HUNDREDS of students and families flocked through the gates of Hampton Park Primary School for the school’s annual technology and enterprise day event on October 21.

The Morley-based school celebrated the event’s 10-year anniversary, which featured 15 stalls formed by each classroom, games and music performances.

Students created and sold handmade crafts made from recycled materials.

Principal Glenn Purdy said half of the money earned would go towards a charity.

“Fair Game is a local charity that supports children in low socioeconomic environments with sporting, food and the like,” he said.

“It is very good for the school and a great example of the school and the community working together.”

Mr Purdy said it was an event for multi-generations.

“It is an opportunity for the parents and grandparents to come and see what the kids are up to,” he said.

He said the school planned to incorporate digital technology components to the stalls in the future.

Deputy principal Jan de Jonk said the success of the event was a result of good teamwork between students and staff.
