Dear Parents and Caregivers

Join Wainui School for our annual Quiz Night fundraiser. This year we have an Americana theme as we are celebrating the 4th of July early on Saturday 3rd July!

The Quiz night is one of the biggest nights for parents at Wainui School with space for 100 adults to dress up in theme and have a great night! Tickets cost $20 per person.

This year we have food available for pre-purchase from Morepork BBQ and you are welcome to bring your own drinks or purchase drinks on the night from Batch 10.

Ribs with Potato Salad $20

Pork Belly BLT $15

Housemade American Hotdog $10

Potato salad for $6

Smoked jackfruit & potato salad for $15

Thanks to the amazing JR (a Wainui Dad) and his company The Production Company we have an amazing MC Aaron Ward and DJ Ronni for a small part after the quiz has finished.

During the night we will auction some spectacular items that have been kindly donated from Local Businesses and the School Community. We also run a silent auction throughout the night for other donated items, we have over $5,000 of items donated from nights away, to art, to activity vouchers to restaurant vouchers.

It’s completely up to you if you want to dress up. Part of the fun for many teams is to go to great effort with their costumes and table theming! With this years’ theme being Americana, you could dress as famous Movie Stars, a pop icon, a president, country singer … a half completed wall…your imagination is the limit!

Doors open at 6:30pm with the quiz starting sharply at 7pm and if you’ve ever been to a pub quiz, you know what to expect. This one is just bigger and better! The team with the most points at the end of the night, wins the new, and hopefully coveted, Wainui School Quiz Night trophy and some other goodies.

To purchase tickets please email your name and number of tickets required to fows@wainui.school.nz. You may reserve a table of 10 through emailing fows@wainui.school.nz and then individual members can pay for their seats, rather than one person paying for the entire table up front. Payment can be made directly to the school or through Kindo.

While it is a school fundraiser and most people take the opportunity to spend quality time with /or get to know other Wainui Parents, you are welcome to fill your table with non-Wainui School friends, family, neighbours, whoever you wish (as long as they are over 18).  If you have a group of less than 10 people, you can still reserve a table and we can pop a few extra people on it to help you fill it up!

We also recommend you bring lots of gold coins. After each round of questions, tables are allowed to buy 2 answers for $2 each to help your score. We also run plenty of other gold coin donation games to keep you entertained during the night.

We look forward to seeing you at Quiz Night!
