Woodlands Park School Brick Show

By David Wardle | 14 April 2019

On 7 April All Blocks LEGO User Group had an amazing day as we supported Woodlands Park School. We were helping the school achieve one of their fundraising goals.

Woodlands Park School is situated in a beautiful bush-clad valley adjacent to Scenic Drive in the Waitakere Ranges of West Auckland. The school, with a roll of approximately 400 students is inclusive and caring. The school is the focal point of Woodlands Park.

There was a great community feel at the school during the Brick Show.

This short, two-and-a-half-minute, time lapsed video gives you a quick look at the show.

Student building competition

As part of the show hosted by Woodlands Park School, there was a student LEGO building competition for students enrolled at the school. There were three age grades: Years 1-2, Years 3-4, and Years 5-6.

One $50 gift voucher was awarded to the winner in each age grade. Every entry received a free LEGO polybag. The prizes were kindly supplied by Toyworld West Auckland.

Judging for the competition was really difficult as there were so many fabulous entries.

I would like to send a huge thanks to all the members of All Blocks who participated and we can feel proud that we helped Woodlands Park School raise over $5,000.
