For those new and old to Craigburn, Gala Day is an annual event where students showcase their enterprise skills by creating and running a food, craft or activity stall.
Being a student-led event, students develop important life skills such as creativity, collaboration, communication and critical thinking.
Only Year 3 – 7 students can run a Gala Day stall. Students who have shown interest in running a stall, get to apply for running a stall using the staff holders nomination form, which must be completed and returned to school by next Wednesday 4th November. The Gala Day student leaders working group will then examine and approve the nominations.
On Gala Day, students are encouraged to bring along loose change (coins) to spend at the stalls. It is up to parents to determine how much money students bring to school. As a guide, up to $5 for younger students and up to $10 for older students seems to work well.
Session times on Gala Day are as follows:
- Early Years – Reception to Year 2 – 11.15am to 12.00pm
- Primary Years – Years 3 to 7 – 12.o5pm to 12.50pm
We look forward to a fun day of student-led enterprise.
