Food and Drink
We cater to meat lovers and vegetarians, and have enough variety to satisfy everyone. Our food stalls will all be operating from 3pm until 8pm (unless noted differently below) so bring the family for afternoon tea and dinner!
Thanks to the lovely people at Berengarra, we have the coolest coffee and the best baristas. The coffee will be delicious, come and enjoy a cup or two. Tea, coffee and hot chocolate will be served with some sweet treats.
You can have a seat away from the hustle and bustle of the fete, compare the goodies you have bought and won, refresh with a lovely cuppa and go out and do it all again
The café will be operating from 1.30pm.
Decorate your own cupcakes
It may get a little messy but that will just add to the fun! It is simple – buy a cupcake, add your own toppings…from icing to sprinkles…the range will be amazing so let your imagination go nuts! The best bit? Once you have decorated it you get to eat it!
Due to the outstanding success of the egg n’ bacon rolls at our last couple of events they are making an appearance at the fete, but strictly limited to early birds, so don’t miss out!
The BBQers will be serving up delicious sausages and we’ll throw in bread, sauce, mustard and onions – we’ll even give you a napkin too!
But that’s not all, delicious hamburgers (including a vegetarian option) will be flipped on the grill as well.
Thanks to the local Rotary team for helping us out on the grill!
Woodstack Fire and Food will be offering wood fired pizza with a range of toppings to satisfy your pizza craving. Just ask our Year 3 and 4 students how good these pizzas are!
Greek Taste Temptations
Let’s Meat Up will be providing a tempting fare – Souvlaki and those thick hot chips we all wish we could make! The boys at Let’s Meat Up Greek Grill will be cooking up a storm on their chargrill with choices of meat such as lamb, chicken or pork belly. Good luck deciding which you prefer, ‘cos it will be a little bit like eeni meeni minie mo!!!
For something a little different try the range of Thai food that will be available at Thai Grandma’s Kitchen. Spring rolls to noodles…and maybe a few international dishes thrown in!
**Soft drinks and water will also be available at the BBQ stall, Café and Popcorn Stall.

PA Cake Stall
There will be cakes made in abundance. Many of the school parents (that’s Mum’s, Dad’s and a few grandparents) will be baking for the cake stall to bring you their favourite recipe. It might be Lemon slice, or lemon sponge, a fruit cake or melting moments. The hard part will be which one to choose!
It is a lucky dip with a difference! Each jar has a prize…or maybe more than one…what will your lucky dip ticket get you? There are chocolates, jewellery, money, cards, games, knick knacks and so much more…these sell out quickly so don’t miss out!
