Fancy Dress Ball
Mareeba State School, along with the P&C, hold a Fancy Dress Ball for all students and families every second year. Many families enjoy engaging with the school community at this fun and entertaining event. The competition to win the 'best costume' is hotly contested every year.
The P&C holds the school fete every two years (alternating with the Fancy Dress Ball). This event is a major fundraiser for our school. Monies raised go directly to students at our school through facilities and curriculum support.
This school event is open to all of the Mareeba community and is well supported by community residents and local businesses. The fireworks display to finish the fete has become a highlight for everyone.
