The Davisville Fun Fair is always a highlight for families at our school. The Fair includes a variety of carnival games, bouncy castles and other inflatables, a silent auction, a BBQ, delicious treats, face-painting, henna, hair-decorating and much more. Come out and show your support for our school while having a great time with your family and friends!

Here are just some of the highlights:

  • Cupcake decorating – Decorate a delicious cupcake to enjoy at the fair!
  • Animal show – two shows will run, one at 11:30 and again at 12:30 ($6 at the door).
  • Balloon burst water game – you might want to send your kids to the fair in a bathing suit or with a change of clothes, because with the perfect weather we will have tomorrow, the kids will want to get soaked!
  • New this year upcycled bags arts&crafts centre –  Volunteer artists (Jiyoon, Geetha, Jyothi, among others) have made beautiful up-cycled shopping bags from T-shirts, and added patches and embroidery.  Your kids add their imagination and some paint and take home a lovely bag (prices $6-$10/bag.)
  • Photo booth – come have a silly family photo taken, or have your photo taken with some special surprise celebrities…
  • Silent Auction and Penny Raffle – Dinner at a local restaurant?  A summer camp for the kids?  A chance to have lunch with your favourite teacher?  All of this and more can be had at our annual silent auction!  There will also be a penny raffle where you can enter to win some amazing prizes!  Bring your toonies and chequebooks and go home with some excellent swag!
  • Also for the adults – The notary is in! Douglas is setting up shop again to notarize your travel documents or maybe you want a notarized document that affirms how awesome Dad is – a great Father’s Day gift!

Please note: If you pre-ordered tickets, they will be available tomorrow morning at the ticket pickup table starting at 10:00am.  Tickets will be in an envelope marked under the child’s name, sorted by teacher.
