Lego land heading to Wirreanda Public School

THE Rotary Club of Williamtown has joined forces with Wirreanda Public School to hold a Brickfest in Medowie for the first time.

Brickfest, an event involving building blocks such as Lego, will be held at Wirreanda Public School between 9.30am and 4pm on Sunday, September 25.

The event is the first time the Rotary club has held a Lego-inspired fund-raising event, the club’s president-elect, Steven Merritt, said.

“The idea came from a seven-year-old boy,” he said.

“[The child] asked his parents to take him to one [Brickfest] in Newcastle.

“The parent, a member of our club, brought along the idea to hold a Legofest.

“The response was staring at them blankly and asking “what is that?” but it grew from there.”

Rainbow Bricks, a not-for-profit organisation, has organised for more than 25 Lego exhibitors to show their brick creations, including a city layout and space diorama, at the school on the day.

There will also be Lego items for sale on the day including everything from parts, mini figurines, sets and merchandise.

A block building area will be available for those who are inspired to create. 

There will also be a speed build competition run throughout the day.

Entry is $4 per person or $10 for families. 

The school’s P&C will have a cake stall, sausage sizzle and a coffee van operating.

Funds raised will be used to support Port Stephens Sailability based at Grahamstown Dam, Australian Rotary Health and Wirreanda Public School.
