Fair fun for whole family

7 March 2019|Community News, Education| Off Comments off on Fair fun for whole family|

STAFF and students at Rosetta Primary School have been busily preparing for their upcoming twilight fair in late March.

Fair coordinator Ruth Slade said there was a sense of excitement for the family friendly event.

“The fair is a wonderful opportunity to bring our whole school and community together while also being a major fundraising event,” she said.

Mrs Slade said the funds raised would help the school create a new playground in the kindergarten area.

“Rosetta Primary School was fortunate to receive funding for a new kindergarten classroom to be built this year, however the funds don’t extend enough to complete the playground updates that are desperately needed,” she said.

As the school’s largest fundraising event for the year, the fair has something for everyone.

Classes of students have been working with teachers, parents and volunteers to set up stalls that will be selling showbags, Krispy Kreme Donuts, cakes, bric-a-brac and numerous other goodies.

There will also be the chance to win prizes from lucky dips and guessing how many lollies are in a jar, as well as the opportunity to make a stress ball or badge.

A number of tasty food options will be available including Big Henry’s Food Truck catering in burgers and chips, an ice cream van and a barbecue run by the school community.

In the school hall, there will be various local businesses showcasing their products, such as jewellery, essential oils, chemical-free beeswax, bath products, handmade candles, local honey, wooden dolls, personalised gifts and handmade slime.

Car rides, a kite stall and a jumping castle will be set up on the oval for the kids.

“Largely the success of the event is due to parents and teachers from each class supporting class stalls,” Mrs Slade said.

“However, the event wouldn’t come together without our active school fundraising committee that spends a lot of their time making the fair happen.”

Mrs Slade said she hoped the event continued to grow in the future and kept attracting community support.

“In 2016 we had our first fair in 11 years, but the feedback from the community was great and everyone wanted to ensure it wasn’t another 11 years before we had another,” she said.

“We would love people to attend our event for a great evening of family fun, great food and to support our school.”

The twilight fair will be held at Rosetta Primary School from 4pm-7pm on Friday 29 March.
