Thank you to everyone who made the Xmas Fair such a great success yet again. It was clear that all the children were having the best best time. The atmosphere in the school was super festive helped by everyone’s beautifully decorated stalls, Mr Sabatini’s choir, the arrival of Santa and of course the snow. We appreciate all your efforts in donating, making, baking, dressing up, selling & clearing up. A special thank you to all Class Reps who organised rotas and managed their stalls to ensure each class was represented in the best possible way.
Santa opened the Fair and Mr Sabatini had the children singing joyously. The Fair was buzzing with atmosphere both inside and outside. The Traditional Christmas Market Fair offered a terrific range of goods for parents and children alike.
The MCCA had the pleasure of presenting a cheque of £30,000 to Mrs Walsh as a result of 2013/14 school year fundraising. These funds are now being used to kick start the playground project to start in January 2015.
All expenses are now in, the final profit for this year is an amazing £12,023. This compares to £9,000 last Christmas which certainly makes 2014 a bumper year.
A huge thank you to Raffle, Silent Bid and Red Letter teams who managed to secure a huge number of great prizes which helped push the final figure up considerably.
We would also like to say a big thank you to Christina O’Hare and Herb Williams who co-ordinated and designed this years fabulous Christmas Fair programme and posters. This programme raised £1,200 (after expenses and is included in above figure).
