To celebrate its 125th birthday, Annandale Public School (APS) will be rolling out the bunting and bottling up the jams for its biggest and best fete yet. APS will be celebrating in true carnival style with a full day of old-fashioned fun with rides, food and stalls galore.
As part of the 125th celebrations a wonderful collection of APS’s history has been unearthed from as far back as the early 20th century. Why not take a trip down memory lane with the great selection of school memorabilia which will be on display. You might even catch some ladies from yesteryear wandering the school grounds.
The school community has also been busy putting their creative talents to work growing, making and baking up a storm. Beautiful handmade craft and art, school grown organic produce and as well the APS award winning cake stall (as judged by 702 ABC Sydney) will be just some of the great wares and old fashioned fare available on the day.
