I acknowledge the extraordinary Wilkins Fair Day and celebrate the achievements of the outstanding staff, students, parents and carers at Wilkins Public School in Marrickville. The fair was a testament to the hardworking, committed and creative school community at Wilkins. It featured flower stalls, carnival rides, ahandmade woodworking stall, food from around the world, a dragon puppet workshop, live performances throughout the day and—in true inner west style—a Zen room with tai chi, Pilates and sound healing. There was also a great line-up includingdunking the Inner West mayor in the tank, which was an absolute highlight.
I acknowledge the exceptional work of the Wilkins Public School P&C, including its wonderful president, Amanda Brown, and fair coordinator Veronica Mayson. I also acknowledge Ms Sheila Bollard, the Wilkins school principal. Their hard work and visionary planning made this much more than just another fundraising fair; it was a showcase of everything people love about the Wilkins school community. I congratulate everyone involved.
