SUMMER FAIR FRIDAY 17TH JUNE-3.30PM
The St George’s Summer Fair is next Friday. We will start straight after school with the school choir opening proceedings. We are looking for the usual donations for the various stalls. Children in phase 1 have been asked to bring in sweets; children in phase 2 are all asked to bring a bottle of any sort. These will go on the bottle stall or in the raffle. Please bring in the usual books, toys and raffle prizes, etc. Children in year 6 will be running their ‘enterprise stalls’ with a variety of games and activities. We have a bouncy castle planned and a Fire Engine promised. There will be the usual refreshments available and Mr Hylton will be entertaining the crowds with his keyboard. Please come along and enjoy the fun and raise money to support various activities in school.
Cricket Team through to the County Finals
Well done to the school cricket team who beat Apley School at the St George’s tournament to go through to the County finals on June 21st. The school second team also did well in the tournament despite being mostly year 5 children.
