THOUSANDS enjoyed a day of strawberry delights this month at Wallington Primary’s 32nd Strawberry Fair.
Some of the fair’s treats were so popular they sold out well before the end of the day, fair committee member Tracey Frigo said.
“We ran out of choc-dipped strawberries and homemade jams – which is always a good problem to have,” she said. “People are always amazed that a little school can put on such a great fair.”
Wallington Primary welcomed new fair mascot, Berry Bliss, who was named in a school competition.
The school’s Grade 6 students took turns as Berry Bliss, much to the delight of youngsters.
“Kids love a mascot,” Tracey said. “There were little ones running up to hug it, which was very cute.”
Grade 5 students took charge of another fair-first, the kid’s stall, selling a multitude of strawberry-themed crafts they had made during the year.
School principal Leigh McLaren said the Strawberry Fair raised about $24,000, exceeding its target, with more than 7000 people attending.
Tracey said the fair went smoothly thanks to the school’s 154 students and their parents.
“Pretty much all the parents are involved in one way or another,” she said.
