Forbes North Public School will open its gates to the community for its annual fete this Friday.

The P&C Association, along with staff at the school, has been busy preparing.

“It’s been a fantastic lead up and we have had so much support from the local community towards our fete,” Forbes North Public School P&C President Natalie Walker said. “It really has been great.”

This year the fete is not only about supporting the school, but individuals who are making a difference in the lives of others. 

Year 5 student Marnie Blake will be shaving her hair for the World’s Greatest Shave at the fete at 6pm, and members of the Forbes Breast Cancer Support group will be there, collecting donations for Kerry Dunstan’s walk for CanAssist.

“Our fete is not just about our school this year, it’s about supporting others in the community,” Mrs. Walker said.

“We are super excited to be helping Marnie and Kerry this year and we would love to encourage others to come along and support these two amazing people in our community.”

The fete will have stalls and rides, performances by school captain Ruby Markwort and Forbes High School student Georgia Palazzi and a karate demonstration by Central West Kyokoshin Karate.

The Forbes Rodeo bucking bull will be there along with young cowboy Jake Tomlinson and everyone’s favourite the snake catcher Paul Newcombe will make an appearance.

Gates will open on Friday March 16 at 4:30pm at Forbes North Public School via Thomson Street.
