Don't miss a truly amazing fundraising event held in the heart of Matakana. The Matakana School Gala is held every Labour weekend for well over 10 years is a wonderful family event and a bargain hunters dream!

Our entire 'old hall' is transformed to a clothing store, two class rooms full of electrical items, a huge yard sale takes up two netball courts and half our new hall is our book fair, and the other a yummy cafe. Other specialty stalls include a whole area with retro bric a brac pieces, a quality store, toys and a huge silent auction.

Don't forget to eneter our brand new Matakana Mastercake cake decorating competition. Get your entry form at the school office on 422 7309 or on online at

Be tempted by our bake stall or try our homemade mussel fritters or burgers, bacon & egg butties, hot chips and sausage sizzles! Sit down and relax at the One Day Cafe with baking from our parent community.

Throughout the day our main entertainment stage will feature local artists such as LouLou, Whitewash, The Highly Strung Ukeladies and our very own talented kapa haka and choir group. There'll also be some acts from Matakana School children and buskers entertaining throughout the school.

Our sports fields are transformed into an children's entertainment extravaganza! Bouncy castles, vertical bungy, water walkers, rock wall, eliminator slide and traditional games like crockery smash & coconut shy. Go crazy in our ‘Funky Salon’ – face painting, make up done by a 'Sticky TV' make up artist, temporary tattoos, nail polish & hairdressing booth and more... It's a fun place to be! The Candy Castle will feature many delicious delights.

This year we are fundraising for a state of the art library information centre to be incorporated into our existing library.
