Saturday 13 May 2017 10 am to 4 pm

The PLC Sydney Open Day and Fair is now only weeks away and plans are in full swing for another great event.

The day is an opportunity for us to showcase the school and also raise funds for the P & F which are utilised to benefit the students.  

The Fair presents a unique opportunity to get involved and meet other people in our community who are sharing in the fun and relaxed atmosphere. It’s completely run by volunteers and success is dependent upon the generosity of those connected to the school.

 If you would like to support this wonderful event, here are some of the ways you can help:

1. VOLUNTEER 

We desperately need all the help we can get.* Register online as a volunteer to give an hour or two to an existing stall on the day, contribute to the High Tea or offer help the week before or after the fair. 

*Due to space restrictions Hamilton will not be holding a mini fair. If you are a  Hamilton parent we still need your help in all other areas: Pre-paid Ride Bands, Evandale Stalls, Food Stalls, Silent Auction, Drummond Field. 

WORKING BEES

We will be holding the following working bees to assist with gift basket assembly, wrapping, faux flower making etc.
