EACH student that attends Belgrave South Primary has contributed to five different paintings that will be auctioned off at the upcoming school fete.
Belgrave South Primary School Grade 1 and 2 teacher Meredith Pocklington said the idea of the artwork was created by a parent at the school.
“The idea was to do some work of art that all the children could participate that could be made into artworks that could be auctioned off,” she said.
“It’s a nice memento that parents of that level can take home if they choose to bid.
“The money is going towards new equipment for the children and other resources that is needed.”
Amusement rides, live music, arts, craft and the auction will all be part of the fete on Saturday 29 March, celebrating all things Belgrave South Primary School.
Headlining at this year’s fete is the Mama Patch Funk and Soul band that is made up of seasoned musicians who love to groove.
Belgrave South Primary School Staxafun Fete is running from noon to 6pm on Saturday 29 March located at the corner of Gilmore Drive and Belgrave-Hallam Road, Belgrave.
