Mackay and Whitsunday Life

St Mary’s Family Fun Day

More than one thousand people attended the bi-annual St Mary’s Catholic School Family Fun Day in Bowen last month, and with over 400 ride passes sold, it was clear that the children had a lot of fun!

One of the organisers, Angela Gonzalez, said they were thrilled with the event’s success.

“We were all very stoked with the turn out!” she said.

“Thank you to all the sponsors and all our volunteers who made the event happen.”

There was plenty to do on the day, including fairground rides, face painting, playdoh fun, Whitsunday Wildlife experiences and sand art.

Angela said they are still counting all the money raised, but are anticipating it may reach $10K, all of which will be put back into the school’s P&C.
