Pasadena Fundraising Fiesta

On Friday 7th May 2021, Pasadena Intermediate will be holding a Fundraising Fiesta Event which involves the students taking part in ‘The Great Pasadena Quiz’. This is a sponsored quiz that the students will answer within a fun, interactive and inclusive environment.

With the loss of Pasifika parking for the third straight year, the goal for the Fiesta is to raise funds to purchase modern furniture, additional staffing for enrichment programmes, as well as a range of digital devices and tools in order to support the learning needs of every student in our school. 

 

We want to make the Fundraising Fiesta event as fun as possible – students can dress up on the day! They might like to try the following ideas: washable hair chalk, face painting, bright wig, different coloured shoes or socks or a bright coloured onesie etc. There will also be food and drinks for sale, music, dancing and a range of spot prizes!

 

The quiz will be broken down into 10 sections (100 questions in total) and will cover different ‘Knowledge’ type questions (with a few fun ones included as well.) Each student will receive the quiz questions in advance (16th April) and will work through the answers to these in class, in the holidays and as part of homework.

The sections the students will be quizzed on are:

  • Pasadena Intermediate life
  • Sport
  • Te Reo Māori
  • Beautiful monuments of the world
  • Famous Kiwis
  • Pop Culture
  • Science
  • Flags of the World
  • Literature
  • General Knowledge

The Quiz Questions can be found here.  

 

Are there prizes? 

Absolutely! Every student who gets sponsored will end up with a prize. The amount sponsored will determine the prize the student may select – students could choose a game, electronic kit, a tablet or even Beats headphones (please see attached page).

There will also be a prize for the most money raised by a class:

  • 1st place – Pizza lunch and movie  
  • 2nd place – movie  

How do I donate?

This way no cash needs to be exchanged and we can track which class and students are raising the most money. You could even share the link below or the donation instructions with whānau who are living abroad. Alternatively, if you would like to get sponsors in cash, please record this on the form attached and bring the money to the office.
