Yesterday my family and I decided to go to the local school fete (not our own school). I remember growing up my state school had a full blown carnival with rides, lots of stalls (each one run by a different class), the classics like lob a choc, vote for best dressed teddy, lucky dips, show bags, basketball shoot, school performances and so on. Everyone helped and it was a wonderful jam packed day of fun and excitement for the children because everyone put so much time and effort in..
Sadly, cannot say the same about the fete we attended this year (and the others we have been to). It has changed to a very small 2 or 3 stalls and the band playing…I guess it comes down to parental involvement but I am disappointed they are nowhere near as fun and exciting and wish my children could have enjoyed it and experienced it as I did growing up
