Dearest Grammar Parents, Friends, and extended families, we are thrilled to be able to invite you to our Great Grammar Fair - a celebration of our fabulous Grammar community. Gates shall open at 2.30pm so you can collect your wrist bands, maps and perhaps a bite to eat, in preparation for our Carnival which starts at 3pm and concludes at 6pm.
Cowper Field shall be brimming with amusement rides, slides and more! The Basketball Court shall host the Primary Laserwarrior Games (years 3-6 and beyond, perhaps a parents vs progeny game anyone?), whilst the Infants Laserwarrior Games shall take place on Cowper. Watch out for the stellar dunkees - as our teachers and coaches step up to be dunked in the Dunk Tank. Hold a tiliqua rugosa (better known as a shingleback skink) and distinguish its head from its tail, amongst many other lizards, frogs, turtles, snakes, and insects at the marvellous Feature Creatures Exhibit.
Test your mettle at our HOLEY MOLEY: Its Shrek's Mini Golf 18-hole course. Get your face painted, your arm tattooed, create a masterpiece, or paint a plaster cast at our Kids Creation Zone.
Feeling hungry? Fear not, you shall find burgers, sausages, pies, and cold drinks at the Cowper Deli (at the rotunda); Pizzas, fruit cups and drinks at the Great Grammar Trattoria (in the tuckshop); Cakes, slices, popcorn, jelly cups, cordials and Pure Gelato ice creams and sorbets at Carrington's Cafe (in the covered courtyard outside tuck).
Finally, the day shall conclude with the Great Grammar School Dance 6.30pm to 7.30pm. Watch the boys strut the choreographed moves they have perfected this term and last during sports classes, led by the sensational team at RedED. Siblings and parents most welcome to join in the frolicking fray!
A day guaranteed to linger long in the memories of all that attend - ensure you secure your attendance and purchase your tickets today!
