Face-painting, friends and good food was on offer at the Rodney Neighbourhood Kindergarten earlier this month, as the venue celebrated its 30th anniversary with a Christmas fair.

Teacher Pam Gaylard said a group of parents whose children were now teenagers started the fair about 13 years ago and it continued to draw a large crowd each year.

‘‘It’s absolutely beautiful,’’ Ms Gaylard said of the fair.

She said some of the kids even created their own stall for the fair — one that sold popcorn and apple slinkys.

‘‘It’s not only a fundraiser — it’s a celebration of life and families, that we like to share with the wider community.’’

Ms Gaylard said the kinder hosted numerous events throughout the year — with a lantern walk in winter and seasonal celebrations.

The fair wrapped up with a Christmas carol singing session.

‘‘It’s a lovely way to herald in the real meaning of Christmas,’’ Ms Gaylard said.

Kinder committee president Lisa Wagner said the fair featured handmade crafts, candle-making sessions and a barbecue.

‘‘It’s a family day. It’s all based around the children.’’
