Jenny Strachan, President of WGCA addressed the Students at Assembly today. Below is her message

I, and the WGCA would like to take the opportunity to thank all of the families and wider community who helped make our Gala a success this year.  I would also like to thank our Whānau teachers and all of the Waitaki Girls' students for your great projects at the Gala. It was fantastic to see your smiling faces.

I would also like to thank all of our businesses who helped sponsor us with their great raffle prizes. Our sponsors are as follows

Oamaru Vets - Major Sponsor


Soul Surf & Skate

Unichem Pharmacy


Paper Plus

North Otago Pharmacy

Peter Pan Bakery

Oamaru Blue Penguin Colony


Campbells Butchery

Delectables Bakery

Harbour Street Bakery


The focus for this years' Gala was to help fundraise to support any activities that enhance the lives of our students outside of the classroom such as sports, cultural events, and maintenance of the school grounds.

We raised approximately $12,000.00.   What an amazing achievement.

Thank you all again for your support, it is greatly appreciated. Have a great day

Jenny Strachan-WGCA President
