Sweet Tooths Are Counting on You

If you want to get a taste for the Graceville State School Fete, nothing beats the rocky roads, coconut ices, toffees, chocolate fudges and other delicious sweet treats.

These popular confectioneries will be in demand on Saturday, August 26, at the Sweets Stall, so we need our school families to play their part. To ensure we have sufficient supplies on fete day, we are asking parents (and children) to dig out their favourite sweets recipes and start cooking.
Of course, we want to make it easier for you, so the classes managing the Sweets Stall can put together take-home packs of ingredients, plus the bags in which you can wrap your finished goodies. Just email the Stall Convenor at gracevillefetestalls@gmail.com and you can arrange to pick up packs.
When your cooking is done, just bring the sweets to the school.

Coming up – Free Dress Days!

Anyone who has worked on the Lob-o-Choc stall at the fete will tell you that our children are obsessed with it. Who can blame them – after all, the prize is chocolate!

To build up our supplies of chocolate for the day, two free-dress days will be held.

July Free Dress Day
The first free dress day is on Friday, July 21, when children are asked to bring a gold coin donation that will be used to buy chocolate.

August Free Dress Day
The second free dress day will be on Friday, August 18, when students can bring actual chocolate bars to school as donations. In return, students get to have uniform-free days on those dates.
