Fun of the fete for all, young and old

Central and North Burnett Times - - SCHOOL NEWS -

RIDES, en­ter­tain­ment and food brought a huge crowd to the St Joseph’s Pri­mary School fete.

The evening cooled down af­ter a hot day and Gayn­dah lo­cals turned up in num­bers to en­joy Fri­day’s fete.

School prin­ci­pal Liam Dougherty said the event “was a great success”.

“There was an enor­mous crowd; it was a really good at­mos­phere,” he said.

Stu­dents kicked off the fes­tiv­i­ties with spec­tac­u­lar dance rou­tines.

“The dancers put on an out­stand­ing, qual­ity per­for­mance.”

Mar­ket stalls sold plants, fresh fruit and ve­g­ies, toys and knick-knacks.

The rides were do­ing big busi­ness and the long line for fairy floss kept kids out of trou­ble as they waited their turn.

The fete raised money for St Joseph’s Par­ish, with raf­fles, ham wheels and food stalls.

The win­ners of the big raf­fle re­ceived vouch­ers to spend at any store in Gayn­dah. Kristy Porter won first prize with $1000 in vouch­ers, Ron Korn won sec­ond prize with $500 in vouch­ers and War­ren Bayn­tun won third prize and re­ceived $300 in vouch­ers.
