Camberwell Primary School French Fete

Camberwell Primary School French Fete

17 March 2013

The Camberwell Primary School French Fete was another great success despite the somewhat overcast day and the competition with celebrations for St Patrick’s Day and the Melbourne Formula 1 Grand Prix on at the same time. Here are a few photos that I took and the full details from the original event listing on the Camberwell Network website. Already looking forward to 2014!

A little slice of France comes to Camberwell on March 17th as Camberwell Primary School – Victoria’s first English and French bilingual school – host their annual French Fete. 

Don’t eat too much before you arrive, because gastronomic delicacies are the order of the day.  Indulge in a freshly cooked crepe, a baguette with cheese, escargots (cooked snails) or some pieces of gateaux (cake) while enjoying live performances (we have some very special celebrity guests this year – more information to come), loads of rides, fabulous silent auction offerings and exciting activities. 

Whether you’re a connoisseur of all things French, looking for that certain je ne sais quoi, or simply out to have a fantastic day of fun, bargains and experiences, there’s every chance you’ll find it at Camberwell Primary School, 290 Camberwell Road, Camberwell.
