The countdown to the JMC Fete 2023 is on….only 2 weeks to go!

Thursday 24th August 2023

Join us for the John McGlashan College Fete on Saturday 9th September 2023 from 11am-2pm.

There will be something for everyone with almost 50 stalls selling a wide variety of goods, including fabulous food selections, lots of second hand treasures, some fun and games, plus our infamous chocolate wheel. The school campus will be humming with activity and the welcome mat will be out for the whole community. So come along and be part of the action.

On the day of the fete, Pilkington Street will be closed between Balmacewen Road to Passmore Crescent on Saturday 9 September 7.30 am until 5 p.m. Parking will be available near the Boarding House with access off Passmore Cres.

Here is the checklist of ways you can help between now and the fete:

· Baking/Home Made Sweets/Conserves & Preserves - drop off at the School Chapel from 2 pm on Friday 8th September or on the day of the fete before 9.30 am.
