All’s fair in fun and games

FROM sumo wrestling and circus troupes to live choir performances, there will be something to capture the interest of all members of the family at the Dominic College Community Fair.

The fair will get underway from 3.30pm on Friday 4 November.

Featuring more than 50 stalls and “entertainment galore”, the event is anticipated to be Dominic’s biggest fair yet.

Parent Anne Lacey said her son had the most fun at last year’s fair challenging his friends wearing sumo suits.

“It was very funny seeing these little people with massive suits giggling so much they could not manage to get themselves back up off the mats,” she said.

A member of the fair’s organising committee, Mrs Lacey said the Parents and Friends (P&F) raffle, with 17 special prizes, would be drawn at the fair.

The raffle has a prize pool of $3,700, including a $500 debit card.

Dominic College principal Beth Gilligan said the fair was the college’s largest fundraising event, and was renowned for its relaxed family atmosphere.

“Our students, families, old scholars and all in the community join together in a spirit of enjoyment and generosity,” she said.

“In the past the P&F money has contributed to the professional lighting grid in the Oratory Space, has replenished classroom games, and funded the installation of water fountains and playground equipment.”

Dominic College P&F president Nicola Rayner said she loved the way everyone “pitches in” to deliver a fun-filled event.

“The food stalls are a favourite and visitors can browse classroom fundraising stalls, cake and plant stalls, enjoy free children’s activities and entertainment, fabulous rides and live performances,” she said.
