Centennial Gala Auction Items – 2021

The Gala on 18 September is all about raising money for our wonderful School and the main way we do this is through our auction. This year, thanks to Barfoot & Thompson, our generous community and the hard work of some very dedicated parents, we have pulled together an amazing selection of auction items.

You can buy lots of the auction items NOW! So have a look through and think about what you might like.

Some of the bigger items are designed for a group, so talk to your friends and family and see if you can pool your money to win!!!
