In celebration of all that is great about being a part of a strong and family-focused community, the highly-anticipated St Leonard’s College Community Day Fair was a marvellous event that fulfilled all expectations this year.
On Saturday 18 March, our beautiful College grounds transformed into a vibrant market, and came alive with food stalls, live entertainment and a thrilling carnival.
The Fair was buzzing with thousands of excited guests from our local community filling the College. With everything from paella to a classic sausage sizzle, the food stalls offered a variety of market snacks, gelato and delicious snowcones for everyone to enjoy.
The entertainment offered something for everyone including bubble soccer, skateboarding lessons, a visit from the Melbourne United Community Bus, and not to mention our very own students who shared their talents in Cheer Sports, music and art. Throughout the fair stalls, the crowd loved getting special surprises made for them by the caricature artists, and feeding all sorts of friendly animals in the mini farm.
This year, the Community Day Fair raised funds for the establishment of a Food Truck service project, which will give our students an opportunity to reach out and serve the community by building positive relationships with people who may be experiencing homelessness and suffering social poverty.
The Community Day Fair 2017 would not have been possible without the fantastic effort by many passionate volunteers from our College community. The College extends its most sincere appreciation to the Community Day Fair committee, as well as to the team of dedicated parents for their continuous support and hard work.
St Leonard’s College would like to thank everyone that was involved with this special event, and we look forward to welcoming everyone again to the next Community Day Fair in 2018.
