Entertainment, yummy food, fairground rides at school fair
On Saturday 7th September 2019 from 11.00 through to 4.00pm, St Dympna's State Primary School, which is located at 491 Robinson Road, West Aspley, invites you to help them celebrate their annual St Dympna's Fair. This fair is the biggest fundraising event of the year for P&F Committee and this year's line-up of stalls, rides and food will have everyone enthusiastic for more.
Pre-purchased wristbands for the rides and tickets will be distributed to the eldest child on Friday 6th September at school. If any child is absent or any reason, these wristbands and tickets may be collected by the ride tickets stand at the Fair. Pre-purchased wristbands are a much cheaper way than to purchase them on the day.
Grade 1 is $35 Wristband, Prep & Pre-school aged children only is $25 Wristband with any wristbands purchased on the day will be $40 for everyone including prep and younger children. Single Ride Tickets for Miami Trip, Dodgem Cars, Cha Cha, Caveman Capers and Video Gaming Truck are $5.00 each, while Single Ride Tickets for Bat Tower, Jumping Castle, Merry Go Round and Super Slide are $3.00 each. All children receive three (3) slide turns on the Super Slide.
Terms and Conditions for pre-purchasing of tickets are that there are no refunds for inclement weather, ride changes or unused tickets. Changes to the type of rides are outside the control of the school. All orders for the pre-purchased tickets if received by 2nd September 2019, will go into a draw to win a FREE wristband. There will be one free wristband for the junior and senior schools.
So much fun and activity will have everyone looking for food to kill their hunger pains and they will not be disappointed with the variety on offer. The choice may be difficult with yummy food from Angelo's Pasta, Thai Food Van, Yatai Japanese Street Food, Sausage Sizzle and Outback Steakhouse. Also available is fairy floss, snow cones and popcorn, strawberries an ice cream, tea garden, coffee van, Boost Juice and Bar – something for every taste-bud.

While the children are enjoying themselves on the rides, parents may like to wander around the stalls, which include a plant sale, bookstall, delicious cakes, second-hand corner and Cent Auction. Don't forget to try your luck on the laughing clowns, or try out on putt a buck, lob a choc or dare an adventure into the haunted house. Dads may like to have fun and get wet on the super sucker. Before your day is done, do not forget to purchase show bags to take home.
A lot of work behind the scenes goes into making a day like this a success. If you would like to volunteer some time either on the day or before the fair, it would be much appreciated. Volunteer sign-up page can be located here. All the volunteer jobs are very easy with no prior experience required.
All proceeds raised from thefair goes back to the students and their school to improve education and facilities for everyone. Entry into the fair is free. Jot Saturday 7th September 2019 in your diary as a fun-filled day for the whole family. Bring your neighbours and friends as well.
