A PIRATE ship and a Prep class full of buccaneers have sailed in for Brighton State School's fete on Saturday, August 26.
The new pirate-themed playground will be a big feature at the event.
Fete committee member Christine Chamberlain said they try to host a fete at the school every other year.
"We're trying to keep it family friendly and fairly cheap (for activities),” she said.
"There's heaps of rides, four inflatables, a petting zoo, pony rides and small crafty things - decorating biscuits, and making wind chimes and money boxes all out of recyclable materials.
"Every class is doing a dance for us and Bracken Ridge State High School band will play.”
The pirate playground was installed earlier this year during school holidays.
"I spent a couple of days here shovelling sand with about 20 parents,” Ms Chamberlain said.
"The boat is our school symbol so we've had a connection with the water and pirates. In Prep every year, we have a pirate day in the park.”
For the fete, the school's oval will be overflowing with fun for the whole family with amusement rides, food, entertainment and more.
Mrs Chamberlain said money raised at this year's fete would go towards technology and a Makerspace in the school library,” she said.
Brighton State School is located on 2 North Road and the fete will run from 11am to 4pm on Saturday.
