Gunnedah High School is preparing to host a community fair on Friday.
The fair will kick off at 5pm on the school’s oval and will feature food stalls, novelty events, a dunking machine, jumping castle, face painting, white elephant stall, Just Dance competition, and dance, music and drama performances. There will be a twilight screening of the film The Boss Baby.
Teacher Adam Mooney is among the organisers and said all the funds raised at the fair will go to the school P&C to be used for various projects around the school.
“We’re trying to get the community back into the school and really showcase what our kids are like and the activities and things they’ve been doing,” he said.
“It’s an opportunity to come in and enjoy interacting with the kids at the school.”
Mr Mooney said students are actively involved, preparing food, running activities and performing.
“It’s an opportunity for them to utilise different skills that they don’t every day; to take a bit of pride into some of their work they’re doing at school,” he said.
“And it’s also something as bit different and fun and engage to get in and enjoy and do.”
