The Central Challenge

  • Nelson Central School 70 Nile Street Nelson, Nelson, 7010 New Zealand (map)

Forget about cake stalls and Jumble sales- Nelson Central School has come up with a new idea for fundraising that promises to offer exercise, teamwork and a whole lot of fun.
The Central challenge is a Rogaine and Mini Gala. It will be a day packed with family fun, spot prizes, stalls, games and activities. The main event is the first ever Central Challenge Rogaine.
What is a Rogaine? well, (aside from a hair loss remedy) Its a bit like a treasure hunt really:

* Participants get a map and questions.
* Each Question has a number which relates to a point on the map.
* Answers to the questions are revealed at the location marked on the map
* You need to visit the locations and answer as many questions as possiblein the time allowed.
* Points are taken off for every minute you go over time and for incorrect answers.
* Some Questions are worth more points, ( depending on how difficult they are to reach)
* The Aim is to find as many answers as you can before time runs out.
There are two courses: one designed for fun with families and younger children and a more challenging course for children over 12 and experienced rogainers.
After the challenge, spot prizes and raffles will be drawn.

The Central Challenge also offers a Mini gala with food stalls, games and activities and a white Elephant stall for bargain hunters.

This is really a fun day out for families and a fun way to raise money: to build a Whare/ shelter for outdoor assemblies as we no longer have a school hall; for digital devices for class rooms and to help Te Pouahi to raise money for the Kapa Haka Nationals.
We really want to invite the whole community along, its not just a school event.

Registration will be on the day from 11am.
Individual entry $5
Family entry $15
