Fantastic fun and games at carnival
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.”

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.
