For the first time in more than a decade, the pupils of the St Helens District School are getting ready to host a fair.
Administration clerk Amanda Lovell said the idea behind this year's fair was to make it a celebration of the school and its relationship with the community.
"For us it is about more than just fundraising or making money, it's about bringing everyone together and showcasing all the talents and the wonderful things our students do," she said.
"Many of them [the pupils] have never experienced one before as it's been 14 years since there was one at St Helens."

Involvement in the fair runs right across the school, with the year 9 and 10 business enterprise pupils designing the logo and poster for the event. All primary pupils are involved with stalls and creating items, volunteering on the day, and performing and showcasing their work.
Stalls will include bikkie in a bottle, trash and treasure, pre-loved books, a chomp and chew bake stale, and indigenous stall alongside stalls run by Fishcare, local emergency services, and a wellness centre with massage and yoga.
In terms of entertainment, there will be a make, create, and experiment hum in the gym with science experiments, a juggling workshop, and a paper plane competition.
The stage area will come to life with a taster from the school's production, the primary school choir, and the upcycled fashion parade.
Ms Lovell said the parade would be a highlight, alongside the crowning of the Winter King and Queen and Snow Teen and Child.
The fair coincides with the Bay of Fires Winter Arts Festival, and Ms Lovell said the school was hoping to give the region's visitors another great place to visit.
"Hopefully hundreds if not thousands of people will come through our gates," Ms Lovell said.
Cash and Eftpos facilities will be available.
