News Update – La Grande Fête 2016


Looking for a great free family day out? Come along to Telopea Park School’s La Grande Fête from 2:30pm to 7pm on Saturday 5 November!

One of the largest school fêtes in the ACT, the event promises multicultural food, fun and entertainment stretching into the balmy twilight hours. La Grande Fête is famous for its international food stalls, carnival rides and a fantastic range of entertainment!

There’s plenty to keep the kids occupied – from dodgem cars to show bags! And for the “big kids”, the event will again feature the annual Canberra French Car Clubs display, preloved clothing and books, the monster Raffle Extraordinaire, beer and wine and a cornucopia of food.

La Grande Fête is hosted by the Telopea Park School P&C Association each year and proudly sponsored by Luton’s Natasha Johnson.

Sign up Sign up for La Grande Fete!

The Volunteer sign up sheet is now available on the Telopea P&C website. As you are all aware, the fete is the pinnacle of the school community calendar. To make this event a success, we need parents, friends, relatives and carers to help out in a small way on the day.

Please put your hand up for marquee set up or pack up, food stalls, or one of the many non-food stalls such as vintage fashion, secondhand books or Le Potager!

Its only one or two hours in the calendar year, so let’s come together and make it a stupendous fete this year. Why not sign up now?


Collection trolleys have been placed in both the main and primary school foyers.

We are looking for donations of the following items:

  • Clean glass jars full of lollies for the Tombola Stall,
  • Vintage Clothing,
  • BOOKS!
  • Wine for the French Café,
  • Backyard eggs, lemons, garden plants, jams, sauces for Le Potager

Can you cook or bake?

This year we hope to share the load, so start thinking about your speciality:

  • Cake stall – kindy, year 1 and year 7 (plates & bags to come)
  • French Café – year 2, year 3, year 6 and year 10
  • International Food – year 4, year 5, year 8, year 9.

Contact Lisa if you have any queries via email or mobile.
