Fiona Cairns Talk

Dear Parents, children and staff,

Please accept a final reminder that Fiona Cairns will be in school tomorrow (Tuesday from 4:20-5:20pm) and will be talking to the children, staff and parents.  All children in Year 5 -8 will attend, as this is their normal prep time.  Younger children are welcome to attend (with their parents) and all parents/relatives/friends are most welcome.

After Fiona’s presentation there will be a chance to ask her some questions.  Then we will hold a free raffle for the children, with a chance to win one of her cakes.  Following this we will auction off some of her cakes, in aid of Fiona’s charity – THE AKSHAR TRUST (which she will mention during her talk). We have chosen to not charge for tickets to the talk, but instead there will be a ‘leaving collection’ in aid of the charity.  We are hoping to raise over £150, so children and parents please be prepared and bring some cash into school on Tuesday.

Finally, at around 5:20pm, there will be a chance to buy one of Fiona’s cookbooks (£12, £14 or £17 – see below) and/or aprons (child £10 or adult £12) and get them signed by her.  This could make a very good ‘Mother’s Day’ or birthday present. So again, please be prepared, as we will only be able to accept cash or cheques.


If you have any queries about the event please contact Mr Palmer at
