On the 21st of October, Toowong State School will be holding the Hands & Hearts Fair from 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. at the school grounds.

One of the oldest public schools in Queensland, Toowong State School has been hosting the Hands and Hearts Fair since 2013. The event has attracted thousands of people. The fund it has generated has helped the development of significant school infrastructure projects. It also helped strengthen special programs such as the Bilingual Bicultural education that the school offers. Known for their diversity, the school is the only primary program in Queensland that has a bilingual/bicultural co-enrolment program.

The event promises amazing rides for kids and adults such as the Giant Slide, The Sizzle and the Big Splash. There is also going to be a side-show alley.

Adults can chill by the Beach Bar whilst those who wants to chill with some good tea and scones can go to Nanna’s Nook.

An event will not be complete without novelty events such as face painting and of course, a raffle and a silent auction as well.

Another highlight that sets this fair apart from the other school fetes is that since the school is known for their diversity, there are going to be deaf theatre performances and an international costume parade. Toowong State School has played host to 40 different cultures, plus they have a deaf student cohort
