Shepparton East Primary School is putting on a good-old fashioned school fete complete with farm animals, face-painting and an Easter egg hunt.

Education support officer Christy Gray said people of all ages could find something fun to do at the event.

‘‘It’s going to be an old-fashioned country school fete, we’re bringing it back to basics,’’ Mrs Gray said.

‘‘We’re aiming for it to be a fete that all types of families can enjoy and we want everyone to feel included.’’

Mrs Gray said among the attractions would be an Easter egg hunt starting at 11am and an Easter bonnet parade at 1pm.

‘‘The kids love making their Easter bonnets and they love to strut their stuff,’’ she said.

‘‘We’ll also have jumping castles, games, craft activities and kids selling raffle tickets.’’

Mrs Gray said the fete was open to the public and encouraged parents of kindergarten age children to attend.

‘‘It’s a great opportunity to see the school and check out the vibe,’’ she said.

She thanked the school’s parents and friends for their hard work in organising the fete.

Shepparton East Primary School’s fete is from 11am to 2pm on Sunday at 15 School Rd, Shepparton East.
