Queenstown Primary School raised almost $40,000 at its annual fair on Saturday.

Michelle Clarke, organiser and president of the school's parent teacher association, was ``stoked'' with how the day went.

``It was an awesome day ... the community really got behind the fair which was great,'' she said.

Sara Wamington enjoyed her day ``mooching around and eating popcorn'' with her friend Stella Rhind. Both live in Queenstown.

They were ready to enter the best-dressed competition.

A chocolate wheel, book store, cake auction stall, ``blokes bake-off'', easter egg hunt, face painting and bouncy castle were all part of the event.

The newest addition to the fair, the ``teacher stocks'', at which people paid to throw water-filled sponges at teachers, was a great success Ms Clarke said.

One thing she was particularly impressed by was a table years 7 and 8 pupils from the school had built.

It was sold for $500 on the day and the person who bought it donated it back to the school.

The fair is the school's big fundraiser for the year.
