2022 Class Stall Allocations

We have now finalised stall allocations for 2022. Thank you to those that have already assigned themselves to a Stall – your enthusiasm and knowledge is most appreciated. We are still looking for Stall Holders, so if you are able to help please contact Natalie Mardell at

Leading a Fair Stall is a great chance to get to know your own classroom’s families and those in the wider School Community. The stallholder will be required to coordinate rosters and may have some additional tasks to undertake. All stalls come with comprehensive handover notes.
