And the same is true of our neighbourhood school. Our community is made up mostly of families with an at-home mom, so our parent council is very active. The community is very involved in the school and the school is very much a part of the community.
The highlight of the year for our school community is the year-end Family Fun Fair. Extravagant and over-the-top compared to most school fun fairs our council goes crazy with an unbeatable end-of-year celebration for the students and their families. Bouncy castles, obstacles courses, an inflatable gladiator ring; motorized racecars and motorcycles, a spinning carnival ride; a dance competition, a watermelon eating contest, games and prizes, face painting; burgers and sausages on the barbeque and ice cream trucks and and a field full of vendor tents with food.
It's an amazing way to celebrate the end of the school year and get together as a community and something our family looks forward to all year.
