Pinelands North Primary School had another Red-a-Fair
Pinelands North Primary School (PNPS) parents and pupils once again showed their community spirit by pulling off another successful Red-a-Fair.
Not only do all parents, teachers and pupils work together to plan and manage the fundraising event, but the communities of Pinelands and surrounds enjoy a day filled with food, festivities and loads of fun.
Every second year, the Red-a-Fair boasts with rides, games, tasty treats, craft stalls and great entertainment, that the planning team put in tireless months of planning for. Each event draws crowds who are seldom disappointed and always on a high when the day draws to a close.
Fair convenor, Jacqui Tooke, explains with a smile, “It is always humbling to see everyone from our school work together and pull off such a big, enjoyable day. Even our principal, Ann Morton, can be seen either getting a henna tattoo from one of our external vendors, being an excellent sport in the Dunk-The-Teacher challenge, or walking around with a recycling bag making sure all waste is properly recycled”.
Besides fueling lasting memories for the school community, the fair is a green event with active recycling, reduction of single-use plastics and a move towards biodegradable packaging.
PNPS would like to extend heartfelt thanks to the Pinelands community for their support. Funds raised will go towards replacing the school’s Art Room.
