Aussie as apple pie

All set for the Apple Fair. 150814


IT’S all apples at Ocean Grove Primary School this week as students prepare for the annual Apple Fair.
The kids have been having fun in the school’s kitchen, cooking apple pies and devouring apple slinkies.
As well as the usual apple-themed food, this year’s fair will feature a wide variety of music to get people moving.
Six-piece collective Junglebeat will play reggae, African jazz and funk, while the Blueliners will perform old-school blues.
They’ll be joined by long-time Bellarine songwriter Andrea and The Apple Fairies.
“The Apple Fairies are a collective of Ocean Grove Primary School parents playing the hits you love,” said fair music co-ordinator Phil Turnour.
“They’ve been a highlight for every fair back to 2010.”
The twilight fair will include the usual kids’ activities and carnival rides, including the Cha Cha, the Cup and Saucer, ponies and inflatables.
Also getting the students excited are posters around the school asking “Who’s Pip?”
“They’ll just have to wait until the fair to find out,” said fair organiser and teacher Em Kaiser.
The Fair starts at 4pm on 11 March.
