Summer Fair - Saturday 15th June 2019

Time: An action packed afternoon from 12pm to 3pm

Hello! We are delighted to welcome you to the Summer Fair!

We are thrilled to be able to tell you that due to their huge popularity last year we are once again offering donkey rides! Find them behind the Year 3 and 4 classrooms. We have a fantastic range of performers to entertain us today; see the programme of events below and make sure you don’t miss anything. Performances will be outside the Kent Hall.

As ever, we have a fantastic range of stalls and activities with something for everyone. You will find the ever-popular crazy sand and hair-spray stands in the Year 5 and 6 classrooms, along with the nail bar. If you want a tattoo this year, make your way to the bouncy castles. No really. On the playground and the field you will find all your favourites from Welly Wanging to Beat the Goalie, and don’t forget the classic Toilet Roll Toss.

The bar is on the grass by the Kent Hall, next to the BBQ. Please remember the whole bar area is for over 18s only, soft drinks are available in the Kent Hall along with teas, coffees and cakes. There is also an ice-cream van ready to supply you with your favourite cones and lollies. Don’t forget to visit the Silent Auction and Pop a Prize stalls, this year we have some truly incredible prizes up for grabs.

If you should require first aid, please find a member of the team (wearing a red sash) who will be able to help you.

We would like to say a big thank you to the Boxgrove staff, parents and children for the help and support they have given us in organising today’s fair. We would especially like to thank our fabulous MCs for making sure we all know what’s going on when.

Huge thanks also goes to all the local companies who have been so generous, especially our main sponsors Burns and Webber Estate Agents. Please find the list of sponsors on the programme below.

Have your raffle tickets to hand for the draw at the end of the fair. Don’t worry, there are still some on sale if you haven’t got yours yet. This is the Boxgrove PTA’s main fund-raising event of the year and all the money goes to improving and enhancing the children’s experience of school. Without you it would not be possible, so thank you.

Have a great a afternoon!

You can also leave contributions outside the new PTA shed by the little car park.• Good - quality toys and cuddly toys (washed, please!)• New toiletries, unused stationery, craft items, or anything that can fill baskets (we’ll take baskets, too) to be sold  as new or good - as - new• Books of all types – except out - of - date manuals, encyclopaedias etc• CDs, DVDs, electronic games (no videos or cassettes, thanks)


VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

Class reps will soon be asking for help to fill the rota for your class’ s allocated stall. Please do sign up, it makes a huge difference if everybody lends a hand for half an hour or an hour.It can be a tough job being a class rep so please get in touch with yours to offer your help. We can’t run the fair without you, please don’t assume somebody else will do it. The barbecue, for example, needs 25 people to run smoothly over the four hours so please don’t ignore messages asking you to get involved.  If everybody does their bit the fair can be a huge success, and everyone gets to enjoy the day.
 

MATCH FUNDING

Do you work for a company that offers a match funding scheme?
Many companies offer to match an employee’s charitable fundraising pound for pound (up  to a maximum amount). Generally, the employee must have been involved in the fundraising event, for example volunteering on a stall at the Summer Fair. This means that if you help out on, say, the Splat the Rat stall and the stall makes £500 (a lot of rats) then your employer could be willing to match that with a further £500. 

How can I get involved in this marvellous plan?
Great question. CLICK HERE to find a list of companies we believe run match funding schemes but it’s by no means comprehensive. It is not just the corporate giants that are involved; you may work for a smaller outfit that is keen on charitable giving. All you need to do is speak to HR.

If your company does offer a match funding scheme then please speak to a member of the Summer Fair committee and, of course, let your class rep know that you are keen to help out on the stall allocated to your child’s class. 

Annually, the BPTA raises around £30 ,000  to be invested in equipment and activities that improve and enrich your child’s school experience. Previously, £3,000 of that came from one  parent  whose  employer  fund  matched  a  stall  at  the  Summer  Fair  and  one  at  the Christmas Fair. Just think how much more we could raise if you got your company involved.
We look forward to seeing you at the fair!

The 2018 Summer Fair raised a fantastic £10,533.64p!!

What was the money spent on?

The PTA has funded the upgrading and improvement works to the KS1 playground. The first phase has been completed with smart new astro turf, giving the look of fresh grass all year round. The second phase should be carried out later on in the year and this will comprise of new play equipment for the children.

The PTA has also funded Maths trays for each year group to ensure there are enough resources for everyone. This will ensure the maths mastery approach is being taught effectively with the use of enough resources for all children. Resources are a crucial necessity when teaching maths to ensure all children are able to access and understand their learning.

Other money donated by the PTA will be funding:

The top 100 books for years 3, 4, 5, and 6 with other years planned.

Focus weeks.

Christmas crackers for the children’s Christmas dinner.

A donation to each class for equipment and resources.

Allotment funding for Mr Stevenson.
