IT’S not just your usual fete with fairy floss and stom­ach-churn­ing rides.

Lego build­ing, skate­board­ing and an eco al­ley are some of the things you can ex­pect to see along­side all the crowd favourites at Cur­rimundi State School’s 2017 Great Fete.

The bi-an­nual event, held at the school grounds on Au­gust 5 is one of the big­gest fun­dri­as­ing events run by the school.

P&C rep­re­sen­ta­tive Alice Tay­lor-Tighe said the event takes nearly two years of plan­ning.

“At the end of the pre­vi­ous fete we’re al­ready start­ing on the next one,” she said.

This fete will be a lit­tle dif­fer­ent from the last two held by the school which were purely science fo­cussed.

Ms Tay­lor-Tighe said the school be­gan run­ning a skate pro­gram last year which in­spired a skat­ing com­pe­ti­tion to take place as part of the fete.

The Great Fete Skate will fea­ture an in­clu­sive skate com­pe­ti­tion which aims to cel­e­brate all skaters’ skill lev­els.

There will be “come and try” lessons, as well as skate de­mos from lo­cal pro skate­board­ers.

Ms Tay­lor-Tighe said the lego-build­ing com­pe­ti­tion will also add some spark to the event.

The fete will also fea­ture in­flat­able rides, mar­ket stalls, side-show al­ley type ac­tiv­i­ties and stage per­form­ers.
