an email.


Nga mihi,

Parents and Friends of Te Huruhi Committee
