What a fabulous Family Fun Day

Posted: November 21, 2014

It was the biggest and best yet – wonderful games, activities and arts & crafts, delicious food stalls, delectable commercial & charity stalls and perfect weather all made for a fabulous Family Fun Day last Saturday. It was great to see so many DC families and visitors from the whole community there to enjoy the gorgeous afternoon.

THANK YOU to all the parents, teachers, students and support staff who volunteered – Family Fun Day would not be the huge success it is without all of your help. And thank you DC parent Jane Robbins for so ably heading the Family Fun Day organising team.

Highlights of the day included:

  • Wonderful music performances by DC’s talented students and entertaining displays by DB-based groups
  • DC parents – you outdid yourselves with the delicious selection of international food stalls and enticing cake stall donations.
  • Activities kept tiny totts to teens entertained, including bouncy castles, messy play area, trash or treasure game, HIT Room spin cycle challenge and student-run face painting, coloured hairspray, sponge the teacher, DC challenge and soccer shootout
  • Fun arts & crafts organised by Primary parents
  • A new hit this year for tweens and teens was the hilarious Bubble Soccer
  • Many attendees enjoyed the wonderful variety of commercial and charity stalls, student-run Mendoza backpack stall, second-hand book stall and mini photo shoots by Highjump Photography
