TEACHERS got soaked and students enjoyed sweets, cakes and games of splat the rat at Mead Vale Primary School’s fete.

Mead Vale Primary School held its fete on Saturday.

The fair was full of traditional games including a coconut shy and splat the rat.

Students from Weston College attended the event and Matt Lightfoot showed off a piece of Larch Tree he found which has now been transformed into a reading chair for the school.

There were jars full of sweets to include in a jar bazaar and other students donated bottles of goodies to be raffled off at the bottle tombola.

Children also took in their home-grown sunflowers for judging, with some reaching impressive heights.
