Organisers say last year’s event attracted thousands, and are confident this year’s event will be the best yet, with music, rides, a petting zoo, and all the stalls and food traditionally associated with the annual event.
School principal Danny Sykes says it’s the spirit of the school community, and the community at large that keeps the event alive.
“Our teachers, parents and students work closely and tirelessly to create the fete every year,” he says. “Over the last few weeks, students and parents have been visiting local businesses to let them know the fete is on, and to ask them to donate goods and services, and the response has been amazing.
“St Michael’s Fete reinforces the simple pleasures in life and the sense of community we strive to create in our school. We hope everyone enjoys the event as much as we have enjoyed bringing it together for them.”
