ITS inaugural 2011 Family Fun Day Expo was a novel exercise in school-business-community integration.

And so shall it be again.

Currumbin State Primary School Parents and Citizens president Caressa Flanagan said the expo would take place this weekend.

"We already have Tugun Tyre and Mechanical, Little Kickers, Bendigo Bank, Sand Wizard, Hair Accessories, Currumbin RSL, Tupperware, Zumba, Surfing Services Australia, Clothing and Jewellery, Rustee Toys, Kylee Maree Photography and LJ Hooker booked in, and lots more interested.

"Surfing Services in particular donate so much to the school and are a great support for every event we have.

"We will be having dancing, sporting, Zumba, Yoga, displays in the new hall and on the oval, and the tuckshop will be operating with a sausage sizzle, hamburgers and slushies," Mrs Flanagan said.

She said the day was a chance for "all of our families, local businesses and the community to showcase their business or their products".

"We are going to set up on the oval and near the new hall, it is only $50 a site and you can promote your business however you feel.

"If you cannot participate on the day it would be greatly appreciated if you could assist us with a voucher that can go towards our raffles for the expo.

"So please if you would like to join us for a great family fun day and to support your local community please feel free to contact us."

Unlimited rides will be available on the day, June 17, from 11am-3pm and passes can be bought from the P and C for $25 or on the day for $30.

All money raised will be used by the school's playground fund for updates and maintenance.

Laser skirmish, a ferris wheel, giant slide and jumping castle are among the rides that will feature.

Phone the P and C on 07 5525 0820 if you are interested in holding a business stall or would like more information.
