St Anthonys Primary School In Girraween Has It’s Spring Fair
St Anthonys primary school in Girraween has a spring fair once every year. This fair helps fundraise for much needed technology and resources for the school.
This fair is important for community spirit!
The great thing about this fair is that it’s not only just the school that gets involved but the entire community. I have found that new residents of the area get accepted and connected very quickly by all the locals when they come to this fair. I find this fair very important for community spirit and for people to get to know their neighbours.
I have also seen kids that don’t go to the school make new friends here, which you can imagine happens very quickly at the fun rides. Spike the real estate dog really enjoys it to and our team love to give our balloons to all the over excited kids that come to hug spike.
It really takes a committed community of hard working mums and dads to make this happen and they plan for months and months in advance. They normally book out the course rides for the kids and even get to dunk their teachers.
What Rides And Food Are There?
The many different rides they get into the fair are storm, dodgems, zoomer, giant slides, jumping castle and dunking machine. There is normally delicious food such as Hot dogs, Pancakes, Ice Cream, Fairy Floss, Pies and Sausage Rolls.
There is also a photo booth that reminds you of the spring fair, (a great opportunity for a new selfie).
It normally is a big sell out and lots of people came to buy food (there’s nothing like a good old Aussie BBQ). It really is a fun filled community day and the school is really thankful to all the parent helpers who helped on the day. This really makes a difference for St Anthonys primary school and without all the volunteers we would not have this fair.
Mrs Louise Frendo, Spring Fair Coordinator and her team puts in a top effort to make this event happen to raise money, to aid in fulfilling there dreams and aspirations for new learning equipment and environmental improvement.
Without this fair I don’t think the community would be as strong as it is now. I would urge anyone in the local area to come see what all the fuss is about.
St Anthonys Spring Fair is at 216 Targo Road, Girraween and is normally held around the 7th of September every year so keep your eyes peeled next year and look out for spike the real estate dog and the team for some free balloons.
