All the fun and excitement of a traditional fair is on offer at this year’s Shepherd’s Fair at Good Shepherd Lutheran College on Saturday 10 August.
The Shepherd’s Fair is a much anticipated event on the College’s calendar and i s an occasion where the College and the local community come together.
Good Shepherd has been holding the Shepherd’s Fair every year for almost 30 years, and over this time has gained a significant profile amongst local residents, businesses and the wider community.
With a combination of rides, games, stalls, raffles, Silent Auction and the fireworks finale – this year’s Fair will be sure to attract many visitors once again.
“There will be something for everyone at this year’s Fair – no matter the age – it’s a great day out for the whole family” said Mrs Karen von Homeyer, Co-ordinator of the Shepherd’s Fair.
“However, an event like this just would not be possible if it wasn’t for a very dedicated group of volunteers from the College parents and staff.
“Apart from the wonderful sense of community an event like this creates, it is also an invaluable fundraising exercise for the College, with all the funds raised going directly to providing additional facilities and resources for our students,” said Mrs von Homeyer.
The Shepherd’s Fair also relies heavily on the support of local businesses who donate goods and services to support the Fair including donations for the Silent Auction and the raffle.
According to Mrs von Homeyer, this year the College has been overwhelmed by sponsorship support and she believes this really demonstrates the commitment of the local business community to support the younger generation.
The Shepherd’s Fair is open from 12 noon to 6pm and entry is free and unlimited ride passes are available on the day for $40 or individual rides for $5 (rides commence at 12 noon).
