Moon Festival

Moon Festival Fundraising Event

For what started as a small internal school celebration almost 15 years ago, the Moon Festival event has recently evolved into a huge Multicultural fundraising event involving all staff, parents, carers, families and the wider community to come together. It focuses on celebrating the cultural diversity of the school and local community and showcases the different cultural backgrounds of a large school with over 1,200 children in attendance.

The event is open to the public and we encourage past students, families and the community to join in our celebration as well as to embrace multiculturalism. This annual fundraising event runs from 4.30pm till 9.00pm usually on the second Thursday of September.

We have a huge line-up of entertainment that includes music, art and dancing, from both our students and local communities. Our delicious multicultural food stalls will satisfy everyone. There are stalls with traditional and original games and stalls that include Showbags, our infamous book stall as well as cultural trinkets!

This event is one that the whole school participates in and gets excited about. Last year, we had over 1200 students that brought their families and friends – this doesn’t count our past students and the public that walk past and wander in to join in the event. We had close to 2,000 people around the school grounds at our busiest times.

Our children participate in the Lantern Walk through the grounds with Lanterns held high, the children dress in their colourful traditional costumes and scream with delight when the Lion Dance happens.

The Moon Festival Raffle is held with prizes to be won. Raffle tickets are sold before the event and also on the Moon Festival day.

Our Main Draw is held the day after the Moon Festival and the 2nd Prize Draw will continue the following week.
