A record 20 students of Red Beach School ran their own stalls at the Twilight Fair on Friday, March 19.
The stalls featured products they had made themselves and several also ran fun games such as eating dangling doughnuts without using your hands. The children also offered face painting, food and crafts.
The fair also had a range of other stalls, food and entertainment on offer.
Lockdown meant that it was postponed by one week, but the school’s community committee co-chair, Shelley Ozturk, says that had only a minimal impact.
“It was a good community activity bringing in all the parents and students, and we’re very happy about that,” she says.
Around $12,000 was raised, which Shelley says goes towards supporting the school curriculum.
“School donations and fundraising opportunities took a hit due to Covid. Essentially we are in fundraising catch up mode,” she says.
