Binalong Public School raises $5000 at Spring Fair

Binaling Public School celebrated its third annual Spring Fair on Saturday, November 9.

The major fundraiser for the school, hosted by its Parents and Citizens Association, raised about $5000.

Visitors came from as far as Canberra, Harden, Wagga Wagga and Dubbo for inflatable activities, pony rides, face painting, market stalls, live music by duo Joe Duffy and John Schofield and poetry by Robyn Sykes.

Binalong Public School P&C president Angela Taylor said the group was extremely happy with how the day went.

"The kids had a great time and the adults got to catch up and have a chin-wag while doing a bit of shopping and supporting our little school," she said.

The money raised will go towards a new front garden, sandpit with cover, fence and play equipment at the school.

Ms Taylor thanked everyone who supported the fair.

"We really appreciate all the help. It does take a lot of work but we do it for the kids of today and the future," she said.
