A fun day out for the whole family is guaranteed when you visit the Teven-Tintenbar Public School’s Country Fair on Saturday 18 September from 9.30am-3pm.

“The day caters for all ages and tastes, with a huge variety of fresh local produce, great food, creative crafts, fun-filled activities for the kids, and lots of live entertainment,” said school principal Ginny Latta.

“This is our Country Fair’s 16th year, and we are hoping to top last year’s excellent total of $13,000. Proceeds from the day will be used to purchase new interactive whiteboards for our classrooms, which provide our students with a more relevant curriculum.”

Visitors to the Fair will have the opportunity to purchase a range of wholesome local produce, including a mega cake stall, native Australian jams and preserves, cut flowers and the ever-popular plant stall.

Bargain hunters will love the bric-a-brac and toys stall, and there will be an abundance of second-hand books and beautiful craft for sale.

For the kids there will be a jumping castle, teacups ride, giant slide and laser skirmish, candle making, face painting, a magician, plaster moulds, kids activity zone, sieve-a-gem, show bags, plus lots more fun competitions and activities including a treasure hunt.

Free live entertainment will run throughout the day, and includes performances by Alstonville Public School Band, the LSTT Band, Heart of Dance, and the Teven Tintenbar school choir and recorder group.

There will be raffles and competitions on offer including a Chocolate Wheel, with great prizes on offer which have been donated by local businesses.

“There will be an abundance of food stalls to tantalise the taste buds. We will have our T&T Café selling gourmet cakes, tea and fresh fruit salad, and locally grown Echidna Coffee will be joining us again. In addition, we will have stalls selling pies, hotdogs, sushi and our crowd-pleasing BBQ stall,” Ms Latta said.

“School parents, teachers and students are working extremely hard to put the final touches on what promises to be a great day. Put the date into your diary and come along to see what a great local school can achieve, whilst enjoying the ambience of one of the hinterlands most scenic locations.”

Teven-Tintenbar Public School is located in Fredericks Lane, Tintenbar.
