Senior Camp Fundraiser for Karāpiro School

Karapiro, Waikato

Kia ora,

The seniors at Karāpiro School need help to get to camp! We're a little school looking for a chance to do something big. Being small is our super power but sometimes that means that our school whānau don't always have the same opportunities as other schools. We want to change that.

My name is Dan and I'm a second year teacher at Karāpiro School. I love my job and the rewarding feeling that comes with supporting our tamariki to become strong and successful individuals. In my short time as a qualified teacher, I have been blown away by how resilient, adaptable and accepting our children are. That's why I think that we deserve to a chance to experience the joys of a camp just like many other schools around Aotearoa.

When I think of the core memories of my own personal childhood and schooling, camp sits above all else. To me, it is where so many of my most important friendships were forged and the highlight reel of growing up was compiled. It’s a true kiwi classic. During school camps, we learnt invaluable lessons, took part in opportunities that I’d never had before and, most importantly, had lots of fun. I could not find a group of children, nor school, that deserves an opportunity to participate in an end of year school camp more than this one.

To support our fundraising effort, I'm even offering to cut my flowing locks if we reach our goal!

Please consider donating any small amount that you can, it all helps! Thank you so much for your time and consideration.
