Every year, Mr & Ms FHS is one of the most exciting, popular and elegant evenings at Fairmont High School. An opportunity is given each year to twelve grade 12 learners who have gone through a selection process to participate in this once in a lifetime event. Months of organising, practising and hard work culminate in a glamorous show whereby the twelve candidates model, dance, perform a talent, and answer questions.

Besides all the glitz and glam, the candidates are expected to obtain sponsors for the show and select a charitable organisation to support. Half the proceeds of the show go to the Fairmont Student Fund and half to the winners’ choice of charity.
