School fete beats weather

NOTHING was going to dampen the heart and spirit of this school community; the show must go on as they say.

The St Laurence O’Toole Primary School fete was held on Saturday and in among the showers, plenty of fun was had by the hundreds in attendance.

After a year’s hiatus, the key fundraising activity was put back on the calendar this year.

The fete provided an opportunity for the school’s families to come together, share their time, talent and treasures with the community.

There were plenty of activities in the classrooms, fun games and stalls and spinning wheels in the hall.

The day culminated in an auction of some valuable items which boosted the fundraising total.

The rides outside was the only thing affected but the Lions chips and coffee cart ensured everyone had what was needed to keep warm.

All the floss: Chloe LePage and Olivia Cumming from St Laurence O’Toole Primary School thought their fairy floss was pretty good at the fete on Saturday.
