St John’s Girls’ School Centenary Fair will be held at the school at 349 Dee St on October 28, 11am-2pm.

Event organiser Louise Purdon said the fair included a giant auction, a white elephant stall, pony rides, face painting, a “wacky hair” stall where children could get their hair coloured, glittered and styled, food stalls and barbecue, a bouncy castle, raffles and mini jeep rides.

Deputy principal Nathan Hughes said the fair would give pupils the learning experience of making their own products and teach them financial literacy.

It was also an opportunity for them to meet former pupils, he said.

Centenary photos would be taken at 1pm, and the Old Girls’ Games would take place from 2pm.

Mr Hughes said past and present pupils, parents, staff and anyone associated with the school were welcome to attend any of the centennial events.
