LIWARA Catholic Primary School’s community fair is turning 40.

Since 1979, the Greenwood school has been hosting the event every November to bring the wider community together while also raising funds for the P&F Association.

It includes market stalls, a food court including a pizza conveyor belt built by a parent, lucky dips and raffles.

To mark the 40th anniversary, this year’s fair on November 8 will also include and opening ceremony and an invitational VIP drink event for past organisers.

“The fair has always been a highlight of the school community calendar and an experience the children at Liwara look forward to every year,” Tamara Bastow, of the P&F Association, said.

“It has evolved over time but has used the same successful format put in place in the 1970s.”

Ms Bastow said the fair had previously raised funds for two nature playground areas, refrigerated water fountains, air-conditioning upgrades and literacy resources.

The event will run from 5pm to 9pm.
