By MICHELE ONG A Kaipara Flats School fundraiser which had corrugated iron pukeko holding Warkworth businesses ransom has resulted in $3255 for the school. The pukeko appeared on Warkworth business doorsteps and were removed for a small donation. Funds go toward buying new computer equipment. It s not easy to come up with new fundraising, especially for small rural schools, so it was great to find some- thing new and fun, Kaipara Flats School principal Cameron Lockie says. He says the school s Parent Teacher Association, in particular president Maria Schollum and member Caroline Hood, tried a new idea which Wark- worth businesses have supported with very generous donations and a sense of humour. Thank you to everyone who got into the fundraising spirit, Mr Lockie says. More than 90 businesses participated in the pukeko game. Some pukeko appeared on doorsteps in a variety of fashions -- handcuffed, dressed up, bandaged, and one had hair. The pukeko visited shops, workshops, medical centres, lawyers, police, cafes, the Rodney Times Wark- worth office, and even the undertakers. The eight fake pukeko were later auctioned at the school s show day, raising another $800 for the school. The South Kaipara branch of a home-based education programme has made Parakai School its new home. Hippy -- Home Interaction Pro- gramme for Parents and Youngsters -- is an education programme encourag- ing parents to be actively involved in their children s learning. It was work- ing out of Helensville Primary School s renovated hall before the move. The Parakai School staff and chil- dren have been very supportive and helpful, Hippy co-ordinator Bernie Malizia says. Parakai teacher Jackie Silby has been a strong supporter for many years. Just by working together on the Hippy activities for 15 to 20 minutes each day, parents give their children quality time as well as giving them a great start to their education, Bernie says. Enrolments for 2011 are open at end of this year through to the beginning of next year. Children must be aged three and four as of March 2011 to be eligible.
