10am – 4pm Welcome back!

After having a year off due to school ground works (our oval is now the best!) it’s time to organise another Grand Fair. Not just any Fair, as we will celebrate 90 years of Ashburton Primary School!

We are doing things a bit differently this year, with rides on Carool Rd, which will be closed to traffic. A variety of food vans and options on the Oval, an outdoor stage, lots of kids activities in the Rotunda area and on all the outdoor basketball courts. We are looking forward to the Heritage-inspired team room and School history display. And of course there will still be the favourites – a huge 2nd hand stall in the gym, fabulous Silent Auction – which is going online, the Art exhibition, LEGO display and so much more.

“BRUCE” is back! Our blue emu, who will promote all aspects of the fair, especially to the students. He is up to something exciting that will happen on the OVAL at 2pm on Fair day.

We have over 50 families who are involved in the coordination of the Fair and with their support the Fair is a wonderful day for the whole community.


Silent Auction is online and now open for bidding

The Grand Fair Online Silent Auction is live from Friday 9th March 2018 at 11am at:

You can bid from now until 2pm on Fair Day. But don’t delay because you won’t want to miss out on the 200+ amazing items on offer.



Thursday March 15th: 3:30pm – 6pm
Friday March 16th: 9am – 3pm

We need clean & good condition items only!
