FOR the first time in many years Taabinga State school is hosting a fete.

The school is opening up to the public for a community fete on November 4, starting at 11am and running until 9pm.

Taabinga school students have been working hard to prepare for the day and the many different activities that will be available.

Rides will be $6 each or an unlimited ride band is $35. Bands are available for pre-order from the school for $27.

The school is still looking for donations of second-hand books and bric-a-brac for its second-hand stores.

Any donations can be dropped off at the school office.

With plenty to see and do throughout the day, deputy principal Andrew Carter wants anybody in the community to come along.

"It's been exciting and it's going to be a great day,” he said.

"We want the whole community outside of the school community to come along and enjoy a day of family fun.”

The school is putting on the fete to raise money for the P&C.

The money will be spent on getting more air-conditioning in the school.

The fete will feature market stalls, rides, food and drinks, raffles and fun and games.

Stay on into the evening and listen to live music, with a bar open as well as meals being served.

Kids can be dropped off to a supervised movie area.

Fireworks are scheduled for 8.30pm.

Entry is free for the day.

Bring plenty of cash for market stalls and different activities at the Taabinga School Oval.

Rides include laser skirmish, slides, cup and saucer, jumping castle and obstacle course, as well as plenty of sideshow alley-like games and activities.

The school is still looking for sponsors for the fete if any organisations or businesses are interested in getting involved.
