The picturesque little school in Otford will be once again hosting its biennial School Fete on Saturday 19 October 2013 from 10am till 3pm.
Following on from the wonderful Artisan Fair in 2011, organisers are carrying over the tradition of “handmade, homegrown & organic.” Stall holders from the local area will bring an fabulous range of hand-fashioned crafts and homewares, from candles and soft furnishings to jewellery and clothing. Green thumbs will love the plant stall and bargain hunters can always ﬁnd their treasure at the White Elephant.
“Every two years we hold the Fete to raise much needed funds for the beneﬁt of our kids at the school. In previous years we have raised money to buy books for the school library, and equipment for the classroom. This year our team of dedicated parents and friends are working to make this event even bigger than before!” said Otford P&C President Liz Turner.
From a good old fashioned sausage sizzle and fairy ﬂoss for the kids to wonderful aromatic curries, French crepes and freshly made salads, there will be food available for all tastes. And of course, no school Fete would be complete without a cake stall. The Otford school cake stall is renowned through the area for the delicious cakes and sweet treats, as well as jams and home grown produce.
Local band Quagmire lead the entertainment and Symbio Wildlife Park will provide an show with some of their native creatures. Try your luck with the rafﬂe or on the bottle or the chocolate stall. Children will be able to join in an art class with The Art Box or learn how to tie dye their own t-shirt. And Circus Wow will provide a fun ﬁlled circus workshop for budding young acrobats.
Wollongong City Council will set up their drinking water station, so bring your own reﬁllable bottles.
Mark down Saturday 19 October 2013 in your calendar for a great day for all the family.
