Congratulations and thank you to everyone who played a part in our Country Fair on Saturday. It was a phenomenal success!

Our FOAS committee deserve high praise for their outstanding co-ordination of our annual fundraiser! Year after year they put together a fantastic fair experience for visitors to our school. They cope with the myriad of demands associated with running an event of this size and quality, add a little value each year and solve the challenges presented by the fairs growth in popularity. As always the highlight for me is seeing the Appleby community come together in support of their school. The efforts of current families, students, staff, past families, locals, grandparents, friends, sponsors and business owners combine to make it a special day!

A word of acknowledgement received from Dr Nick Smith, MP Nelson who attended our fair on Saturday.

Big congratulations on the success of your school fair. Great food, music and activities and massive organisational task with this size of crowd. Whole event was a real credit to the school and community. Big thanks to all involved.
