Latham Primary School P&C Fete is back in a new online format!

Many of the things you’ve come to expect from Latham Fete, now in a COVID-19 safe virtual format. 

When is the Fete?

The Online Fete is scheduled for Saturday 24 October from  3-7pm.

Where is the Fete?

Due to COVID, we have decided not to run our Fete in the traditional way this year. We are going ONLINE! Join our event on the Latham PS Fete on Facebook, or subscribe for all the latest details and Fete events in your email inbox.

What is an ‘Online Fete’?

Our ‘Online Fete’ is a way for our school P&C to utilise all the hard work that went into our school fete initially planned for March (and postponed due to COVID-19). It will include a range of activities similar to what you would have seen at our ‘Live Fete’, with social distancing in mind.

Here’s a snapshot of what we have in mind: 

  1. Our wonderful school community have already supported sales of our White Elephant stall. The leftovers were shared with our school and local Buy Nothing group, before heading off to local charities.
  2. Prior to Fete, you can purchase tickets in our $1000 raffle via Rafflelink and our Mega Raffle, as well as Fete Favourites such as showbags, playdough, plants and more! Purchases can be made from 12 to 21 October.
  3. You will have access to some exclusive sales opportunities via our Online Small Business Market from 17-24 October.
  4. On Fete day itself (24 October 2020, 3-7pm), most events will be shared FREE via  our event on the Latham PS Fete on Facebook, or via this website.
    • The fete will kick off at 3pm with a Welcome to Country, then our live Lap Around Latham car show (we encourage you to find a place to watch the cars go by!) 
    • This will be followed by a range of entertainment performances and challenges in the form of FREE videos as well as our raffle draws, live updates, and winner announcements of our school’s Latham’s Got Talent Competition.
    • To finish the night, use your pre-purchased Virtual Trivia family ticket to enter our family-friendly trivia event (6.30-7pm) for your chance to win some awesome prizes!
We already have other plans that day, will we miss it?

On the day, most of the entertainment events will be via pre-recorded video, so they will be available after the day. Remember to subscribe for updates or join our event on Facebook.

We also have items for sale prior to the day. Our $1000 raffle is on sale until 24 October via Rafflelink and our Mega Raffle tickets and Fete Favourite purchases can be made from 12 to 21 October.

We don't use Facebook, can we still see Fete events?

All events (with the exception of the occasional Facebook Live video) will be shown on this website for FREE (as well as our Facebook event). Make sure you subscribe so you don’t miss any action!

Do I need a Paypal account to purchase?

While our payments are processed using Paypal, you can also use a Credit Card to pay.

Are you selling raffle tickets this year?

We have two raffles this year, our popular $1000 Raffle and our all new Mega Raffle Extravaganza. We are selling tickets online only.

The Mega Raffle Extravaganza includes 33 prizes using over 100 individual items donated by over 50 businesses…. hot air balloon flights, signed jerseys, family passes, vouchers, tickets, jam packed hampers, just to name a few… Thank you to our many sponsors!

Local pickup of prizes ONLY. $3, $5, and $10 tickets are available via out Mega Raffle page.

Will there be a cake stall or International Food stall this year?

Unfortunately due to COVID we can’t do some of the wonderful things we had planned for earlier in the year at our ‘Live Fete’. Due to the unpredictability of the year so far, our committee has decided not to sell home-made food stuffs, and also no food related events such as the cake competition.

How will the car show work?

Our car show from 2019 Fete is back for 2020 in a COVID safe format! We’re so excited about the Lap Around Latham 2020. This feature of our fete will kick off our Fete Day. 

A small group of classic and modern muscle and modified cars will depart Kippax at 3pm on the 24th of October for a 10-15 minute cruise around the main streets of Latham. 

The cars will pass Latham Primary school twice before finishing at Kippax. 

We hope that the kids (and the big kids) will be able to find a vantage point on the route and check out the cars as they cruise past at a gentle speed.

Check out the Lap around Latham page for more information about the route.

How does the Trivia work?

Our Latham Virtual Family Trivia will be held from 6.30-7pm on our online fete day. 

This will be held via the website menti.com via an exciting new visual and text-based format.

Buy your $5 family ticket here (tickets on sale from 12 to 21 October). Our Trivia organiser Tess will email all ticket purchasers log-on instructions and password in the week prior to the event.

Will we see the Latham’s Got Talent winning entries?

Due to both privacy and copyright requirements, the Latham’s Got Talent entries will only be viewed at school. Look out for the winner announcements on Fete day!

How will the proceeds from the Fete be used?

Money from our school Fete will go towards the continued development of our new school garden.
