Chocolate and Soap sales

The Rāroan —

Money is starting to pour in for the sales of both chocolate and soap. Thank you to all of you helping your young people to raise money for the school. We really appreciate it.

All cash collected is to be brought to the library before school. For every box sold, your child goes into the draw for The Chase competition at chocolate assemblies. Their name stays in the draw for the whole length of the competition - until Friday 26 May. Students whose parents have made a donation also go into the draw. Teachers will draw for any child who is absent for the draw. 

The 3 top individual and class prize winners will be announced at assembly after selling is finished.

Individual Prizes: There will be a number of prizes that may include a combination of the following: An Acer laptop, JBL Bluetooth Speakers, Skullcandy earphones, Huawei smart watch, Lenovo tablet, Kobo eReader, sports equipment and vouchers.

Class Prize: Paid for shared lunch

If you would prefer to pay for the chocolate or soap online, please either pay into the school account (12-3223-0077412-00) making sure you add your child's name and CHOC or email office@raroa.school.nz to say you would like to pay via Kindo.

Each afternoon students will be given the opportunity to collect an additional box of chocolates to sell and therefore enter the draw again. Unfortunately, we have currently run out of boxes of soap. If you really want soap please email Clare at c.forrest@raroa.school.nz and she will put you on the waiting list.

We are likely to run out of chocolate to hand out very soon too. If you have chocolate at home that you don't think you can sell please return it to school (along with any money collected) so those who are extremely keen to sell chocolate can have access to it.

And just a reminder - each box of chocolate contains 36 Whittaker’s SLABS (Peanut, Creamy Milk, Hokey Pokey, Toasted Coconut and Almond Gold) and each box of soap contains 24 bars of Ecostore soap (Lemongrass). Students may sell both chocolate and soap. Each of the bars of chocolate will sell for $2; each of the bars of soap will sell for $2.50. Therefore, the total price of the box of chocolate is $72 and the box of soap is $60.
