Queenstown Primary School teacher Liam Kortegast gets splashed for cash at Sunday's school fair.

The event, the school's main fundraiser, featured pony and fire engine rides, a chocolate wheel and bouncy calls, as well as food stalls.

The fair switched to Sunday this year because it clashed with the Gibbston Food and Wine Festival and the early Easter holiday.

It raised about $36,000.

PTA treasurer Barbara McDonnell said: ‘‘The fact that it didn't rain, we were all absolutely delighted.''
