SUBIACO Primary School will hold its first Spring Fair next month to encourage people into Subiaco.
The event will have bouncy castles and baby animals, but will also be educational, with a SciTech exhibit and an author corner.
Subiaco Primary School P&C president Jodi Mansfield said the event would be about bringing people together and encouraging learning in a fun environment.
“We’ve tried to create an event that aims to engage and educate kids and their families in a fun environment,” she said.
“We wanted to create experiences that align with the school‘s focus on literacy, technology, as well as sustainability.”
SciTech will present their science wonderland at the event, where children and parents can explore the world of STEM together, through engaging storytelling, experiments and hands-on games.
The author corner will include renowned authors and illustrators James Foley, Frane Lessac, Kylie Howarth and Kelly Canby, with entertaining readings and live drawing sessions.
Ms Mansfield said plant conservation would also be highlighted, with senior biology lecturers from UWA speaking on local flora and fauna.
She said she hoped the fair would also help bring people to Subiaco and end the suburb’s “rough patch”.
“We want kids to feel proud to share their school with the wider community,” she said.
“The response from local business has been overwhelming and through their generosity and support we’ve been able to offer an event that I think engages all members of the community.”
The Subiaco Spring Fair will run from noon to 5pm on November 6 at Subiaco Primary School.
