Torsos to go on show at fete and heritage markets

IPSWICH Girls' Grammar School fete and heritage markets are set to be a major attraction locally next week.

The fete and market day will be held on Saturday, August 2, and is run by the school's old girls' association from 10am-3pm in the assembly hall. Entry is free.

It is the third time the fete has been held on school grounds, after outgrowing its previous home at Rockton House.

Kym Powell, an old girls' fete committee member, said the day was going to be an outstanding one for a variety of reasons.

"We've got wonderful support from local stall holders and all sorts of food, drinks and wine tasting," she said.

"There will be home-made craft and jazz from Jasper Smith."

There will be a wide variety of art for sale, although the display of the torsos created by the school's indigenous art students will be for display purposes only.

"It is extremely personal story of their journey through life, and that is just to look at," Ms Powell said.

"But everything else in the hall will be for sale."

There will also be a display of the world's largest art in bark picture, which will be for sale.

They day will also feature be rock climbing walls, jumping castles, a mechanical bull and a dunk tank that will feature some of the teachers.
