Alma Public School will be holding their own Carols by Candlelight tomorrow evening to get into the Christmas spirit.

The event is being organised by the Alma P and C to help raise money for the school.

Spokeswoman Dianna McCann said it was the first time the school had staged the event.

"Anyone from the public is welcome to come, you don't have to be an Alma student or live out in the South area," she said.

All the students were getting very excited for the event, according Mrs McCann.

"The choirs will be singing, class stages, past Alma students and the Expression Ensemble led by Marilyn Harris," she said.

Mrs McCann said there will many attractions for the family and items for sale including candles and glow sticks.

Hot and cold food, cold drinks, ice cream sundaes and spiders will also be available.

"There will be face painting, hair feathers, jumping castle, fairy floss, toffee apples, ice donuts, cake stall, pancakes, Thankakli dancers, didgeridoo player, stall, games and much more," Mrs McCann said.

Anyone interested in holding a craft stall can come along and set up on the night.

"The more the merrier, we don't need any food stalls as we have that covered," Mrs McCann said.

"There will be a barbecue and then the singing."

Mrs McCann said the night should be enjoyable and relaxing.

"Come out for a good night and get in the Christmas spirit," she said.

The Carols event will be held on the Alma Public School Oval and starts at 6.30pm. People are advised to bring a chair or blanket to sit on.
