SUPER sale Saturday is just sleeps away.

The garage sale trail is on Saturday and Emerald North State School is your one stop shop for a bargain.

The school is holding its major fundraiser for the year selling old school furniture ranging from desks to general items, and starting from 8am until 1pm.

Held on the Borilla St side of the school grounds, the P&C committee has organised a day packed with plenty of activities for the whole family.

"We have on offer furniture, plants, books, cakes, hairspray, temporary tattoos, games for the kids, chocolate toss, splat the rat, raffles, $100 cash boards and multi-draw tickets available,” committee treasurer Bec Iles said.

"This is our biggest fundraiser for the year. All funds raised will be used to purchase new school banners and flags.

"We are accepting donations towards the sale up until Friday, and all remaining items after the sale will be donated to charity.”

Morning tea and lunch are catered for with a cake and bake stall plus a sausage sizzle and cold drinks for sale.

"We encourage everyone to come down for a bargain,” Bec said.

"So come along and show your support and find yourself a treasure or two.”

The school is also raffling off a home-made crochet blanket, made by 93-year-old Alice Meharry, to raise funds for the school's diverse learning centre.

The Emerald police will also be in attendance to register push bikes though adults must be present with a current drivers licence.

"We are asking for the bikes to be bought down to school with a parent or guardian and have the bike recorded by the Emerald police as crime prevention is a community effort,” she said.

For more information contact the school office on 4988 2333.
