Ruby Davies and Kara Leocata show off their rainbow shoelaces ahead of Orrvale Primary School's mini-fair that will commemorate the 10th anniversary of Zaidee Turner's death.
Orrvale Primary School’s annual mini-fair will have a rainbow tinge this year.
The Parents and Friends Committee decided to host the rainbow-themed fair to commemorate the 10th anniversary of former school student Zaidee Turner’s death.
Committee member Amanda Carrafa said the school would donate 10 per cent of the market’s profits to Zaidee’s Rainbow Foundation.
‘‘I had the idea to hold a bigger fair knowing the 10-year anniversary of Zaidee’s death was coming along,’’ Ms Carrafa said.
‘‘Zaidee’s Foundation is really important with the work it does to promote organ and tissue donation, so the school thought let’s do something really special and hold a rainbow fete.’’
She said the fair would be significantly bigger than last year’s event with 35 stalls offering face painting, a photobooth, assorted games and food stalls.
She said there would also be a petting zoo, football and handball competitions and a jumping castle. A Zaidee’s Rainbow Foundation van will be set up to provide information on the foundation’s work.
