Summer Fair Excitement

Date: May 20, 2016 Author: Nick Browne Categories: Fundraising, Latest News

This year our Summer Fair is on June the 18th from 1-4pm. We have so much lined up for this Summer Fair and it’s not long to go.  We are getting pretty excited and hope you are too!  Here are just some details of the the day’s line up: Entertainment includes Woodcote’s Got Talent Showcase performances from KS1 & KS2 and the Choirs in the main hall.

There will be delicious food cooked up by Sandy and her team served up from the school canteen (including Halal dishes) as well as the very traditional BBQ outside. The PTFA Committee have been brainstorming lots of great new games so expect lots of fun (and dare I say challenges) for the whole family. On the field there will be inflatables, Beat the Goalie, the Coconut Shy and lots of games involving water as well as lots of other activities too.

Our amazing Face Painters will be painting fantastic faces and spreading smiles (come along to our Face Painting Workshop on June 9th to practice before you sign-up to help!) and we’ll also have glitter tattoos, nail painting, our fab Craft Room, Drumming and Mini-Tennis in the upper car park as well as lots of fab shopping stalls.

We have been tracking down so many prizes they are coming out of our ears so make sure you buy some Raffle tickets and also check out all of our game stalls including the Washing Line Game! This Summer Fair promises to be a fabulous event and all of your time, effort and donations (check donation days below) help to raise money for our fantastic school.  Please support also us by doing a few sun dances in advance!

We rely on loads of volunteers for this event, so to ensure we can run as many stalls as possible please speak to your class rep, use our contact form or the Volunteer Contact Form on the school mobile app to volunteer.  If you haven’t downloaded it yet, click here!  We need people to help set up on Friday after school and Saturday morning, throughout the Fair (1-4pm) and from 4pm to help clear up so please just down whichever times you can do.

Are you a Face Painter?  Would you like to be? We are running a Face Painting Workshop from 3.30-4.30pm on Thursday the 9th of June.  Come along and build your confidence, learn hints & tricks and the Summer Fair faces so you’re all ready to volunteer at the Fair.  No need to book, just turn up and bring a child to practice on if you can.  This event will be run by regular Face Painting volunteers so you will also have an opportunity to meet other volunteers who will be there on the day.
