Conditions could hardly have been better for Great Southern Grammar’s biennial Kingfisher Fair on Sunday with crowds of about 1500 flocking to the school. This year the school’s Parents and Friends Association, which organises the event, was eager to involve the Kalgan and King River communities more heavily in the fair. It resulted in the Kalgan Volunteer Bushfire Brigade bringing along a truck with plenty of kids keen to test out its big hoses. The event is one of the school’s biggest fundraisers and part of the proceeds will be donated to the KVBB. There were plenty of market stalls to visit, games to play, music to entertain the crowd and competitions to try your luck at. P and F president Jim Darmody said the event was a great opportunity to bring the school community together “to put on a wonderful traditional community event”. “It was lovely to see students, staff, extended family and the wider community enjoying all the fun of the fair,” he said.
