2. What is the history of the event?
The school motto is to give our best to be our best and the Easter Fair is a perfect example. The fair has been running for 40 years and continues to have a wonderful endorsement of support from the community behind it with over a hundred different businesses and families donating time, money and prizes to the event. Wendy Caple - The Inverloch Primary School Principal has commented on the impact the fundraising has made on the school. "Our grounds are looking amazing and are becoming more weather-proof with shade for hot days and re-surfacing of the oval to stand up to wet winters. None of this would be possible without the fundraising from the Easter Fair."

This year, we have secured even more prizes for our raffle and silent auction. Some of the artwork and photography is bespoke to Inverloch and a great keepsake for tourists and holiday makers or locals who want a local piece of art in their home.

Whether you buy a mystery bag, partake in Devonshire teas, or stock up on jams and chutneys, you ultimately will be investing in the school’s growth. As Inverloch Primary School was funded by the government for the build, now, parents and friends fundraise for the additional and on-going needs of the students. Take a look around; all the equipment you see around the grounds is a result of our community support at the Easter Fair.
Inverloch Primary School prides itself on quality education and addressing the needs of the student community. The Easter Fair is a special fundraising day that helps support their academic and social efforts. The entire community comes out—kids, parents, local business people, and friends—to achieve the vital goals of the school.
