THE Surfside Primary School Fresh Food Fair is moving to a twilight event for the first time, bringing a carnival atmosphere to the festivities.
The be held on Friday 28 October from 3.15pm, the popular community event will be a celebratory evening of food, music, market stalls, rides and much more.
Principal Mark Huglin said the move to a twilight event had excited the school community.
“Everyone is really looking forward to celebrating the FFF 10th year as the sun goes down. The live music and pop-up food stalls will be a highlight,” Mr Huglin said.
The schoolgrounds will be completely transformed on the night of the fair, with a student art show, buskers, live music from Sam Hanson, The Rouse Band, The Surfside Band and more, a classic car show being added to the night.
Favourites such as carnival rides, sideshow games, animal farm and a classic bake sale will also be there.
The Fresh Food Fair is the school’s major fund-raising event for the year, with proceeds supporting their Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden program. The school’s purpose-built commercial kitchen and award-winning garden give Surfside students the opportunity to gain hands-on cooking experience.
“Our kitchen garden program is part of who we are at Surfside Primary School,” Mr Huglin said.
“The kitchen garden program services eight classes, where the students learn about cooking, healthy eating and gardening as well as team work, problem solving and creativity. It’s an integral part of the education experience at the school.”
“The Fresh Food Fair is a spectacular celebration of our kitchen garden program, as well as a big fund-raising event to ensure we can continue it in 2017.”
