The day saw attendees able to participate in a plethora of activities, from side show games and carnival rides, to fire engine tours and face painting.

The best lolly stall to ever grace a school fair ensured every child in sight had a special sweet treat, and a collection of handmade pieces made for the perfect opportunity to start some early Christmas shopping.

Students and community groups performed on the stage throughout the day, and roving characters entertained children as they wandered through the school.

The Scouts had a ropes and climbing course for all to try, and the Lions sausage sizzle was scrumptious as always.

After all takings were counted, and all accounts settled, the St Brigid’s Spring Fair committee announced to a very excited staff and student body that they had raised a mammoth $30,000 for their school.

Ms Jones told News Of The Area, “This figure is really quite unbelievable and such an enormous amount of money.”

“This endeavor would not be possible without this large contribution from our Parents and Friends Committee on behalf of all families.”

“The amount of work they did behind the scenes, and on the day, was nothing short of amazing.”

St Brigid’s School has a special project in mind for the money they have raised, with plans for developing an amazing outdoor learning spaces for their students.

Ms Jones said, “We couldn’t have pulled this off without the support of all the local businesses who supported our fair, and hope that our school community in turn will support them where you can.”

“We were especially thankful to our major sponsor News Of The Area, and also to Capital Chemist in the Terrace Plaza.”

“Easily, the most exciting feature of the St Brigid’s Spring Fair is how it brings together a community.”

“We could not have put an estimate on the number of people who attended on the day, but we do know however that they came from far and wide.”

Congratulations to St Brigid’s on your very successful and professionally run event – News Of The Area was pleased and proud to be involved in such an amazing Community event.
