Making our fete inclusive for everyone 

This year, we have a range of initiatives to help our whole community enjoy the ‘best day ever’!.

– Low noise hour (10-11am) – all stalls will be open (with no amplified music; other than a little bit of keyboard during a school music ensemble)

– The Paddock chill out space (in collaboration with Bargoonga Nganjin North Fitzroy Library; all day) – drop by to recharge on a bean bag or air lounge, enjoy the shade, free WIFI or read a book. Visit the painted cow on the Lee St side of school for a bit of respite and calm on fete day.

A social story to prepare everyone for what to expect on fete day. We also have a sensory map to help families work out the best route to explore what’s on offer at the fete. Here is the social story for the community and here is the social story for CNPS families.

It has been exciting to work together to make our fete as inclusive as it can be.

We can’t wait!

It is the best day of the year!
