With great weather and the sun shining, the Canberra Grammar School community was able to enjoy a terrific day of exciting activities at the 2015 CGS Fete on Saturday 28 March.
In addition to over 30 stalls selling a variety of treasures for a bargain, there was the P&F Silent Auction held in the new The Snow Centre, a variety of rides, and the always impressive petting zoo.
The Fete also included a variety of food stalls in the Quad, but this year there were two new exciting additions, including the Garnsey House’s Tastes of Asia Stall and Edwards House’s Gelato Cart.
For entertainment during the day, the community were treated to a variety of performances from the CGS and CGGS Bands, and a display of the acting skills of the boys with the Year 11 Drama production, “Eating ice cream with your eyes closed”.
This year also saw Mr Stan Platis –a member of the CGS Foundation Board – volunteer to step into the role of Fete Announcer for 2015. With a new sound system, Stan was able to actively roam around the extensive campus and engage the local community and stallholders, creating a vibrant and interactive atmosphere through the day.
The day was a great success with everyone coming together to celebrate with the CGS community, and spend a day out with family and friends.
Thank you to the local businesses and families who donated and supported the 2015 Fete, and to the volunteers who supported it. The proceeds from the day will go to further continuing to develop and enhance the School’s facilities and grounds.
