Gala day

Matakana School's major fundraiser - The Matakana School Gala.  Don’t miss a truly amazing fundraising event held in the heart of Matakana - the Matakana School Gala. This event is held every Labour weekend for well over 20 years and coincides with many other special events happening in the area during that time.

Our gala is a wonderful family event and a treasure hunter's dream! There are so many stalls to visit including our huge yard sale which takes over our netball courts, two classrooms full of clothing and linen, a special art gallery filled with special retro/unique pieces, half our hall full of books, plants and produce stalls, two classrooms full of toys, a room filled with 'quality' pieces and special nic nacs and a huge area filled with bric a brac items and much more!

After all that treasure hunting you'll be ready to sit down and enjoy our main stage entertainment which will have an array of talent from Matakana School as well as local artists. Sit awhile, enjoy the entertainment and feast on delights made specially by our very own Matakana School foodies - gourmet burgers, mexican stall and sandwiches, waffles, fair food like sausage sizzle and bacon butties and lots more.

A children's entertainment extravaganza on our back field includes traditional games like Coconut Shy and an array of other entertainment including horizontal bungy, the "Terminator", Disneyland bouncy castle,  and so much more.

The doors open at 10.00am. For more information including stage entertainment or busking around our school, food or children's entertainment email our gala administration team on
