What is Funtastic Fete?

Our last Funtastic Fete was held on Saturday, 14 September, 2019, our College opened the gates to the community for the biennial Funtastic Fete full of fun activities, performances and activities for the whole family. Unfortunately due to COVID we have been unable to hold one over the past few years but welcome back this amazing community event in 2023. For a small sneak peak from our 2019 event watch the video below.

Of course thank you to our sponsors for their support for our 2023 event.

Ride Passes

One of the most exciting elements of the Fete is always the rides! This Fete promises to deliver some fantastic rides and attractions. For the big kids we have Dodgem cars, Round Up and the Ranger. For the little ones we have the bouncing castle, cup and saucer and the Mini Tug Ride. There will also be the rock climbing wall, Wipeout, Soccer shoot out and the triple screamer giant slide. All of these rides are included in the unlimited ride passes. Rides begin from 2pm.

We will be selling unlimited ride band passes for the day and you will be able to purchase these at a discounted rate prior to the fete.
We will be posting a full list of rides with the appropriate age/ height/ weight restrictions on the booking link.Unlimited Ride Passes Advance Purchase – Ride pass prices are the same for adults and children. Adults do not need to purchase a ticket unless they wish to ride the major rides. An adult can accompany their young child on a minor ride without a ticket such as the Triple Screamer Slide.

Prices for advance tickets are as follows:

  • $40.00 per ticket
  • $35.00 per ticket for 3 or more children in the family at Hillcrest
  • Unlimited arm band on the day is $48.00

Advance Tickets are now on sale through Eventbrite. We will also be selling ride passes for cash at school for those who prefer not to purchase online.

Ticket sales close for advance purchase on Friday 17 November. After this time, tickets will be available on the day in either single ride tickets or unlimited arm band. Unlimited arm band on the day is $48.00

Extra activities will also be available on the day that are not included in the unlimited arm bands. Some of these include the pony rides, hungry hippo, the reptile attraction, bungy jump and inflatable bubble soccer. Tickets can purchased on the day for these.
