First fete in six years

Hoping they’ll have the right key to open one of three treasure chests at the Stella Maris school fete are grade 2 pupils Will Goninon, Tyson Johnson and Taheed Spiewak.FOR the first time in six years Stella Maris Catholic Primary School pupils, parents, teachers and the wider Burnie community, will be treated to a school fete.

On Sunday, November 9 the doors of the school will be wide open, with treats like a gingerbread land, jumping castle and petting zoo.

“We thought it was about time we had one, it took a bit of organisation, but it’s worth it,” Stella Maris parents and friends association president Annette Johnson said.

“There’ll be handball and target shooting . . . bric-a-brac, a book stall, secondhand clothes, toys, lucky dips, silent auction hampers and a mega raffle.”

Organisation for the school fete has been in the works since March, with pupils and parents heavily involved.

“Each grade has taken on something to do, everyone’s getting in on it which is really good,” Mrs Johnson said.

“A lot of the kids there now haven’t experienced a school fete, so they’re starting to get really excited.”

Pupils have been treated to a treasure chest competition in the lead-up to the fete.

Each pupil can buy a key to bring to the fete, which could unlock a treasure chest full of surprises.

Prep will have a lucky dip stall, grade 6 a book stall, and grade 3 will have a pre-loved toys stall, in the name of reducing, reusing and recycling.

The fete will also be a good way to let the community see what is behind the school walls.

“We’ve had a lot of improvements to the school over the last years, so people can come and see how it’s different,” she said.

All money raised at the event will go towards the refurbishment of the school’s early childhood playground.

The Stella Maris Primary School fete will be held on Sunday, November 9 from 11am to 3pm.
