Dear Parents and Carers,

Only four more weeks left of the school term and Christmas fever is amongst us! The Children are  excitedly  learning their lines and songs for our Nativities  and soon we will be practising the carols for our

Carols by Candlelight on the last day of term so please do make sure you make a note of the dates so you do not miss anything.

We have also started to plan our Christmas Fayre which will take place on Friday 6th December straight after school.

Since 2015, the Infant and Junior Schools have planned the Fayres

together but this year we are trying something different. The Infant School will run the Christmas Fayre and the Junior School will run the Summer Fayre.

We do as always need and value your help and participation. I have listed some items that you may like to

donate for our Christmas collections and if you are able to help set up the Fayre on the afternoon of 6th

December or would like to help make resources or run a stall, please give your name to the school office at the Infant School.

Kind regards,

Miss O’Callaghan 


Christmas Collections

In preparation for our Fayre we will be having our usual collections.

Nursery are collecting Christmas decorations.

Reception are collecting boys or girls toys.

Year 1 are collecting Christmas food.

Year 2 are collecting pamper items (e.g. body lotion, after shave, soaps).

We are also collecting plastic bottles or 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.
