Thank you to everyone who made donations and came along to support our Christmas Fair.  We raised almost £1000, and in addition to this the School Council Stall raisen £300 for their chosen cause, the School Building Fund.
It was a lovely evening, and the children enjoyed surprise visits from Father Christmas and Princess Elsa, as well as enjoying the wide variety of stalls and face painting on offer.
Our raffle was extremely successful once again, with a profit of £725.  Thank you
