The School’s major fundraiser displays and sells creations from local and national artists over the Easter Long Weekend.

‘’This event is the major fundraiser for our school and provides many resources including facilities, programs and resources,” Principal Mark Clemson said.

Still going strong after 40 years, the Art Expo has many elements.

“Historically, a feature artist comes and does demos across the weekend,” Mark told News Of The Area.

“It is anticipated that given we are in our 40th year, we will have multiple feature artists returning for the event this year.’’

Opening night on Thursday 13 April is for the over 18s.

“During the evening, apart from viewing the excellent artwork, a mega fundraising raffle for prizes donated from local businesses is held,” Mark said.

“A meal in the form of a carvery is offered, entertainment and the auction of class art, and one piece from each of our classes is offered for auction,” he added.

Behind the scenes, the School’s P & C and its dedicated committee is working tirelessly to ensure the Expo goes off without a hitch.

The event runs from 6pm Thursday 13 April, then 9am to 5pm on Friday 14, Saturday 15, Sunday 16 and Monday 17 April.
