School Fair

Maungawhau School Fair

The 2020 School Fair has now been cancelled!
Due to the ongoing uncertainty around Alert levels in the Auckland region relating to the Covid-19 pandemic, we have made the decision to cancel the 2020 Maungawhau School Fair.
We appreciate all the support we have received to date and look forward to seeing everyone in 2021.
We are holding an alternative fundraising activity being an Online Auction which will commence on 14th October 2020.

Days until our school fair....

We look forward to hosting another School Fair for our community in 2021.

For nearly 80 years, our annual Fair has been a proud Maungawhau School tradition It is a highlight of the local communities calendar, attracting thousands of attendees.


A fantastic day out for the whole family, the fair has something for every age and interest – from gourmet snacks to the classic sausage sizzle and hot chips, games and bouncy castles to entertain the kids, student performances and amazing bargains on quality second-hand clothing, books, homeware, toys and much more!


All proceeds from the Fair will go towards learning resources for Maungawhau School students.


Whilst one of the outcomes of the day is on fundraising for the school, we are also very focused on supporting the community and the environment. As such we do not discount any products during the day. Any unsold goods are donated to a variety of charities and schools at the conclusion of the fair. We also have one class (supported by their classroom teacher and parents) who take responsibility for rubbish & recycling on the day of the fair to ensure all compostable and recyclable waste is separated from landfill. This initiative introduced a few years ago has seen landfill waste reduced significantly.


We are grateful for the ongoing sponsorship provided by Barfoot & Thomspon Mt Eden.

Our 2020 Fair Sponsors

The generous contributions of businesses play an important part in making our 2020 fair a success.

There are various ways to support our school or sponsoring our School Fair. If you are interested in becoming a Fair sponsor please contact the Fair Committee.

Class Stall Allocations

Every classroom is allocated a stall for our school fair. It is then run by 1-2 parents of that class as stallholders. Every family in that class supports the stallholder with preparation in the lead up to the fair as well in running the stall on  fair day. It is up to our parents to host the fair for our community.
