Torrential rain failed to dampen the enthusiasm of scores of eager Easter egg hunters at Horizon School in Snells Beach for their recent Easter Eggstravaganza fundraiser.
Food and raffle stalls were relocated undercover, but the obstacle course and egg hunts went ahead outside as planned, with no one appearing to mind the wet weather. The rain didn’t damage any chocolate eggs either, as students hunted for plastic bread tags hidden in a big bank of agapanthus plants, which they then exchanged for eggs from PTA members.
PTA chairperson Sally Carstensen said more than $1200 was raised, which will go towards buying more musical instruments for the school.
“We had some great feedback, with children saying they had a great a time, and they couldn’t believe grown-ups would stand out in the rain just for them to have fun. It was lovely,” she said.
Lucky Josh Whitelegg found the top prize in the Easter egg hunt – a big gold bunny.
