A special Christmas market to get everyone in the spirit of the season...
Remarkables Primary School is holding a special Christmas market, full of Christmas goodies and spirit.
PTA spokeswoman Tracey Pedersen said there would be modern Christmas carols, delivered by local musicians and the school’s choir and musical groups, to get everyone in the spirit of the season.
Another major fundraiser at the school, the CARnival, was held every second year so this was seen as an opportunity to get another event in the calendar.
More than 30 stalls will sell everything from jewellery, pinot noir Christmas cakes and kids clothing to concrete pots.
Briar Dennison and Sasha Key, both 9, are helping on the Christmas Stall where they will be selling pre-packaged ingredients to make your own Christmas cookies (just add butter), fudge, cup cakes
