Big numbers and fun expected at Cudgen school fete

CUDGEN Primary School is rallying the troops for the massive annual school fete.

The school's Parents and Citizens media officer Tanya Erezuma said it was the school's main fundraiser for the year.

"When we finish one fete we begin planning the other," she said.

"We're always trying to improve and get bigger and better."

There's something for everyone. Kids will love the giant inflatable wave slide, gladiator challenge, a jumping castle and the Viva Soccer arena, as well as crowd favourite Old MacDonald's farm.

The markets will be full of donated locally grown fresh produce, plant stalls, homemade cakes and sweets, secondhand goods and bric-a-brac stalls.

It is a full-on event with showbags, face-paintings, wacky hair creations and hair braids.

"Throughout the day we will be running raffles and we have the Cent Auctions back by popular demand, where the odds are great," Mrs Erezuma said. "This year we are very lucky to have a variety of fantastic prizes donated by local businesses and clubs."

Last year the funds were put towards a top-of-the-range stereo system for the hall. This year the funds raised will go to a beautiful new playground.

Check out the fun-filled event at Cudgen Primary School in Collier St on Saturday, October 27.

The fete will run from 9am to 1pm.
