Last Friday our KS2 children, who ran a stall to raise funds for school playtime equipment, really surpassed themselves. All of the children were incredibly organised and were so kind and caring towards our younger children who came to the fair. It was lovely to see everyone milling around and enjoying themselves.
I would like to thank our Children's Fair Committee - who with just a little help this year, coordinated the whole event. Thank you to our stall holders who did a marvellous job - it was the best yet! And thank you to all of our children who brought in their pocket money to spend. We raised a mighty £307.13 which will go towards buying new playtime equipment. I will be meeting with the Children's Fair Committee next week to present them with the catalogue. The team will then consult with each class to see what they will like and then the order will be placed. I promise that new playtime equipment will be available for all of the children to use before the end of next half term. Well done everybody - you should be proud of yourselves.
I think this will be the last year we will be able to solely run it in the school hall as we are just too big as a school now...so next year the Children's Fair will be held in the summer term where we will be able to use the outdoors environment too (if the weather is kind to us of course!!!)
