Ready for a day of fun at the St Andrew's School Fair are Ciara McGhie, Grace King, Millie Drahm, Matthew Zeppa, Harriet Williams and Lauren Burnet.
It’s usually pretty quiet on a Sunday when there’s no students or teachers at St Andrew’s Catholic School.
But the primary school at Ferny Grove will come to life on 27 May when the sounds of fun and excitement from its annual fair drifts over nearby streets.
Peta Pitcher from the St Andrew’s Community Association said her group and the fair committee are working hard on final preparations for this year’s event.
They believe this month’s event, set across the entire school grounds, will be the biggest fair St Andrew’s has ever held.
“We are all very proud of our school and the annual fair provides us with an opportunity to showcase what we and our children love about St Andrews with the wider community,” Ms Pitcher said.
“We are all amazed at how popular this event has become, not just with St Andrew’s families past and present, but for the locals as well.
“The day really has evolved into a community-wide event with rides and entertainment for the children big and small.”
The fair also features craft and clothing stalls, a second hand bookstore and coffee shops, as well as plenty of food – “everything from German sausages to fairy floss”.
Dance, music and choir performances are also on the agenda for fun, as is an art fair, live and silent auctions, bar and a children’s entertainment area with petting zoo and horse rides.
The fair runs from 9.30am to 3pm at the St Andrew’s School grounds, located at the corner of Hogarth and Upper Kedron Roads, Ferny Grove. Phone 3351 6366.
