IEPS Fun Fair - Less than two weeks to go!!

Are you getting excited about the Fair? The committee sure is. So much work is going in to bringing you a fantastic day on October 21. The rides are going to be fantastic. The food stalls and the market stalls are really varied and full of

interesting things to look at and buy on the day. Remember – you can tell your friends to come along, it’s not just for the kids, it’s for the whole community.

Friday is a big day this week! Two fair related actions for families

1.     Pre-purchase to save time and money

Buy your All Day Ride wristbands and your pre-purchase food vouchers by Friday. We have left the Trybooking site open this week because of school holidays. It must close on Friday to give the Fair team time to collate all the

wristbands and vouchers for collection next week.

2.     Last minute raffle ticket sales.

The raffle sales have been going really well, but now is the time for a last minute push. Any ticket is still a winner!

Can you please finalise all ticket sales by Thursday to have the raffle books, unsold tickets and cash back to the front office or your teacher by this Friday 13th October.

The cake stall, other stalls and ways you can help

A reminder that we need cakes, slices, tarts etc. for sale at the cake stall on the day. You can buy or make a cake. Cake Packs were sent home on Tuesday with the eldest child but if you need, more they are available from the office.

Please bring them in on Friday 20 October and leave them in the Performing Arts Room or on fair day before 10am.

In previous years, the Cake Stall has often had a few very grand cakes to raffle off which has proven to be a significant contribution to fundraising on the day.  If we have any extraordinary master bakers in our midst wiling to create a

masterpiece, please step forward now! We would love to perhaps see a Gingerbread house, Halloween Feature cake or Super Hero themed cake available for raffle on the day.  Please contact Sarah Pranoto on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

You should also know by now if you are needed for any duties during the Fair. Your class rep will have been in touch. If you have any more time to spare on the Friday or Sunday to help us get set up or clean up please let Honor Kelly

know at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

 

Get ready for an amazing jam stall at the fair – yum!

For the last 6 months, the 1A and 1K Mums have been very busy beavers! They have made over 1200 jars of yummy jams, sauces, dressings and preserves.  Mondays for the last few months in the OSH Club have definitely been more

aromatic than usual, as that has been action central.  Some days it has been savoury and others the sweet smell of Jam simmering away.  

We know the Jam Stall will be very popular!  If you want to get in early, the kind stallholders will hold large purchases that are paid for until 5pm. Great for those who are working on another stall or don’t want to lug around 13 jars of jam

whilst you watch your ‘angel’ on the rides, come and buy early and then leave it them!

The fantastic menu

Sauces: Tomato Sauce (Ketchup Style), Butterscotch, Chilli Sauce (Mild and Hot)

Relishes:  Tomato, Zucchini, Cauliflower, 

Jams:        Strawberry, Raspberry, Fruit of the Forest, Mango Chilli

Dressing:  Poppy seed. 

Plus a sample pack - 4 small jars of different products - a perfect last minute ‘small’ Christmas present.  

Fair Talent Show

Talent Show performers are ready to rock at Fair! There will be dancing, singing and some unique acts as well as the IEPS Spectacular Choir and Strings Ensemble. 

There will be two final rehearsals Friday lunchtime - this Friday (13/10) for non dancers and next Friday (20/10) for dancers. Come with your music/equipment and as much of your costume as you can.

Thank you to everyone who auditioned! You were all wonderful.

The Fun Fair is getting closer - time to get involved!

It’s getting really busy in the lead up to the Fun Fair and we need lots of parent assistance in the coming weeks to make it the fantastic event we all want it to be. It’s only 6 weeks to go (and two of those are school holidays!)  This year

we are not requiring the extensive donations that we have in the past, but we do still need you to get involved with a few things.  We will be sending a detailed flyer home this week with lots of information on the Fair, but if you want a

quick snapshot of what you need to do this week here it is!

This years’ raffle is the best we have ever had. The first prize is worth over $9,500 and the total raffle prize pool is close to $20,000. Raffle ticket books and information sheets will be sent home this week. Sell  them to family, friends,

colleagues and of course buy a few yourself!

4.       Volunteer.

information from your class rep to get in to schedule you in for to help on the day of the Fair.

 

Help us sell the IEPS raffle tickets in the local community!

The raffle tickets will be ready for sale this week and the Fair Committee need help from parents to help sell raffle tickets over the next few weekends at some of the local shopping centres.  We have secured selling stalls at Ivanhoe

Plaza, Warringal Shopping Centre and Woolworths Ivanhoe and we are asking for volunteers to give an hour or so of their time to sell the tickets to shoppers.  Please let us know ASAP your willingness to help. Eglantine Genesty is
