TWO boys won more cake than they could eat at their school fair in Karori.

Jamon Peatters and Nick Cook won the cake made and donated by a fellow student’s grandfather and raffled at the Karori West Normal School fair.

Nick said he was getting his mother to pick them up so they could get the cake home safely.

Principal Janice Shramka says the school raised $20,000 to go towards the resurfacing of the basketball court, although some expenses are still to be paid.

“It was a wonderful community event and it was wonderful to see so many people there,” she says.

“We were really pleased that we raised approximately what we raised last year and given the economic situation” she says.

Mrs Shramka made her annual appearance dressed-up as Spongebob Squarepants the cartoon character.

“I thought it went extremely well, it was a wonderful community event and it was wonderful to see so many people there. People didn’t seem to want to go home, 2 o’clock came and went and there was still plenty of people.”

A cartoon character wasn’t the only guest at the fair.

The Wellington City Wolves turned up for a few games of tug of war and the students put in a big tug effort with help from little wolf and Karori West student James Kent-Wilson.
