Preparing for the Summer Fair

Friends of Central, our PTA (parent teacher association) organises a Summer Fair every year. Our Summer Fair is an informal opportunity for our school community to get together and celebrate another successful school year.  The Summer Fair is also an opportunity for the PTA to fund raise for the school. In the past the PTA has then used this money to pay towards  Birthday books, play equipment, Guided Reading books and so many other things.
 
The Summer Fair is our biggest social event of the year. It happens on the school playground that is packed with different stalls. There are things for sale, like food and drinks, but also a lot of different fun activities for children to participate. Some of the favourites every year are face painting, raffle, different quizzes and international food.
 
As we are preparing for the Summer Fair is this an opportunity for all the members of our school community to think if they could help organise this lovely event. There are lots of opportunities for parents and carers to participate, either by bringing something in to be sold, or actually helping set up and run the event on the day. 
 
To collect raffle prices, we are organising two non-uniform days in the upcoming week. In both days, we are asking different year groups to contribute with a small price towards our Summer Fair stalls, in case the child wants to participate in the non-uniform day. 
The details about the non-uniform days are below.
 
If you have any questions or you would like to offer to help at the Summer Fair, please join one of the Friends of Central meetings or leave your details at the office, so we can be in touch with you. The Friends of Central meetings will be every Wednesday at 3 pm. 
 
 
 
Hope to see you all at our Summer Fair on the 6th July 12- 2.30 pm!
