With warmer weather on the way, the community events calendar is starting to step up a gear with a number of events happening around Devonport peninsula this month.

Our Winter Fun Preschool Play programme is in full swing, happening every Tuesday, 9:30am - 11:00am at Bayswater School Hall, Bayswater until 24th September.  It’s a great opportunity for preschoolers and their caregivers to make new friends, catch up with old friends and for the little ones to be physically active with big toys. Sessions are free and caregiver supervision is required.  For more information, contact Maria at phone 445 9533.

On Wednesday 4th September, the Devonport cluster schools including Stanley Bay School, Devonport Primary School, St Leo’s School, Vauxhall School, Bayswater School, Belmont Primary School, Belmont Intermediate School, Wilson School and Hauraki school will be taking part in the Devonport Peninsula Beach Clean-up.    Each school has a designated
 area to clean and there will be over 1000 students out scouring the beaches between Devonport and Takapuna in the late morning when the tide is low. 
Also on Wednesday 4th September at 7:30pm, is the Takapuna Grammar School Fashion Show at Bruce Mason Theatre.  It’s an annual event for the school and this year’s theme is "Putting on the Ritz" - channelling Hollywood glamour of a by-gone era.  More than 100 students will be involved in the show which will have a mix of vintage and contemporary fashion.  Tickets cost $22 and all proceeds go to The Starship Foundation.
The Devonport Classic fun run and walk is happening on Sunday 22nd September. Starting and finishing at Fort Takapuna (beside Narrow Neck Beach) the event includes 5km, 10km and 15km run or walk events.
