As the biggest event of its kind in New Zealand, the SKY TV Special Children’s Christmas Parties in association with NZME aim to put a smile on the faces of special needs children. This year Elite students were part of the fun with face painting and manicure tables proving very popular.
The event was held on Saturday 24 November, and around 2000 children attended. Eight Elite students and their Elite trainer, Cinda were involved and gained valuable experience from the day. Cinda said, “Ensuring that each child had a memorable day was extremely important to all the students. We were so busy and we all loved participating so much the students have asked to be involved again next year.”
Elite student Rita Geard said, “We loved being involved in the SKY TV children’s charity event. It was an amazing experience using our skills to help put some smiles on children’s faces. We all felt very privileged to be involved in the event”.
