The Winter Fair was a tremendous success

The School Association Winter Fair was a tremendous success.  All the students had lots of fun playing games such as tombola, table football, hoopla, splat the rat and Sjoelen. There were lots of different side stalls selling Christmas decorations, pottery etc. A festive photo booth was available to capture the moment.  Everyone tucked into the delicious Indian snacks, cakes and refreshments with gusto.  Sixth form students ran stalls to raise money for their visits to Nicaragua for World Challenge and Lesotho, Africa.

The students also had the opportunity to find out all about bees and bee keeping as Paul Wisbey, a local beekeeper, attended with a mock–up hive and other beekeeping equipment. Lots of questions were answered, with the students showed a keen interest in the subject.  Approximately £1,200 was raised from this event and we are fortunate that the company of one of our parents has kindly agreed to match fund doubling the amount.
