Westminster Fair - can you help out?

I hope all families are enjoying the last weeks of the lovely weather. Some of you may have been at the Prep Sports Day last Friday and noticed the new House tents that looked very smart! Each tent is colour coded for the respective House, with the name and emblem for each House on them. These tents were purchased this year by FoW for the Prep School, with monies raised from the 2017 Fair. It was great to see the proceeds of the efforts of FoW and the volunteer group be enjoyed by all the children and staff on Friday.

We are fast approaching the annual Westminster Fair on Saturday 7 April and we are looking for people to help out “behind the scenes”, so we can make it a fantastic event again this year.

In particular we are looking for assistance with:

  • Convenors for the Books, Garden and Toy Stalls (this can be a shared or single person role for each stall)
  • Volunteers to assist with set up on the Thursday and Friday prior to Fair day, for the books, toys and bric-a-brac stalls
  • Volunteers to assist on Fair day with the running of the books, toys, garden, and bric-a-brac stalls (this is worked out via a roster with small 1-2 hour blocks)

If you can spare an hour or two on Fair day, or in the days leading up to the Fair, please register your interest with Shane Pope, M: 0410 605 527, or Sarah McHugh, M: 0478 880 452.

Please note that certain spots fill fast, so get in quick to secure your preferred time!

All proceeds raised from the Fun Fair are used to support projects across the whole School, so every student will benefit.

Thank you to all the families who give their time to make the Westminster Fair such a success. We are excited to share in this with you again this year.

Donations

We are also seeking donations of your unwanted treasures, and will gratefully accept household goods, small furniture, books, toys, and clothing that is is in good condition. All donations can be delivered to the Gate 4 Shed (Sports and Swimming Centre entrance gate). Please note that we are unable to take donations of electrical items, mattresses, and broken items.

I look forward to catching up with you soon around the school!
