TWO WEEKS TO GO! WOW! Our Spring Fair is fast approaching and the excitement is growing! Thanks to our many volunteers who are giving their time to help us at the Spring Fair. Your support means that we are raising funds for the new Commboxes for our children!

HOWEVER… we are still well short of the required man hours to make this Spring Fair a success! We know we are asking for a lot and pushing the boundaries. The Spring Fair Committee is looking for Mums, Dads, older siblings (over the age of 10), grandparents, friends or lovers who can help out! Even if you are able to help for just for 30 minutes or so that would be wonderful! If you are able to assist, please contact us!!!!!

We desperately need help on the following stalls and activities.

  • Canteen Coordinator & Assistants (min. 5 assistants needed)
  • Chocolate Wheel – selling tickets, spinning the wheel and handing out the prizes. Remember there is a major prize available to be given away! (x 2)
  • An Amusement Coordinator who can supervise our rides – Jumping Castle, Giant Slides and the Wipeout
  • Assistants for the Amusement Rides (min. 3)
  • Assistant for our Photo Booth
  • Sponsorship and Prize sourcing
  • Old Fashioned Lemonade Stall (x1)
  • P & C Pop-up (x1)
  • Bookshop (x 3)
  • Games Arena – Corn Bag Toss (x1)
  • Tattoos (x 2)
  • Face Painting (x 1)

If you want to take on one of these roles then simply contact Glenys Rhodes on 0408619355 or email fundraising@tackingpointpandc.org.au.

Thank you.

TOP 3 THINGS to do for the Spring Fair this week

Offer-up yourself as a Volunteer

Pot-up for the Plant Stall

Donate on ODD SOCK DAY



The Canteen has always been the hub of the Fair! People need food. Unfortunately, it is the one area where we are really desperate for help! ☹

The Canteen provides our fairgoers with an array of snacks, drinks, coffee, salads and ice-creams as well as providing an Order & Pay function for our main BBQ. Without the Canteen, we fail to service our busy BBQ’s but also YOU, your family and our guests!


What would I be doing?

  • Taking orders and payment for the BBQ
  • Cash handling
  • Assist prepping salads
  • Over-the-counter sales of:
    • Ice-creams
    • Slushies
    • Cold drinks
    • Snacks
  • Assist in cleaning



We are ever so grateful to Hastings Secondary College (Westport Campus) in providing the Hospitality Students as Baristas! We hear they make a great coffee and we look forward to them being part of our Fair and gaining some valuable real-life experience.

The Students are all hosting a Mini-Sports Arena to support their own fundraising efforts so we ask that you show our community spirit by visiting and donating for their stall. This is Community at its best.



Our prepaid Spring Fair SuperSaver Pre-purchase Ticket Sale is now OPEN!

The SuperSaver represents great value for money. We have tried very hard to keep the cost of the Fair to the bare minimum. To ensure that our parents receive value for money we are again offering you the opportunity to pre-purchase a SuperSaver Ticket at $20.00 per ticket. Here’s what you get:

  • 1 Sausage sizzle
  • 1 Drink
  • 1 Quelch
  • 1 entry to the Jumping Castle
  • 1 entry to either the Nerf Target Zone OR Corn Bag Toss
  • 1 entry to either Sponge-a-Mate or Disco
  • 1 Showbags (retail value $10.00) & 1 Glow Stick

If you do not wish to take advantage of our pre-paid SuperSaver offer, tickets can be purchased for rides and activities at the ticket booth on the day instead. However, the price of the ticket will be $25.00.

Contrary to previous information given, tickets will be available for collection from the Ticket Booth on the day of the Fair. They are NOT available before the Fair.

Guests of families are welcome to purchase as well!


Odd Sock Day

Wednesday 24 October is ODD SOCK WEDNESDAY but only if you are donating to our Spring Fair! Odd Sock Wednesday has always been a fun day where the children get to wear odd socks in exchange for bringing in a donated item!

  • Bottled water or Juice for our Drinks Stall
  • Books, CD’S, DVD’s for our Book Stall
  • Xbox 1 and PS4 Games for the Games Trading Table
  • Scarves, belts and hats for our Sassy Scarf Stall
  • Packet Seeds for the Garden Station

Spring Fair Sponsorship Needs You!


Sponsorship is an integral part of our making our Spring Fair 2018 a success. This year through the Spring Fair, we are hoping to raise sufficient funds to install the latest in interactive whiteboard technology into our classrooms.

We are seeking sponsorships in the form of:

  • CASH SPONSORSHIPS to help offset the cost of running the Spring Fair, enabling profits to go directly to achieving our fundraising goals
  • IN-KIND SUPPORT such as facilities hire (e.g. Marquees, BBQ and eskies), product donations for our Chocolate Wheel, a LEGO prize for the LEGO Competition or a prize for the Colouring-In Competition, food and drink items for the food stalls, entertainment and signage to name a few!

In exchange for your generous support, we will be happy to promote your business within our school network and to the wider community. You are welcome to display your business sign, hand out brochures etc.! Limitless!

 The P & C wishes to thank the following local businesses for their support of our Spring Fair:
