GREENWOOD College is hosting musical and dance performances, science demonstrations, flight simulations, games and rides as part of its 40th anniversary carnival this week.

Celebrations start at 1.30pm on Friday with an opening ceremony featuring performances by dance and music students, followed by an array of activities around the school grounds, including volleyball games, silent art auction, dunking tank, kung fu demonstrations and a second hand book sale.

Guests will be well fed with several food trucks, a sausage sizzle, cake stall and coffee van in attendance.

Meredith Arns, one of eight teachers who have been planning the event since the start of the year, said she hoped it attracted many past and present students and staff.

“We’re all hoping to show people a happy, lively atmosphere and show off the school and students,” she said.

Deputy principal Terry Dunn said it was an exciting opportunity for students and alumni to mark the milestone.

“We have been working hard to put together an event that all of our students, past and present, can be involved in and I’m sure they won’t be disappointed,” he said.

The carnival is open to the public. Entry is free.
