Takapuna Grammar School is very pleased to have many of its students involved with and supporting the Takapuna Beach Business Association Christmas Carnival on Saturday 10th December from 11am until 4pm. 

The Bandwagon Stage will be parked in Hurstmere Road and will host a variety of acts during the day. From 3pm some very talented Takapuna Grammar School students will take to the stage with a melody of entertainment for the crowd's enjoyment.

The acts will include the School Symphonic Brass Band playing some Christmas favourites, drama students performing an excerpt from The End of the Golden Weather called 'Christmas at Te Parenga’, which is about Bruce Mason’s time living by Takapuna Beach, and a performance from TGS rock band, Shed.

There will be a range of student-produced goods for sale at the Christmas Market, including offerings from TGS's Young Enterprise Groups. The group Half Baked will be bringing their cookie jar mixes (including a new limited edition Christmas variety!) and Burgundy will be selling their recycled wine barrel cheese boards and wine bottle holders. We will also have scented candles, pin board art and plant jars to make your Christmas shopping a delight.

TGS student-led environment group will be holding their termly beach clean-up at the Takapuna Beach just in time for the event.

Let's hope lots of people will be there to enjoy the beach, the range of products the talented students have produced and the wealth of performing art talent from the school.
