Since 1936, Shore has hosted an annual fair called the American Tea. It is a social day to raise funds supporting the education of boys and girls at Shore with equipment, bursaries, and improved facilities. It has always been held on a Friday as it is a day for the boys, however it is also a day for grandparents, parents and family friends to come and share in the fun.
The day starts with the Year 10 Father and Son BBQ, followed by the Grandparents’ Morning Tea before the boys rush out of class to Trash and Treasure, Fairy Floss, Lucky Jars, Show Bags, Skittles, Entertainment Rides and much more. The parents enjoy delicious coffee, scones, cakes, fresh produce from the country and international food and freshly shucked oysters amongst many tempting external stall holder wares.
It is a day for all to enjoy. We must thank those who generously volunteer and donate as the day would not be a success without them. Put it in your diary and come along, get involved and be a part of the Shore community.

All school parents are encouraged to be involved. During the year there are many events that help to raise funds towards stalls at the American Tea. These include the Mother’s Day Stall, Movie night, Gourmet and Sweets cooking days, and Tennis day. At the American Tea you can work on a stall for an hour or two, or you can offer to run one of the many stalls and recruit your friends to help on the day. Or alternatively you can just come along, spend some time shopping and enjoy lunch on the Chapel Lawn or the Quadrangle. There will be links available through the Shore Weekly Record and Shore Association Weekly to sign up and help out before and on the day.
