Red Hill Fair
Join us, Saturday 28th July 2018, for the 36th Red Hill Fair. The Fair is an iconic community event for Red Hill, Paddington, Ashgrove and surrounds, attracting over 8,000 people each year.
Prepare yourself for a fun filled day full of rides, great entertainment, petting zoo, trash & treasure, raffles, awesome Merlo coffee, burgers, a bar and heaps of great stalls.
Plus this year there will be close to 1000 gourmet treats, cakes, slices, chutneys and jams lovingly baked by the mums, dads, grandparents and caring community of the kids at Red Hill Kindy.
Come and visit us between 9am and 3pm at Woolcock Park, Red Hill.
Each year the Red Hill Kindergarten host the Red Hill Fair at Woolcock Park – the only fundraising event performed by the kindergarten. It is one of the area’s biggest community events and a yearly ritual for many local families.
Why we’re doing this?
Firstly, it provides income. We receive some Government funding, and this plus money from fees is used to pay for all general expenses, like the balance of salaries for teachers and everyday operating costs (electricity, rent, phone etc). The warm and fuzzies, like building and playground maintenance and upgrades, and new equipment and books needs to be supplemented. We all want our children to have great experiences and great facilities, but the reality is this often costs, which is why the Fair and the money raised is so important.
Secondly, the Fair provides a link with our community and shows our children we are connected to the local area. Hosting a fabulous day out helps promote Red Hill Kindy to our neighbourhood.
How Will The Money Be Used?
Funds from 2018 Red Hill Fair to be used to establish a BUSH KINDY at Red Hill Kindy.
The development of a quality educational Bush Kindergarten program at Red Hill Kindergarten would include the exploration of natural environments which contributes to improving young children’s learning, health and well-being.
Through working with parents and community members to develop a partial kindergarten program off site as a ‘regular outing’ to a nearby bush setting, Mt Coo-tha, to extend our nature program and provide a bush setting for the child lead investigations (games).
We believe the benefits of adding Bush Kindy into Red Hill Kindergarten’s already fabulous program is worth the hard work and long list of paperwork. We look forward to discussing the exciting prospects with you.
Funds from the Fair would help establish the resources for needed for bus transportation to and from Bush Kindy, additional first aid kits, printing of excursion permissions and additional staffing costs.
The Staff would like to take this opportunity to thank the Red Hill Fair Committee for their time and efforts and to all the Red Hill Parents for assisting us in making our work with your children so incredibly amazing and ground breaking.
