Family Fun Hits the Schoolyard
St Keiran’s Primary School is welcoming winter warmly this month with their popular annual Family Fun Day. Being held on Sunday, July 22, the day is a highly anticipated school event full of laughter, games and food, all for a good cause.

Principal Ben Gray says the St Kieran’s Family Fun Day is the highlight of the school calendar for students and the community.

“It is the school’s major fundraising event of the year, and all proceeds are directly reinvested into the school,” he says.

“The school has fridges and air-conditioning in all classrooms, a new junior playground, enhanced sound and stage equipment, upgraded school oval and musical instruments have all be possible through the funds raised by the Family Fun Day.

“The money raised from this 2018 Family Fun Day will fund a new outdoor playground for our senior students.”

There is something for everyone at the event, with a few new attractions this year to add some extra pizazz to the day.

“There are rides for all ages, an animal farm, pony rides, sideshow alley, trash and treasure, arts and crafts, crazy hair, a farmers markets, plant stall, and cakes and sweets to name a few,” Ben says.

“Hungry patrons can be assured of plenty of great food and beverage options including a BBQ stand, German sausages, pulled pork and chicken rolls, morning tea, slushies, fairy floss and a coffee van.

“Entertainment options are many with student dance performances, school band and choir performances plus other performances from local organisations such as Performance Power and Swingalicious.” 

Ben says the most popular event of the day is the Dunk-a-Teacher stand, where brave teachers volunteer to be drenched by their students and community members.

“Our students love the opportunity to throw a ball at a target and see their Principal and teachers get wet,” he says.

“Overall it’s a great event where we come together as a school and local community, and our students and staff work hard preparing for what promises to be a wonderful day.”
