OUR PHILOSOPHY AND COMMITMENT 

The Surf Coast Kite Festival is a fun, free community event and fundraiser for Jan Juc Preschool.

It is the philosophy of Jan Juc Preschool that children be encouraged to learn and grow through a play-based curriculum that reflects the individual and unique nature of every child. The Surf Coast Kite Festival was an idea born out of this philosophy, to create an outdoor event that everyone – young and old – could enjoy.

The Surf Coast Kite Festival is a “plastic wise” event. This is an event committed to reducing or eliminating single-use plastic, reusing event materials and promoting the use of reusable bags and water bottles.

Learn more about the Surf Coast Shire Council Plastic Wise Program here.

The festival’s aim is to be a zero-landfill waste event and focus as much as possible on compostable solutions. Thanks to the amazing team at B-Alternative, there will be “Bin Fairies” positioned at each waste station on the day to help Festival goers choose the correct bin to dispose of their rubbish. This will serve the purpose of educating patrons, controlling waste at the Festival and ensuring cross-contamination of waste does not occur.

We encourage all Festival visitors to bring their own drink bottle and resusable coffee cup and other utensils where possible. All food and beverage vendors at the Festival have committed to supplying their fare in compostable or recyclable packaging.

The festival has also pledged to “blow bubbles not balloons” and is registered with Zoos Victoria as a supporter of their “When balloons fly, seabirds die” campaign.

Thank you to our wonderful sponsors

This Children’s Week activity is presented by Great Ocean Road Coast Committee Incorporated in partnership with the Victorian Government.
Thank you also to Torquay Farmers Market for the use of their marquees on the day and B-Alternative for their assistance in aiming to make this a zero-landfil event.
