PROVING it’s never too early to get into the festive spirit, Parkview Public School’s annual Christmas carnival this year will aim to spread a little cheer.
Locked in for November 16, the event will be one of the first Christmas events of the season in Leeton and there’s plenty for the whole family to eat, see and do.
The carnival is open to the wider community and is a fundraiser for the school’s P&C.
This year the P&C has several projects in its minds for the money raised to go towards, including more shade sails and bubblers at the school, as well as the new STEMShare community program.
The initiative helps student build on their coding and technology skills, with the Christmas carnival to again provide a boost for these projects.
Parkview Public School principal Travis Irvin said the event had continued to grow over the years.
“We’ve been doing it for a while now,” he said.
“It’s something the students, staff, parents and the community all look forward to.”
On offer this year will be a variety of entertainment, including a merry-go-round, the Lions train, music, laser tag and more.
A variety of tasty food options will also be up-for-grabs, including a barbecue dinner.
Another draw card will be the annual ham and toy raffles.
“It’s a way for the whole community to join together and have a bit of fun, but it’s also a bit of an end-of-year celebration,” Mr Irvin said.
Residents can pre-purchase tickets for the event, which will be held at the school grounds on November 16 from 5pm to 7.30pm.
