Raumati South School has won the People’s Choice Award at the Ellerslie International Flower Show.
There is only one of these awards based on popular vote. Earlier this week it was announced the school — the first to enter the Ellerslie Show — had won a Silver medal.
“This is fantastic news,” says Kapiti Coast District Mayor Jenny Rowan.
“This is a small school that has shown it can. It’s an example of what children are capable of with the support of their teachers and school community. We are so proud as a Council to have supported this great effort.”
The Council granted Raumati School $10,000 to help fund its Ellerslie project.
