Fete 2019: It's a Wrap!

Thank you to...

Without a dedicated and generous group of parent convenors and staff working behind the scenes, we would not be able to run a successful Fete & Auction.  A big THANK YOU to each and every one of you.

Any parents who are interested in getting involved in 2020, or who are simply curious, are welcome to come along to the final, combined, Parents & Friends / Fete Meeting for 2019;  to be held on Wednesday 20 November.
