Fun fair coming to NCS Sept. 21

Updated: Sep 18, 2023

An evening out for the whole family!

Students and their families are invited to the annual Fun Fair at Nanaimo Christian School!


Thursday, September 21 from 5:00 pm - 7:30 pm


Come build community with teachers & other NCS families. Join in the excitement and activities on the sports field behind the school. This is a family event. Thank you for staying with your children throughout the evening and leaving your dog at home.


In order to run smoothly we rely on parent sign ups to supervise bouncy castles, serve dinner, help with clean up, etc. If there are no volunteers signed up for certain time slots we will have to close the game/bouncy castle until the next slotted parent volunteer arrives. This event is a great way to get in your volunteer hours early. Each hour worked counts double the time toward your 20 hours.


What's happening

  • Inflatable fun with bouncy castles, obstacle courses and jousting

  • Carnival and lawn games with teachers

  • Cupcake walk & photo booth

  • Hot dogs, chips and drinks (gluten free and vegetarian options)


Parking

Our parking lots and roadside parking are unable to accommodate everyone at the same time. To make your Fun Fair arrival and departure safe and swift, there are two free shuttle bus parking locations. Please use this option as there will be limited parking and access at NCS. The shuttle bus will run continuously throughout the evening from the Cavallotti Lodge (2060 East Wellington Rd.) and Unity Vancouver Island (2331 East Wellington Rd.).


Cost

The annual Fun Fair is made possible through your kind donations, which help offset expenses. At the event you can donate via cash, e-transfer, debit, credit card or through an online link. You can donate now at this link:



Get involved

It takes many dedicated volunteers to make Fun Fair happen. Thank you to the parents, grandparents and students who have already signed up to volunteer. There are still plenty of opportunities to help, and we cannot run this event without you filling the 200+ volunteer slots! For every hour you volunteer you receive 2 hours toward your parent participation hours.




Did you know?

As a Level 1-funded school in the province of BC, Nanaimo Christian School receives 50% of the student grant given to local public schools. NCS must raise additional operational funds from tuition fees and donations to cover events, programs, services and costs such as building utilities, maintenance and expansion.


Thank you for your support! Whether you are volunteering, donating an item, donating your skill or your time, we are so thankful that you are here. Our community is better for having you!
