The Bendigo Easter Fair Society would like to thank all the children who put in the time and effort to enter our Poster Competition (Primary School section). There were a lot of great quality entries which made the decision quite difficult.

  • Jayda Alford from Huntly Primary School – Year 5/6.

We would also like to make special mention to:

  • Ned Johnson from St Francis of the Fields – Year 4

Congratulations once again to the winner.

Hope to see you all at the 2020 150th Bendigo Easter Fair.
