House captains leadership Excellence post 1

Today it was the bake sale and all of the year 8's had to bring in some baking to get some money off there bill for our school camp trip to Wellington, All the house captains set up  the tables and severed the kids it was great fun to see all the children wanting to buy something, we raised just under $900 dollars.
