I congratulate the Wilkins Public School community in Marrickville on recently celebrating the school's fortieth anniversary in style at the Wilkins Fortieth Birthday Fair.

On a sunny Saturday the school grounds were transformed into a pop-up carnival and amusement park.

Students, families and locals enjoyed a huge variety of delicious local food, including street food offerings and the best cake stall I have ever seen. There was lots of local live music for everyone to enjoy.

I thank the educators at Wilkins for their tireless efforts over the past four decades, and I also thank Kelda Richards, the Wilkins P&C president, along with the other dedicated P&C organisers for putting on this fantastic community event.

I thank all the hardworking volunteers who made this wonderful day possible and who brought everyone together in our community, celebrating such a great local public school.

I congratulate Wilkins Public School on serving our community for 40 years.
