Fairholme Spring Fair
2017 Fairholme Spring Fair
Browns Office Choice Back on Board!
A huge thank-you to the very generous Brimblecombe families of Browns Office Choice, who have taken up the offer to become the major sponsor of the Fairholme Spring Fair for the eight consecutive year.
We’re looking forward to the attendance of their official mascot ‘Oicy’ and his giveaways again this year
Saturday 14 October | 10am - 3pm
Enjoy a delightful day in very pleasant surrounds, taking in outstanding performances, a huge variety of specialty stalls, sideshow alley, the famous Fairholme Fashion Parade and so much more!
The sun is shining and the flowers are in bloom - and that means Fairholme’s Spring Fair is only around the corner!
A successful Spring Fair requires volunteering from parents throughout the day. This year, we have an electronic sign-up sheet. This is a quick and easy way for parents to sign themselves up to the time slot and stall they wish to help out on the day. Volunteering for just one hour at a time that suits you, will go a long way in ensuring the success of Spring Fair.
The link is called ‘Sign Up’ and will be available to Fairholme parents to sign up to volunteer quickly and easily via the Fairholme App.
Here’s how it works:
- Go into the Fairholme App on your phone. Click on the ‘Links’ icon.
- Click on ‘Spring Fair Volunteer’.
- And then click on which time slot/stall suits you.
The slots are in order of times, not stalls. For example: all 9am to 10am slots are listed first, then 10am to 11am spots second etc.
Once you sign up to volunteer in a time slot, you can see who the convenor of the stall is, along with the convenor’s mobile. Conversely, convenors can see your name and mobile number.
That’s it! This dispenses of paper sign-up sheets, and is a quick and easy way to volunteer.
With the holidays coming up, it might make way for a little more thinking time! We would love you to start thinking of a few things you might want to donate to the Spring Fair: potted plants or herbs for the Plant Stall, filled jars for the Bottle Stall, treat-size chocolates for the Chocolate Wheel, home-grown produce for the Vege Stall, or even a few books or home decor items for the Vintage Stall. There is a ‘drop zone’ in L Assembly (Junior School) for all Spring Fair donations. Spring Fair is possible because of our amazing community of parents and students. Thank you!
We are super excited to announce the winner of the Golden Ticket wristbands! Charli Moore, Georgia Quinn and Caitlin O'Shea (along with one friend each) have each won a Golden Ticket to the Spring Fair where they get to jump the queue on every ride, all day!
For everyone else, wristbands for unlimited rides at the Fairholme Spring Fair are available for purchase online (until Friday, October 13) for $35.
Wristbands can also be purchased on the day of Spring Fair at the ticket office for $40
The Round Up, Mechanical Surfboard, Super Slide, Ferris Wheel, Chuggy Choo Choo Worm, Hot Rod Cars and a whole lot more… The rides at Spring Fair 2017 are going to be bigger and better than ever before! For a family of 3 or more, wristbands are just $25 each. Quick sticks… You don't want to miss out.
