All the parents of the students are required to participate by being placed on the roster for one activity for half an hour during the night. My job was to supervise the "Mystery Golf", Rob's was "Pigs Can Fly" and Andrew had half an hour working on the fairyfloss machine.

The amount of activities is amazing and the variety of food is fantastic. They have steak sandwiches, sausage sandwiches, fish and chips, hot dogs, tea and coffee and scones. There is a fantastic cake stall, bric a brac, book stall, heaps of rides and games.

By participating in this once a year carnival it gives you a wonderful opportunity to catch up with people that you don't see that often. I would probably know about a third of the people who attend but certainly not all, which is often surprising to friends back in Australia who think that everyone knows everyone else and it is simply not true. There are still people I meet who have lived here forever and we have never met before.

We were advised that a total of $17,500 was raised on the night which is spectacular as the population on the island is not as prosperous as it once was. It is one of the most popular nights on the island and we will miss it a lot when we leave.
