Free Entry!

Join us for our biennial fundraising fete in the heart of Surry Hills. A family friendly fete full of fun, rides, cool summer sounds, child friendly workshops, food and entertainment; where our students, teachers and parents will showcase our wonderful school and the vibrant community in which we live.

In 2019 our fete will be celebrating our schools 170th anniversary of awesome learning, teaching and community, making Crown Street Public School one of the oldest continuous schools in Australia.  Our new cook book, ‘Crown Street Celebrates’, will be available to purchase on the day. 

We welcome everyone, and all former ‘Crownies’ to come along to our family friendly fete to mark this special occasion, explore the school grounds, take a look at our archives, reunite with old school friends and reminisce.

Cash and credit card facilities available, plus an ATM on site fete day.

Who designed our artwork?

Our fete artwork was designed by the talented illustrator, creative worker and parent, Susanna Harrison. We were delighted when Susanna offered to design our fete poster. Susanna has truly captured the spirit of our fete and school community. Take a look at her amazing work here www.susannaharrison.com.au

Mike Galvin, founder of the Darlo Darlings, will be our Master of Ceremonies (MC) on fete day. A seasoned presenter, we can’t wait to have Mike connect and welcome everyone to our 170th year celebrations at Crown Street Public School.

Who will be our DJ for the day?


Jeremy Thomas is not just a DJ, but a super cool dad at school and a former Crownie!  Jeremy has always been involved in music so when he hit the ‘wheels of steel’ (turntables),  back in the ‘share house’ days of Surry Hills, a passion turned into a job and an events business.  Always a crowd pleaser for birthdays and corporate events, Jeremy will be entertaining the fete crowd with some ‘cool summer vibes’. A veritable jack of all trades; his current role as a freelance sales executive for Vegware (plant based catering disposables) leaves time to run a Redfern pop up and workshop area ‘Cubby Space’ and care for his daughter who attends Crown Street Public School.

Check out Cubby Space here www.cubbyspace.co or send Jeremy an e-mail 2010jeremy@gmail.com to discuss music for your 40th, 50th or corporate event.

Who will be our Fairy God Mother for the day?

We are very lucky to have the Founding Fairy God Mother of Periwinkle Parties, Adelaide, face painting at our fete. Thank you Periwinkle Parties for your support!
