The theme of the fete is ‘Harry Potter’ and Coorabell Public School’s Nat Grube has made a cute little video to advertise the day.

The sorting hat will be waiting for you at the school gates to allocate you in to your Hogwarts’s House. You can join a house team and play fun games as you compete for the 2019 Hogwarts House Cup.

There will be plenty of entertainment on the day and fun sideshow Potterish games including quidditch training, bouncy castles, bungee run game and an amazing gigantic Zorb Ball to climb inside and turn your world upside down.

Professor Dumbledore will oversee a fun fancy dress competition and the infamous cupcake contest.
