Playground favourite: Students Everett Lake-Williams, 8, and Alix Horand-Barnett, 8, on a spider climbing frame partly funded from past school fairs


The team behind tomorrow’s Queenstown Primary School fair’s determined to raise the bar to make up for last year’s Covid-induced cancellation.

Old favourites returning include The Great Crockery Smash, chocolate hunt and police car rides.

There’ll also be a bouncy castle, silent disco, a wet’n’ wild play area, face painting, books, produce, pre-loved treasures, cake stalls and international and Kiwi food stalls.

Year groups are holding stalls, too, to raise funds for their annual camps, while the school band and kapa haka group will also perform.

‘‘Our annual fair is such an important fundraising event because the funding received by the Ministry of Education only provides for the very basic curriculum delivery,’’ school PTA chair Jen Mitchell says.

Funds raised will go towards playground equipment upgrades and new sports and cultural uniforms for students.

The fair runs from 10am till 2pm on the school’s Robins Road sportsground.
