Win a vocal recording and production session at Studios 301 in the Festival on Forbes Silent Auction on Sunday 25 August. It’s just one of the amazing prizes in this year’s Silent Auction, with the full-day session valued at $1500, generously donated by Studios 301 to work with Grammy nominated, ARIA Award winning vocal engineer Simon Cohen. Simon recorded the vocals for Justin Bieber's worldwide smash hit “Love Yourself” and has worked with international artists like Jessica Mauboy, Troye Sivan, Illy and Starley.

The Fair Committee still needs donations for Silent Auction prizes and there’s only three weeks to go! Popular prizes for the Silent Auction include hampers, work experience opportunities, holiday home stays, concert tickets, art, gift certificates, beauty products, fashion and homewares.

This year we are lucky to have three roving photographers kindly provided by Michaela Lawrence from Photoflyer For just $2 you can have your photo taken in front of one of our photo backdrops and receive a Festival on Forbes framed momento.

The Year 9 Gourmet Pantry Stall invites anyone in the school community to donate jams, chutneys or other gourmet treats – please contact Susan Bray on 0421 950 806 or email

The Vintage Clothing and Book Stalls are calling for donations NOW so please take the opportunity to clear out your bookshelves and wardrobes! While you are it, got any old bras you don’t need? The Green Team are now collecting unwanted new and used bras for homeless women to donate to the Wayside Chapel. Look for the clearly marked basket outside the Maintenance Office (beside the stairs leading up to the chapel opposite the honours board).

We also need your unwanted coffee mugs for our cafes at the fair, (please make sure they are 11cm or less in height).

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