Festival on Forbes


Only 4 weeks to the 2019 Green Festival on Forbes!

There’s only 4 weeks to go until the Fabulous Green Festival on Forbes! As always, we need help from the whole SCEGGS community to create a wonderful fun-filled event that the whole family will enjoy and raise funds for the new Wilkinson House building project.

Everyone is encouraged to donate all their unwanted books and vintage clothing for the stalls. Please drop them in at the General Office. The Book Stall needs books in good condition. We also need sturdy boxes to transport the books, so please bring your book donations in a box or strong bag if you have one handy. Please ensure your good quality donated clothing, shoes and accessories for the Vintage Clothing & Handbag Stall are clean and ready for immediate sale.

The Fair Committee also needs donations of bottles of wine and prizes for all ages valued from $10 for the Coin Toss and Chocolate Wheel. We also need a range of prizes for the Silent Auction, such as hampers, work experience opportunities, holiday home stays, concert tickets, art, gift certificates, beauty products, fashion and homewares etc.

Don’t forget to volunteer an hour of your time on the day to help out on your stall - contact your Class Parents and ask how you can help. We also need lots of strong and energetic volunteers to help pack up after the fair from 3pm to 4pm (or a bit longer). The School's Maintenance team work very hard in the weeks leading up to the Festival, but they only have a few hours on Sunday afternoon to have classrooms ready for school on Monday. We would love 20 volunteers to please give them a hand.

Student Craft Stalls
This year for the first time, students will have the opportunity to sell arts and crafts they have made and anyone from Year 5 and above can participate. All sales from this stall will contribute to total funds raised from the Fair. Student arts and crafts can be delivered to either the Primary or Secondary Office by Friday 16 August. For more information please contact Shahnaz Irani

We look forward to seeing you all at the Green Festival on Forbes on Sunday 25 August.
