Wow, what a fantastic Sunday we have just had. Our annual Opua School Regatta was a joyful event that was very well attended and superbly organised.

Central to the success of the day was our wonderful PTA parent helpers. A special mention must go to Ben who worked tirelessly in co-ordinating this, our school’s main fundraiser. I want to unreservedly thank him and all the other wonderful parent helpers who invested so much of their own time into supporting the school and this important event. You are all very much appreciated. My thanks also to the teachers who supported the PTA 100% in all their efforts.

There were many fun events and, this year, a particular thank you to Opua Cruising Club for organising a sailing regatta in the afternoon for our young, wannabe sailors. [Big thanks to Gary Hack], to our mayor the Honourable John Carter QSO for being such an excellent MC of the event and, as always, to our very many wonderful sponsors without whom this event would not be possible. Many thanks for your generosity.
