6 Days to Go! It’s time for:


  • Create slip for stalls to get notes for the stage manager to call out eg. cake stall now half price (get Sonia’s template)



  • Fete day kit:Sticky tape, pens, scissors, blue tac, hand sanitizer, tissues, paper, clip board, volunteer register, student protection info, volunteer timetable, price signs, advertising signs and. Decorations, volunteer instructions, till, float, sunscreen, emergency contact list, esky for people’s wallets, eftpos machine if being used, paperwork specific reason to the stall like list of pre sold rides or sheets for putting raffle winners details on. EDIT: don’t forget a bag of lollies like Minties or fantales or life savers. I know Jindalee also have a menu so conveners got fed and watered too. organise the order form ahead and then have someone hand out the orders at a set time. We could also consider a person to take coffee orders and deliver in take away cups at about morning tea time. String, drawing pins, chalk, s hooks, marker pens





☐ Entertainment


☐ What’s not on this list but in the email 😉
