Bask in panoramic views of Moreton Bay during lunch
As a child I remember the excitement arousing in my mind with the upcoming annual school fete. It was a time when we would prepare our art work, our cooking techniques and our craft abilities to display, sell and compete against other fellow school mates for the benefit of our school. It was a time when our parents met other parents and met our teachers. We would proudly show our parents are workmanship, our playground and class rooms. Although that was around forty years ago, the atmosphere of a school fete still remains.
The Manly West State School and P&C is holding their WOW (Window On the World) Festival on Saturday 15th August 2015 from 10.00am to 3.00pm and invites is not limited to just school attendees and their parents. Everyone is welcome.

The Manly area of Moreton Bay was originally occupied by the Aboriginal Mipirimm people whose lifestyle was semi-nomadic. European settlement of the Manly area took place around 1860s with the area being named after Manly Beach in New South Wales. The Manly State School opened on 4 July 1910.
The school focuses on supporting students to be critical and creative thinkers. Situated only 13 kilometres from the Brisbane CBD, the school is complete with parklands, bike/walk ways, a seaside pool, facilities for sailing, fishing and canoeing and a stunning, panoramic view over Moreton Bay.
With this in mind, the WOW Festival has something for everyone with Fun Fair Rides, Side Show Alley, Art Gallery, Sports Zone, International food, Japanese Tea Garden, lots of fete stalls, free entertainment, community group displays and lots more. It's your Ekka at the Bayside and while you relax with food and drink you can bask in the stunning views of Moreton Bay which is their very own Window on the World.
There is also a major raffle with the first prize being $1,000 cash. There are certainly a lot of things you could do with $1,000.
P&C Associations work closely with schools to raise money for the benefit of the students' education and funds for these benefits are sometimes hard work to achieve. The Manly West State School and P&C would love to hear from companies or organisations that may be able to donate items or funds for this event. Every bit no matter how small can go a long way in the promotion and preparation of such an event. Anyone wishing to help out can contact Ms Rosie O'Toole at firstname.lastname@example.org or go to the website www.mwssfete.com.au
Admission is free so put the date in your calendar and make it along to the Manly West State School and P&C WOW Festival. You will find the school at 226 Manly Road right opposite the Manly Veterinary Hospital.
