ST Colman’s School’s first fete in 12 years was a runaway success, as about 200 students, parents and teachers enjoyed the late afternoon sunshine last Friday.

The event included a wide range of activities, including a jumping castle, a wet sponge throw, apple bobbing, horse rides and face painting.

Principal Tim Bourke said the fete was a way to create a sense of community while having fun.

Runny race: The ‘egg and spoon’ race was a popular attraction at St Colman School’s fete.

“We haven’t done it for a long time,” he said.

“Some are just here for fun, while others are here to become part of the local contribution.”

Mr Bourke said the $2000 raised during the afternoon will feed back into activities and tools within the school.

He said the funds could go towards new computers or upcoming camp trips.
