Cayman Prep’s Eggmania 2010

Organisers hope that the annual Easter fair will raise even more money for PTA initiatives than last year

Cayman Prep and High School is
egg-stremely geared up about the staging of this year’s Easter Eggmania event
on Saturday, 20 March.

“We are hoping for a good turnout,”
said PTA Treasurer Lyn Johnson.

“This is always a fun event for the
children and a great way for families to be involved in raising much needed
funds for items the school needs.”

The fair will be held in the hall
and in the grounds of the school’s infant department on Walkers Road from 11am
to 3pm.

Visitors can expect various stalls
including a craft station, a plant booth, a used book stall, a craft kit booth
(cake decorating and homemade cookie kits), as well as a bouncy castle, a
football shoot-out, a face painting kiosk and a Nerf sharp shooting zone.

The highlight of the event is likely
to be the egg hunt. Organisers plan to hide hundreds of plastic eggs, which
will be redeemed for goody bags. 
Eggmania Organising Committee members will also hide a few golden eggs,
which entitle the finders to claim special prizes.

An adult café selling coffee, tea
and baked goods will also be set up. Other food and refreshments for sale include
hot dogs, hamburgers, locally made sausages, popcorn, sno cones and cotton

An all-activities pass will cost
$20 for children older than four years old and $4 for those younger than four.
Adult entry is free.

Mrs. Johnson said that the monies
raised at Eggmania 2010 would to fund various PTA initiatives. The PTA’s wish
list includes laptops to accompany the schools’ smart boards and a new audio
visual system for the high school auditorium. She said that last year’s event raised
over $50,000.
