The Summer Fayre will soon be upon us, and we are looking forward to it being another huge success. It is one of our most important fundraising events of the year. There is a huge amount of preparation involved in getting everything ready to make it a great day for everyone.
This year we are planning a ‘garden party’ style affair with plenty of bunting, a bouncy castle, summer themed craft stall, BBQ, strawberries and cream and a Pimms tent, so let’s keep our fingers crossed for some good weather!
Here are details of the contributions you and your family can make once we return to school after half term. We really do need your help!
- Sell the Raffle tickets
Raffle tickets are only 50p each and you have the chance to win some great prizes! Tickets are in the white envelope sent home along with this letter. Please try and sell as many tickets as possible to friends, family, colleagues etc and return all the raffle tickets (including any unsold tickets) to school office as soon as possible but by Friday 21st June at the latest.
- Donate a Raffle Prize
Do you own a company, or could your place of work donate a prize to go into the Raffle Draw? These stalls always raise a lot of money and depend upon the fabulous prizes that our generous school community donates. We have received gift vouchers, event tickets, hampers, haircuts, doggy care and grooming vouchers – everything is very much appreciated. If you can donate a prize, please complete the slip at the end of this letter and give it to the school office by Wednesday 19th June.
- Enter our Summer Fayre Programme Front Cover Competition
Children – are you a budding artist and would like to see your work published on the front cover of the Summer Fayre Programme? Please submit your design on A4 paper, labelled with your name and class on the back. If your child’s design is chosen as a winning entry, it will be reproduced, therefore please submit designs in pen, not pencil to ensure their wonderful work shows up clearly. Please hand your entry to your class teacher by Wednesday 19th June. There will be a fantastic prize for a winner from each class.

The aim of our PTA is to raise extra funds for the school, and in doing so to hold a variety of events for the children and their families.
We have a committee comprising of parents and staff who meet each term to plan events. Behind the scenes we also have a lot of very supportive parents who help out at the large events such as the Christmas Fayre, the Summer Fayre, School Discos etc.
Not every event is solely to raise money. During the year we try to organise a couple of social evenings for families. For example we have a popular ‘Bingo’ evening. These occasions help to bring together parents, staff and children outside school hours socially.
Having raised the money we then ask the headteacher and staff which items the school is in need of. We also subsidise the cost of swimming and some school trips or in-school workshops.
We are always looking for new members or ideas. The Annual General Meeting is held in September, so do come along. We are open to any suggestions to help our children to have the best opportunities in school.
