FETED! presented by Merri Makers

  • Merri Creek Primary School 175 Miller Street Fitzroy North, VIC, 3068 Australia (map)

FETED! will be an open afternoon of crafting, making, chatting and especially celebrating the extraordinary 'ordinary' people who spend their every spare moment, hours, evenings, nights for weeks on end creating for our school fetes and festivals. It's a chance for us all to gather together and meet each other and make friends across the suburban divide, to share stories and experiences, sources and resources, to network and celebrate in a collegiate and supportive atmosphere. Fund-raising is a fact of school life - budgets are tight and a certain amount of money must be raised each year to meet program requirements and shortfall in funding. It often feels like we are competing for a limited cash pool and fetes can become competitive. What we do for our children is selfless, generous, heartfelt and beautiful - let's acknowledge our shared experience, step back and look at the amazing work we all produce, celebrate creativity and create a community. We're inviting all inner northern Melbourne primary school fete and festival makers including: Merri Creek Primary School Brunswick East Primary School Westgarth Primary School Northcote Primary School Fairfield Primary SchoolBut all school fete makers are welcome!
