Last term, under sunny skies with a touch of the fresh country air, the grounds of Southern Highlands Christian School were transformed into the Annual Country Fair.
Staff, students and members of the community worked tirelessly to bring to Bowral a day filled with fun, teamwork and a sense of the school community. There was live music from the Secondary School musicians, who entertained patrons as they browsed the gift and food stalls. Cute baby animals were available for cuddles and there were also thrilling rides for the little ones. Children’s entertainer, Colin Buchanan, closed the afternoon with a concert for all members of the school and wider community. Singing songs about Jesus, Colin had the incredible gift of entertaining children and adults alike, while sharing a vital message of how much Jesus loves each one of us. A fantastic time was had by all! The Southern Highlands Christian School Country Fair had something for everyone.
As with all great events like this one, there are many people to thank for their contributions.
