Seasonal events

Tarremah celebrates the rhythm of the year by celebrating the seasons. Our festivals are community events where families gather in reverence to celebration. Past students will often return, acknowledging their lasting connection to the community.

Harvest Festival

The Harvest is celebrated with joyful games and a picnic to celebrate the bounty of Autumn. Traditional games of apple bobbing and tug of war are played. Students also make a preparation of biodynamic 500, which is scattered on the gardens throughout the school.

Lantern Festival

Children enjoy making their own lantern and bringing light to the darkening winter. A gathering of families, Tarremah students (past and present), and teachers walk together through Huntingfield. On the school oval, they enjoy a performance of fire twirling by the older children, before making their way homeward.

Winter Spiral

The Winter Spiral is a night of reverence and wonder for children and their parents. While the school joins together in song, each child walks to the centre of the spiral to light their candle from the mother flame. Each small flame adds to the growing spiral, celebrating the return of light to the world.

Spring Festival

The school gathers in the amphitheatre to sing seasonal songs, while also performing plays and musical pieces for the rest of the school. Together, we welcome the birth of new life in the animal and plant kingdoms.

Spring Fair and Open Day

The Tarremah Spring Fair is an event for the whole community. Thousands of people attend each year and get an opportunity to enjoy traditional games and delicious, wholesome foods. The classrooms are open, and parents are encouraged to see their children’s work and chat with teachers.
