Who & Why


The Fete is the major School fundraiser, with profits contributing to valuable School resources like air conditioning, IT infrastructure and learning resources. It's run by the School's P&C who are always grateful for support from local businesses, families, individuals and School staff. This year the P&C aim to provide funding that enables the redesign of existing facilities for 21st century learning as well as further contributions towards playground upgrades.
