The Nicholson Street Public School Halloween Festival takes place every year on the last weekend of October in the grounds of historic Nicholson Street school in Balmain East. We will be celebrating on Saturday 28th October from 2 – 7.30pm and the parent community of the school are promising to make it even spookier and more fun than ever.
The Halloween Festival is the only known Halloween themed fundraiser is the Inner West and is particularly aimed at 5 – 12 year olds and with over 20 years experience it gets better each year. It is a unique and fun day for children and parents alike and captures the true spirit of this small community school.
Many local businesses have pledged their support over the years including our presenting sponsor Cobden & Hayson, without whose support would be difficult to deliver such an amazing event. Although local business forms an integral part of the Festival, organisers are keen to point out that the festivities are not commercial. There’s a lot of home-made ingenuity, we have very creative and resourceful parents who are committed to making this event a wonderful showcase for the school and its school motto ‘Learning, Laughter, Life.’
A range of side-shows have been carefully planned to keep a family well entertained and from the moment you purchase your Halloween Tickets at the front gate the children (and their parents) will be entertained for quite some time. It’s entertaining just walking around looking at all the hideously gruesome costumes the parents, students and local community members are dressed in.
