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!

MUFTI DAYS – WEAR YOUR OWN CLOTHES TO SCHOOL
How can I get involved in this marvellous plan?
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.
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.
Christmas crackers for the children’s Christmas dinner.
A donation to each class for equipment and resources.
Allotment funding for Mr Stevenson.
