HILLCREST Primary School held their annual fun fest on Saturday 7 May. Despite the early morning downpour, it turned out to be a beautiful wintery day.

From rides and inflatables to white elephant, tombola and paint ball, the stalls were busy throughout the day. This year, the drama pupils from Hillcrest High demonstrated their talents in the Horror House. Visitors to this terrifying tour were taken on a creepy caper, and despite their trembling, kept coming back for more.

The crowds were entertained with judo, dance and drum majorette displays as well as their very own marimba band who filled the air with the beat of the drums.

Some new attractions saw people trying their skills on the “Wipe Out” balls. The “Party-in-a-Box” enthralled the younger visitors with its trampolines, soft play, maze and climbing apparatus all packed in a contained frame.

Food vendors provided a variety of eats to keep tummies full and there were hot drinks from the tea garden to wash it down.

Various market stalls allowed parents to browse while their children were entertained.

The winners of our school raffle walked away an electric scooter, a weekend away for a family of four and a trolley full of groceries

A very busy day was had by all, making this fund-raiser a resounding success.
