Rockabye Clothing and Parties are hosting a Faerie Palace with face painting and hair sparkles, Bricks 4 Kidz are hosting a Lego adventure room, the Highett Youth Club are hosting some gymnastics activities as well as performing at the event, and all these groups have also offered party packs as prizes for raffles to be drawn at the event. These groups will be collecting a gold coin donation for their activities with all funds being donated to our school. Awesome!

We've had generous support for raffle prizes from local businesses who are keen to support our school - Sandy Beach HQ, UpUnlimited, Lollipops Playland, Skateworld Mordialloc and more to be announced.
