Met­ella Road Pub­lic School hosts’ the biggest fete in the Seven Hills area

It is a huge fete and it usu­ally cre­ates a line around the corner to get in to prove it. I found myself wait­ing in line for 15 minutes and the line was only get­ting big­ger, but every­one was friendly and in good spirits.

This fete only hap­pens once every two yearsline getting in at Metella Road Public School Spring Fete

Most of the fete is run by volun­teers from around the local neigh­bour­hood. It is great to see all the mums and dads freely give up their time to run such a large fete.

I also noticed a lot of small to medium-sized busi­nesses get­ting involved with this fete and provid­ing the best tast­ing food I have ever had at a local school fete. A lot of these busi­nesses have donated goods and ser­vices to go towards prizes for a massive raffle.

The Rides

They had a huge range of rides that all the kids loved and get way too excited on. My par­tic­u­lar favour­ite with the space shuttle but they also have slides, bouncy castles, bumper cars, tea­cup ride, and many oth­ers I don’t know the name of. The great thing is it will only cost you $30 for an all-day pass. Not to men­tion for an extra $2 dol­lars for three throws you can dunk your not so favour­ite teacher. They also had some great little nov­el­ties like footy passing, bowl­ing, and children’s craft.

The Food

Food was more than what I expec­ted for a local fete and I couldn’t stop myself from eat­ing the home-made sweets and cakes. Seven Hills is a very mul­ti­cul­tural sub­urb and the desserts were the proof in the pud­ding with such a vari­ety of great tast­ing treats.

Out­back Steak­house also made camp there with lots of qual­ity bur­gers and juicy steaks. The great thing was I didn’t have much money in my pocket at the time but that didn’t stop me from try­ing just about everything I could find. I couldn’t believe how cheap it was and the ser­vice was quick and friendly.


They had some good per­form­ances on the day which I could tell the teach­ers and stu­dents had put in a lot of effort. This year’s per­form­ances in 2013 were;

  1. Seni­ors dan­cers A and B
  2. Junior boys dance
  3. Junior girls dance
  4. Junior choir
  5. Senior choir
  6. And vari­ous stage performances

Shop stalls

Police at Metella Road Public School Spring Fete

I was very impressed by the amount of stalls they had and who they had got­ten involved. For example New South Wales police where there to edu­cate chil­dren on safety and to speak with the loc­als. There were vari­ous craft stalls but what I found most intriguing is that the school had pulled out all stops to cre­ate a second hand book­store that was full of inter­est­ing books you couldn’t get any­where else. I spoke to one of the teach­ers and she told me “all the mums and dads and the local com­munity had handed in old books that they didn’t want”.


Note; If you are a local busi­ness that wants to get involved you can call the school to go on a list of shop stalls for 2015 as you get greater expos­ure here.
