Te Puke's Aiden Lints loves to create using Lego so it is no wonder he is looking forward to Fairhaven School's first Lego show today.

The fair will be showcasing Lego creations made by pupils from Years 1-6 which will then be judged by a team from the Hamilton Lego Users Group.

Funds raised from the event will go towards buying new Lego sets for the school.

Eight-year-old Aiden, who is in Year 3, created a Lego club for pupils at his school a year ago called Brick Kids.


The club is held every Friday and more than 20 pupils attend to create and share ideas on Lego.

Aiden wanted to start the group so he could enjoy creating with his friends, and because "everyone loves Lego".

Senior teacher Marianne Wilson said Lego helped pupils create friendships and was a great learning tool.

"Lego promotes creativity, innovation, and construction. There is a big focus on engaging kids."

The show is in the hall at Fairhaven School in Te Puke from 10am-5pm.

Entry is $5 and children under 3 are free.
