A HURST school held its bi-annual Summer Fair last week (June 15), this year with a carnival theme.

Dolphin School's fair, organised by school PTA FunRaisers, saw parents, children, family and friends treated to some lively music, including Year 8 on the drums, a saxophone quartet and the staff choir.

The children paraded their hand-made carnival masks which they had created in their art lessons, and winners were awarded their prizes.

Parents ran an assortment of wonderful stalls including the wheel of fortune, Pinatas, coconut shy, penalty shoot out and Tombola.

The school's gardening club also sold their produce that the children had planted in their lessons.

Also available to visitors was a delicious BBQ, home made cakes and ice-creams.

Despite the rain, the carnival was a huge success and the children enjoyed bouncy castles, total wipeout, tractor rides and the highlight of the day was to douse their new headmaster, Adam Hurst, with a bucketful of rotten food in the Gunge Tank at the end of the day.

Adam said: "The carnival captured the true spirit of Dolphin School, with a wonderful assortment of stalls and activities and a lively atmosphere for all to enjoy.

"There was a little too much pleasure in me being the gunge tank victim, but I have decided not to take it personally."
