Friday 24th November 2017


Dear St. Mary's Parents and Carers,

Believe it or not we are fast approaching Christmas and so we have all been carefully planning our Christmas festivities.
Our Christmas Fayre this year will be straight after school on Friday 1st December and we have decided on the theme of a  Christmas Market this year. It will take place in the Junior School playground and the Infant garden.

In preparation for our Fayre we will be having our usual collections.
Nursery—collecting Christmas decorations.
Reception—collecting boys or girls toys.
Year 1-  collecting Christmas food.
Year 2—collecting pamper items (e.g. body lotion, after shave, soaps).
Year 3  - Christmas decorations
Year 4  - boy or girls toys
Year 5  - Christmas food
Year 6—pamper items

We are also collecting jam jars filled with sweets, pencils, notebooks, Christmas decorations or anything that you feel children may enjoy. Please encourage your children to decorate them and make them as Christmassy as possible.

They can be any colour and this year every child who brings in a beautifully decorated and filled jam jar will receive a raffle ticket and an opportunity to win a very special prize.

If you don’t have a jam jar you can use a plastic bottle with the top cut off (please put tape around the top so the edges are not sharp), a Pringles box, or anything you can find which is of a similar size.

Friday 24th November will be a mufti day. On this day the children can wear their own clothes and we respectfully ask for a donation of a bottle (alcoholic or soft drinks), £1 or a packet of sweets for our stalls.


 We are on the look out for anyone who would like to help us set up on the day or help run a stall. Also if you have any connections with any local businesses that might be willing to sponsor our Fayre in some way e.g.
provide a gift that we could raffle. Please contact either of the school offices with the details.

We really do want to make this a wonderful St Mary’s community event that everyone can enjoy.
Remember all funds raised are spent on the children at St. Mary’s.

Kindest regards,

Miss O’Callaghan
