Dear parents and friends of Gerringong Public School,                                 

Guess what's on this year....

                                                      Gerringong Public School Fete  

Saturday 24th March, 2018!!!





Amazingly, our last fete was in 2015, it really doesn't seem that long ago does it? Fete planning for our 2018 Fete is well underway already so please mark the date in your diary now. The Fete is a wonderful community time which creates everlasting memories for our children. So it is time for all hands on deck again to make this a fun day for kids and parents alike.


The Fete Committee wishes to thank Fete co-ordinator: Carlie Chapman and Fete committee: Vanessa Wall (stall co-ordinator), Liz Smith(advertising co-ordinator), Shane Wicks(P&C representative), Jen Galvin(financial co-ordinator), Jo Cunningham(food co-ordinator), Kylie Buchanan (marketing co-ordinator) and Lauren Peters (teacher representative) for their amazing effort at the 2015 Fete, and also for passing on their advice and resources for the next fete. Their experience will aid many Fete Committees for years to come and we are very grateful. Their hard work combined with the 2015 Fete Committee and the school community allowed our school to update our Library and turn it into a flexible learning space with new technology. Thank you also to those parents who have already joined the team for next fete and are part of the 2018 Fete Committee.


How can you help?

Volunteer your time

If every family in our school gave one hour of their time on the day of the Fete, either setting up, packing away, or serving on a stall it would allow all parents to enjoy the day with their children rather than having only a handful of people to carry the load. 


Stall co-ordinators

Each stall needs a co-ordinator. If you can give your time and expertise to run a stall please let us know.  Maybe you could run the cake stall, plant stall or book stall. Maybe you have your own great idea. Our committee will be here to help you and provide volunteers on the day. 



If your family or your business would like to sponsor or donate to our Fete, we would love to hear from you.  More info to come next newsletter!!


Join the Fete Committee

Positions are still vacant if you would like to join our committee.

We welcome suggestions and encourage you to email us at anytime or talk with a member of the Fete Committee.  We would be delighted to hear from you!


Thank You,

On behalf of the 2018 Fete Committee,

Vanessa Bragg.
