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.
There are few people who dislike the changes when daylight saving occurs in most Australian states each year. The practice of winding our clocks forward an hour means that we can enjoy more daylight hours at a later time, providing us with lighter evenings which feel distinctly 'summery'. This is especially welcome when you want to enjoy a late family barbeque, or hold an event where extended daylight is preferred over darkness- such as a twilight festival.
For the children, staff and families of Grovedale West Primary School, this is the perfect opportunity to hold their Twilight Spring Fair, which will be held on Friday 24 October (from 4-8pm). As their major fundraiser for the year, the school pulls out all stops to make the event as entertaining as possible for all. This year there will be plenty of rides and activities for people of all ages, including pony rides, a giant dragon slide, aqua orbs, face painting and a sideshow alley. There will also be a variety of market stalls, as well as plenty of musical entertainment for those who prefer a more relaxed approach to the evening. The primary school will be catering to all the foodies out there with their GWPS Café (which will be providing a menu of delicious foods) or you can purchase from the ever-popular Cake Stall.
This community event always guarantees fun for the family, and gives people the opportunity to help support a local school. For an entertaining evening out, head down to Grovedale West Primary School on Heyers Road this Friday.
