I'm a freelance writer who lives on the Bellarine Peninsula. I enjoy finding new things to see and do in the beautiful area that I live in.
I want to tell you something I have noticed time and time again. You have probably also have noticed this - a sense of rivalry between some schools, which are situated in close proximity to one another, as they compete for the title of best school in the area. One school may consider their curriculum to be better than the others, or perhaps it's their playground (which trumps the recreation area of the other school), that puts them on top.
But then there are schools that defy this argument, such as the Drysdale and Clifton Springs primary schools, which, every year, band together to hold their joint fundraiser- the Bunyip Festival. Held annually, and alternating each year between the two schools, the Bunyip Festival is one of the oldest fundraising festivals on the Bellarine Peninsula.
This year, the 32nd Bunyip Festival will be held at Clifton Springs Primary School, between 10am and 3pm (on Saturday 24 March). There will be lots of food stalls to cater to all tastes, as well as live entertainment, plenty of fun stalls to visit, carnival rides, face painting, main and silent auctions and a major raffle.
