Family Fair week was a big one, a great weekend from the Art Show Opening on Friday through the Fair itself on Saturday and the Art Show continuing until Sunday afternoon. This year there were also Craft classes on Sunday, making this a very full weekend indeed.

A huge thank you goes to Class 4 parents who put in such enormous efforts to bring the Family Fair of 2017 to a happy conclusion. Their dedication was a gift of service to the whole community. Special thanks to Jacinta Dunn, Fair Coordinator, and to Airlie McConnell, Art Show Coordinator. They each fronted a behind the scenes team of parents who worked solidly over the past months to get the Art Show and Fair into shape including for the fair, Rod Segal, Matt Bradley, Julia and Rino Pekovitch, Jules Munro, Alison Rigby, Alix Segal and Matthew Browne for the GPA.

Special thanks the school Maintenance team led by the ever dependable Facilities Manager Michael Thomson plus Mary Heard for the Castlecrag campus, Margaret Millikin for school liaison and Michele Harris for the fabulous marketing.

The Art Show Opening on Friday night featured Alumni Annie Laerkesen (GlenX ’86), an established artist who officially opened the show. This very large undertaken was the work of a committee whose labours over many months brought this inspiring show together. As well as Airlie in the Art Show Committee, we thank Stephanie Graham, Donna Miller, Felicity Cutts, Adrian Sparrow and Sarah Callaghan.

Thank you to all parents: your presence and commitment made the Fair possible, all the way from set up, through running so many activities through to pull down and return to normal. A wonderful piece of work! 

And the weather?? Well, our undaunted spirits shone through, making the day a success!
