What a wonderful Fair by the Sea we had on Sunday 16 October 2022.
The community was treated to sausage sandwiches, a country kitchen, raffles, the chocolate wheel, games, art displays, silent auctions, homewares and crafts, amusements, face painting, hair braiding, the list goes on. There were so many willing helpers and people getting involved which really highlighted the community spirit of Our Lady Star of the Sea.
Special mention must go to Matt McCudden, who has coordinated all of the preparation leading up to the day and on the day itself. With his willing band of helpers, including his entire family who had been on site at the school since Friday afternoon, Matt ensured the day ran without a hitch. Well done Matt and well done to everyone who contributed to the success of the day!!
Each October, the school becomes the setting for the Fair by the Sea, a hugely popular event that brings families from all the Central Coast.
The Fair is a perfect example of the community coming together. Parents work tirelessly for many months in advance to prepare for it, and the days immediately before the weekend are a
flurry of volunteer activity. Local businesses make it all possible through generous sponsorships.
The local community show their support by turning up in ever-increasing numbers for a fabulous day that embodies many of the joys of family life on the Central Coast.
The Fair by the Sea has become so well-attended that it has its own website.
