St Joseph's School event drew more than a thousand

The recent fair at St Joseph’s School attracted more than a thousand people.

Fire works were the high light - literally. Principal Maria Mowle was one of the helpers when the touch paper was lit. Picture: Daniel Hayden.

There was a definite and unmissable highlight – fireworks to light up the wider sky above town on the clear Friday night.

Back on earth, there were 42 stalls, and also competitions – one grand prize in the raffle involved a holiday to Hamilton Island.

Apart from barbecue and sausage sizzle, there were also stalls offering food from other countries, like Turkish cuisine.

The fund-raising fair was organised by the school’s Parents and Friends’ Association.

There was music plus dancing by the Glen Innes Highland Dancers and the Star Avenue Dance Centre.
