School Fete Update


The 2015 School Fête is now approaching and plans are developing fast. The fête has always been organised primarily by the children and we want to maintain this philosophy but this year we are planning a few improvements. We are hoping to have more stalls for parents to visit. We already have a London Taxi Cab Photo Booth, a Cartoonist, a ‘Bake Off’ cake sale, a bottle tombola, a jewellery stall, a golf challenge, Monsieur Crepe and some craft stalls.  

We are hoping for some additional craft stalls please let us know if you, or someone you know of, who would like to have a stall on the day. We would just ask for a small donation to the fête proceeds. 

Donations for the bottle tombola (run by the staff) and toy tombola (run by Year 3) would be very much appreciated and can be delivered to either myself or the school office from now onwards.

We are having a central arena this year which will host a number of activities such as; a dog show, inter-form space hopper races, inter-form (and possibly parent) trike races, a taekwondo demonstration, a keepy uppy challenge and music etc. 

 Again if you can offer any activity please let us know.

Finally, we are hoping to cut down on the number of sweet based stalls. There will be no stalls selling sweets and we would be most grateful if you could encourage your children to try and think of alternative prizes for their stalls. The fête will not be a sweet free zone, but we are just trying to cut back a bit!

The form teachers will be helping Years 3-8 to plan and design their stalls but your help and input is also welcomed and valued.

Please note that the overall theme will be the 2015 Rugby World Cup. We look forward to seeing you all on 2nd July.

UPDATE Mrs Myers has kindly offered to run a plant stall. If any parents can donate any plants from their gardens/greenhouses please contact Mrs Myers, or just drop them by the foyer on the morning of the fete. Please label them if at all possible.

Yours sincerely

DAVID PALMER (Fete Co-ordinator)
