It was a perfect autumn day and Middleton Public School celebrated a few days of soaking rain with a very successful Country Fair earlier this month.
Plenty of stalls offered a range of activities, while the food stalls included real coffee, pulled pork burgers, sausage sizzle, popcorn and an amazing cake stall that sold out very quickly.
One of the busiest stalls was the school’s very own produce stall. Parents, carers and grandparents donated all kinds of fresh produce and plants, as well as handmade goodies.
The kids had lots of fun with the games including Ring Toss, Knock the Blocks and Bat the Rat. The NRL footy throwing competition proved very popular, as well as a ninja course competition. The students loved throwing wet sponges at their teachers, especially when they were successful in hitting their target.
The Country Fair raffle had ten outstanding prizes, all of which were drawn on the day.
Sam Hunt and Armani Reidy won the best dressed cowboy and cowgirl competition receiving winning ribbons and a gift voucher each.
The Middleton community would like to thank everyone for their generous support, especially the generous donations from local and out of town businesses.
It was wonderful to see the so many families having fun.
