Many thanks for your understanding.
Business was brisk at our Christmas Fayre on Saturday with some of our stalls selling out half way through the afternoon! We did marvelously on each stall and our professionalism and enthusiasm was commented on by all of our customers.
Thank you to all who donated materials, helped and bought our products, we are delighted that all of the groups made a profit for the Highland Hospice.
There are a few candle jars left so don’t worry if you missed out at the Fayre, we will be selling them this week with your choice of scented tealight!
We are sure you will agree, the Christmas Fayre was a huge success on Saturday. It was wonderful to see so many members of the community come along, as well as a huge turnout of pupils, families and friends of the school. As well as an array of activities and stalls, the class enterprise stalls were just fantastic and we believe the pupils involved sold out of just about everything! Their enthusiasm, salesmanship and attention to detail were inspiring.
We are delighted to tell you that we smashed last year’s grand total. The funds raised on Saturday (minus the class stalls) come to £3239!
As you know, our target is to get a new all weather pitch for the school, so we will, over the next few months, be exploring additional funding to make that happen. There is more fundraising to do so look out for an event early next year.
Thank you all who came, donated, purchased, volunteered and enjoyed our fayre. Well done Crown!
Tomorrow is flu day at Crown. The process is very well organised by the school nursing team.
