The St Sebastian's community proudly hosts fundraising events each year for the enjoyment of our school and local community. Money raised from these events helps support the education of our students and enrich their school experience.
ST SEBASTIAN'S 2023 FETE
The St Sebastian's Under the Sea themed fete will be held on Saturday 21 October from 11am to 4pm. Our biennial fetes have proven to be fun-filled days for the community with rides, games, craft activities, food, drinks and entertainment.
We hope our theme will help educate our children on how we can make a change and save our seas. As part of this, we'll be working with the children to repurpose single-use plastics into sea-themed creative pieces to showcase. We view sustainability as being key to our children's futures and understand that it is important to many local residents and businesses alike.
Your contribution will help the school to put on a great community event and to raise vital funds for our school. Funds from this year's event will be put towards improvements to the school's greenspace and play area known as the “Pres" (where the Presbytery once stood), ranging from seating, upgraded fencing, more foliage and trees, play equipment for the older grades, greater shade and possibly even electricity!
We genuinely appreciate any contribution, from parents volunteering through to businesses or families offering financial sponsorship or in-kind donations. For further information on sponsorship opportunities, please refer to our sponsorship proposal.
