The event will showcase student’s creative talent in the form of musical performance on the main stage, roaming buskers and a variety of craft stalls offering handmade wrapping paper, gift cards, toys, jewellery and pot plants. Historic photos of the school will be on display and there will be an opportunity to share your own story about the school.

There will also be a kids’ activity zone, dress up photo booth, snow cones, lazer tag, showbags, petting zoo, pony rides, jumping castles and face painting.

Baked goods and pre-loved books will feature alongside a selection of locally made sculpture, candles and homewares.
The winner of their monster birthday raffle will be drawn at one pm on the day with some fantastic prizes donated by local businesses.

Their generous partners from Rotary will offer a sausage sizzle and their P&C chefs will provide a variety of healthy dinner options cooked fresh on-site from locally grown produce.

Community groups such as Soldiers Point Rural Fire Services, State Emergency Services, Fisheries, Hunter Water and Port Stephens Koalas will also attend the event.

Money raised from the market will be used to expand the creative spaces within the school grounds and support their accomplished school music program.

The 70th birthday celebration is a great opportunity to visit the school, discover local talent, get your Christmas shopping started and then sit back with family and friends to share a meal together.
