Salesian College will be Sunbury central on Sunday.

For its bustling Rupertswood Harvest, the college is this year extending the fun – and the fundraising opportunities – to primary schools and community groups.

Fresh produce, a petting farm, homecraft, games, face-painting, equestrian demonstrations, pony rides, live entertainment and a range of food will be on offer at the family day.

Organiser Kerri Pozaic said the harvest festival was designed to be an affordable way for locals to engage, spend time together and enjoy plenty of old-fashioned fun.

“We’ve got gumboot throwing and lots of free activities,” she said.

Ms Pozaic said local primary schools and community groups would raise funds by selling produce from their own vegie patches and community groups would host information stalls and give workshops on topics such as worm farming.

Salesian College students will showcase work from their agricultural studies and give demonstrations such as sheep shearing.

The students will even be selling toothpaste made in their science classes.

The Rupertswood Harvest will be on Sunday, October 29, from 10am-2pm at Salesian College, 1 Macedon Street, Sunbury. Entry will be free.

Sunbury Coaches will provide free buses from Sunbury train station to the school from 11am-1pm.
