Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2016 Week 3 Hansard (10 March) . .

Page.. 1021..

Madam Speaker, I would also like briefly to talk about an event that I know is high on your calendar. This year, Hawker Primary School is celebrating its 40th anniversary, and one of its special celebrations will be the annual fete which this year is being held on Sunday, 3 April from 10 am to 2 pm. Fetes are always great events. They are enormously hard work for the organisers, usually the school P&C, but they are also usually the biggest single fundraiser in the school calendar, and profits from fetes go to equip schools with so many important things.

The Hawker fete this year is a smorgasbord of food, cakes, barista coffee, wine tasting, and a variety of activities. Obviously the good parents of Hawker have worked out that the way to a parent's contribution is through their taste buds. The highlights on the school fete flyer are the French crepes, barista coffee, wine tasting, international food stalls, homemade cakes, jams and preserves, fresh produce, eggs and plants. The number of items and activities is almost endless.

The flyer also talks about some of the other items on show, including thousands of books. I will be very much involved in that, and get into trouble when I get home. There are clothes, women's accessories, toys, a white elephant stall and a craft stall focused on creating beautiful upcycled gifts. I congratulate the school community on having such a full program of activities. I would especially like to commend Emma Dykes and Suze Carr, the fete coordinators, for their enthusiastic marketing and for being so proactive in publicising their fete widely. I wish them every success, good weather and a big crowd.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

The Assembly adjourned at 6.15 pm until Tuesday, 5 April 2016 at 10 am.
