Principal Trisha Parker said the Halloween Fair had become a hit over the years ‘because parents love the opportunity to have some Halloween fun in a safe, family-friendly environment’.

The only thing missing from previous years was plastic.

‘One of our Kindy classes had the idea of trying to make our fair as plastic-free as possible,’ said Mrs Parker.

‘Dressing up is a fabulous part of Fairtastic,’ Mrs Parker said. As you can see, many people took advantage of face-painting available on the night.

Competitions included Best Dressed, Halloween Cakes, Best Scarecrow and the new Fairy Light Guessing Competition.
