MANY FLAVOURS: Pupils of multicultural primary school Clyde Quay

IF you love food, then the Clyde Quay School Carnival was the place to be on Saturday.

It is the school’s annual fundraiser and parents worked hard to make sure the kids have a ball at this year’s event.

Organising committee member Michelle Vaughan said last year’s food festival for the Mt Victoria school was a hit, so they have decided to make food the main focus this year.

“We haven’t done one quite like this. We have done a gala and then we have done food, we haven’t done the big combination,” Ms Vaughan said.

There was a “huge” range of ethnic foods.

“There were Indian and Thai curries, roti, dumplings, paella, Mexican, a hangi and the good old sausage sizzle.”

Ms Vaughan said the range of food reflected the school’s cultural mix.

“It’s a real community event and they’re making all the food.

“It is our main fundraiser and it’s very well supported by the wider community.”

The school has more than 250 kids and are expecting a large crowd of friends and families are expected to attend.

There were a range of stalls selling books, clothes, baking, games and entertainment.
