Our Gala Committee

A message from our Gala Committee

Held in the first term of each year, the St Mary’s School Gala is the biggest fundraising event
on our school calendar. It’s a popular community event, “world famous in South Auckland”.
The Gala committee is made up of an enthusiastic, dedicated and engaged group of parents,
committed to delivering a successful Gala day. Planning for the Gala starts in August each
year and it’s a wonderful way to be involved, meet other parents and reaffirm our faith with
the act of service. There are many ways to help – new faces and fresh ideas are always
welcome. If you would like to be involved, but are unsure how, or have any questions,
please email: galapr@stmaryspapakura.school.nz

We hope you can join us. All are welcome.
