As part of Enterprise Week children are busy making gifts to sell at our Christmas Fair. There will be lots of other stalls from various local businesses. Also raffle, chocolate tombola and of course refreshments.

We would be grateful for donations of chocolate for our tombola and also raffle prizes. These can be brought into school anytime next week. Thank you for your support.
