GALLERY: Springfest shines despite rain

WET weather was no barrier to fun at Unity College yesterday for its fete Springfest.

The school's P&F worked for 18 months to ensure the event, held every two years, ran smoothly.

Fete co-ordinator Colleen Read said the event was a success, despite the weather.

"People have all raved about it, they loved it," Ms Read said.

"Everyone just pitched in together to make it happen."

Ms Read thanked sponsors for their generosity.

Assistant principal Mark Ballam said performances by students showcased the college arts program.

Ms Read said in addition to rides and stalls, there were also teachers on the dunking machine.

"The kids got excited with particular teachers, they didn't miss the target," she said.

Mr Ballam said the event shifted to the car park following wet-weather forecasts but the fete went ahead successfully.

"There was a great sense of community around the day," he said.
