Aloha College pupils, together with their siblings, parents, cousins and friend enjoyed an extra-special day out on Saturday. Parents may have had to get up earlier than usual for a weekend, but they were greeted by our lovely PTA mums and dads on the coffee and cake stall, where they could recharge themselves before taking part in the sports and fun games. The little ones had a whale of a time on the adventure playground, had their faces painted and watched in awe while the animators tied balloons in the shape of any known or unknown animal. Mr and Mrs Scariolo, president and vice-president of the charity in aid of which the event was held as well as being Aloha parents, joined in the general fun. Exhausted parents and children were then able to sit in the shade for lunch and chat with their friends, or mingle and make new friends. We’ll be repeating next year!
