Unfortunately the P&C is unable to host the Great Fete in 2017. We hope to form a new fete committee late in 2017 in order to host the Great Fete again in 2018. We apologise to our valued stall holders, sponsors and to the wider Samuel Gilbert Community for any inconvenience.

What a great day we all had at the 2014 Great Fete at Samuel Gilbert Public School. Not even morning rain could dampen the spirit of fete goers who turned out to enjoy rides, stalls, entertainment and games. The day ended in a burst of afternoon sunshine.

At first it was like umbrella land...

Then the hall filled out with people watching band, vocal ensemble, dance groups and karate.

 Meanwhile the food court was busy cooking up some hot, delicious cuisine (...and having a dance too, thanks Spanish Stall). The stalls included Korean BBQ, Indian, Spanish, Kidz Canteen and more.

The Rides were already running hot and continued throughout the day, with crowds peaking during the afternoon sun.

Face Painting was back this year, keeping our talented artist Nat busy throughout the day!

Other popular interactive stalls included Sand Art, Beauty Clinic, Fish Frenzy and Decorate Your Own Cupcake

People had just enough time to enjoy some 'sweet treats'...
