Christmas Fayre, Friday 7 December

What happens at the Christmas Fayre?

The Christmas Fayre is on Fri 7 December this year and runs for the full school day.

In the morning the children come down a class at a time with their teacher and spend some time going round the stalls buying cakes, toys/books. From 1.30pm – 3.15pm parents and carers are invited to come along. You can pick up your children early from their class to go round the fayre with you if you want. A café runs in the dining hall in the afternoon selling tea, coffee, juice and cakes.

The money we raise makes a huge difference to the school. Last year the Fayre raised over £3,200 and over the year we raised around £7,000 in total. This helped fund playground improvements and teaching resources.

Here’s how you can help:

  • Come along!
  • Make a donation
  • Volunteer to help out on the day

See below for a stall by stall guide to the type of donations you might want to make and for details of where to drop them off.

If you are interested in volunteering to help out on the day contact Linda McCormick
