Fan­tas­tic fun and games at car­ni­val

Geraldton Guardian - - News - Tamra Carr

The Al­len­dale Pri­mary School Fac­tion Car­ni­val wrapped up with a vic­tory for the green team, with the Crocs amass­ing 527 points, fol­lowed by the Foxes (464), Sharks (557), and the Hor­nets (350).

School staff also cel­e­brated a win in the end-of-day re­lay event against stu­dents and par­ents, helped along by the par­tic­i­pa­tion of S&K Elec­tri­cal Buc­ca­neers player Matt Han­cock, who sided with the ed­u­ca­tors.

“It was great to help the teach­ers to their first win in a while, well so I’ve heard,” he said.

“The par­ents were ac­tu­ally very com­pet­i­tive and came in a close sec­ond but we had deputy prin­ci­pal Chad Barnes fin­ish off strong for the staff which was great to see.”

“Ev­ery­one in­volved had fun and it was good to put on a lit­tle show for the kids.”

Max Matthews, 11, be­came the lucky owner of a new bike do­nated by Mem­ber for Ger­ald­ton Ian Blayney af­ter win­ning the school raf­fle, which raised funds for the school Par­ents and Ci­ti­zen’s As­so­ci­a­tion.

Mu­si­cian Kane Lemin, who has been vol­un­teer­ing mu­si­cal ser­vices at Al­len­dale Pri­mary School car­ni­vals for the past four years, said the day had been great.

“It’s been fan­tas­tic, the weather turned out beau­ti­fully,” he said.

“We have had a cou­ple of years where the weather hasn’t been so nice. It’s re­ally good to have a nice change.”

Last Fri­day Mr Lemin cel­e­brated his 50th birth­day at the school.
