We need your help!

We need your Help

Our families and volunteers have thankfully always freely given their time and support to the P & C. The Schoolyard Twilight Market is being organised by a small group of enthusiastic volunteers however we need a little more help on the night to ensure the success and safety of our market!

We are in need of 5-6 people to help us out mainly in supervising the Kids Activities! This would involve ensuring that kids abide by the rules, taking timed turns and collecting gold coin donations! For the chocolate wheel its a case of encouraging people to buy tickets to win, selling the tickets, assist in giving out prizes and ensuring the safety of our guests while the wheel is spinning!

We would greatly appreciate any time or support that you give!

If you are able to help, please complete the attached form and return to the canteen or contact either Amanda or Glenys (0408619355) or via email to fundraising@tackingpointpandc.org.au

Thanking You!

Yes! We/I would love to help out!

The Schoolyard Twilight Market is on it’s way!


You’ve seen our Facebook posts and Expressions of Interest for Stallholders so now we can finally say YES!!! Our Market is on!

As you know, every second year we hold our Spring Fair that involves a great deal of support from parents and teachers who give their time, creativity and financial support willingly. In our off-Spring Fair year, the    P & C decided to hold an event where very little support from the school community would be required giving us all a well-deserved break! It was time to give back a little, so…

Ta dah!

The Schoolyard Twilight Market!

This is the very first time that we have ever held an event of this type and we really do need your support to make this event exciting and extra special just by joining us!

Our Schoolyard Twilight Market is promising to be a really fun, family night out with an eclectic mix of stalls, artisan produce and delicious food cooked by our highly regarded Tong masters!  Read on to discover what’s on at the Market!

Our wonderful “Tongmasters Extraordinaire” will be BBQíng up a storm of sausages, chicken burgers, steak sandwiches and fresh, barbequed corn!

So have the night off and come down to our BBQ!

Our Schoolground Café will be offering Holy Goat Coffee not to mention an array of drinks, home-baked goodies, ice-creams and snacks.

There will also be a snow-cone van located in the Children’s Area!

If you run a small home-based handmade, homemade, homegrown or home produced business we would love to hear from you and would welcome your attendance at our market.

We are looking for people to be part of an additional “Emporium-style” co-operative stall. We are looking for four to five stallholders to combine as one and we are able to assist in arranging the finer details for you! Curious?  Then email us at fundraising@tackingpointpandc.org.au for details!

Spin that Wheel!

Your P and C will be giving away loads of prizes at the Chocolate Wheel! This is your chance to win a great variety of prizes donated by our stallholders and local businesses just to add to all the fun.

We are in need of a “Chocolate Wheel Host” so if you think you have what it takes to spin that wheel for our lucky prizewinners, contact us now!

Tickets will be available on the night from our special Chocolate Wheel spinners!



Kids Activities!

We said there was something for everyone at our Schoolyard Twilight Market and there is!

The folks from Red Shed Hire are helping us out so there will be a Jumping Castle and a Gladiator Ring for all of the children!

We will also have the “World’s Longest Colouring-In” table for all the little (and the not so little) Picasso’s out there with a chance to win a very special prize!

You can even have your face-painted or collect a balloon or two sculptured by a very special balloon artist from the wonderful!



The Port Macquarie Golf Club has even donated a mini Putt-Putt Golf for the evening for the budding golfers!

So with all these activities, we are sure you will be entertained!


Working behind the scenes to bring you this event has been a very small group of sub-committee members who have convinced (well, maybe bribed) their partners to help.

To ensure the safety and success of this event we do require a little bit of volunteer help. We need at least four – five volunteers to help us out on the night.

We need volunteers to oversee the:

  • Putt-Putt Golf
  • Jumping Castle
  • Gladiator Pit x 2
  • A boisterous spruiker for the Chocolate Wheel!

So if you are free and don’t mind lending a hand, please let us know!
