BAMBARA Primary School in Padbury will hold its 40th anniversary fete on Sunday, November 4.

The celebration from 10am to 2pm will include a dinosaur box show, cuddly animal farm, bouncy castle, carnival games, zorb balls, dunk tanks and free crafts.

There will also be school band and choir performances, market stalls and food trucks at the Gosse Road school.

The school will host a 40th anniversary assembly on Thursday, with memorabilia from the past four decades on display and plans to open its Y2K time capsule at a morning tea.

Fremantle artist Mel McVee recently painted murals at the school featuring a black swan, great egret, motorbike frog, shelducks, wattle, donkey orchids, fringed lilies and hakeas.

Bambara is an Aboriginal word meaning forest country and the school logo features trees by water.
