Summer Fair

Dear parents

Summer Fair 2018 is now only 5 weeks away! It is a major fundraiser for the school we really need your help and time to make it a success.

A blue form asking for donations and volunteers have been sent via the school bags some days ago. Thank you to everybody who had already offered to help out with/at the Fair. We still need more helpers, so please consider volunteering on the day of the Fair or in the build-up and complete the form and return it to the office. If you misplaced your form, please e-mail  instead.

Also, please keep the donations coming – we need more of these to have the tombolas well stocked for the Fair. The suggested split of donations per class is indicated below but any of the below donations will be greatly received.  

Nursery, P1K, P1S, P2C, P2R – Lucky Dip items (small presents, bags of sweets or stationery that cost up to £1)

P3K, P3H/P, P4W, P7M, P7M/R – Chocolate and sweet tombola

P4B, P5/6Mc, P5B, P5D, P6H – Summer Tombola (outdoor toys, bats, balls, buckets\spades, beach inflatables)

Anyone wishing to donate home bakes (no cream or nuts please) – please bring them to the dining hall by 3.15 pm on Friday 22nd June.

As you know, a very important part of this fundraiser is the Raffle. We already have some nice prizes but we would love to see some bigger items added. If you, or the company you work for, are in position to donate a big prize – PLEASE get in touch (the same e-mail as above)!

Thank you for your ongoing support
