All the Fun of the Fair

Perfect weather, exciting exhibits and an action packed program beckoned a large crowd of Fairholme families and the wider community to the College grounds on Saturday 17 October for the 2015 Fairholme College Spring Fair.

Sponsored by Brown’s Office Choice (for the seventh consecutive year), this year’s Spring Fair offered over 40 stalls including an animal farm, face painting, pony rides, football toss, delicious food and coffee, and an incredible array of market stalls. Congratulations must be extended to this year’s Spring Fair Co-ordinator, Mrs Janelle Davis.

The Fairholme Aquathon was once again a huge success with a huge number of entries spread across all age-ranges, while The Westpac Gala Fairholme Fashion Parade capped off Fairhome Fashion week in style, with a stunning line-up of garments and the announcement of the Fashion Design Competition winners. The Boarder Cent Sale with its impressive prize offerings proved as popular as ever, and there were some outstanding items up for bidding at the Century 21 Silent Auction.

A large number of Fairholme Old Girls enjoyed touring the Campus and viewing the memorabilia at the Spring Fair. Further year level reunions were held over the weekend, including a special church service conducted in the homestead, featuring the very special voices of Gwenyth Chappell’s Bella Voce, and a delightful luncheon for all year levels in the Dining Room. Needless to say there was much reminiscing, many emotional catch-ups, and some very amusing stories to be heard!
