Enterprise Fete 2017

Each pupil in Burrator Class was handed ÂŁ5 at the start of the week and given the challenge of working as a team to generate a profit from their money at the school Enterprise Fete.  Teams had to present their ideas to their fellow pupils and persuade them that their idea was the best.  In the end, each group came up with a range of imaginative ways of generating income which included games, silent auctions, tombola, nail painting and transfer tattoos.  Pupils spent the week preparing their stalls, buying good and contacting local businesses asking for donations of prizes for the event.  Friends of St Mary’s (FOSMs) also supported the event with a variety of stalls and a bouncy castle.

Cake Sale

To raise money for FOSMs, the cake sales have continued this term as a way of raising additional money for school funds.

Christmas Extravaganza

Pupils from Burrator Class organised and ran a Christmas extravanganza this year. There were a number of stalls including ‘jolly jars’, lucky dip, cake decorating, Christmas gifts and bric a brac. In addition there were a number of games to play including guess the name of the teddy, North Pole treasure map, pin the antlers on Rudolf and a tombola. Refreshments were organised by FOSMs and our school choir provided entertainment for the occasion.

Easter Raffle

The Easter raffle was extremely popular this year, helping to raise money for St Mary’s. Many thanks to everyone who took part in the raffle and congratulations to the winners!

Christmas Fair

FOSMs organised and ran a very successful Christmas Fair in our new school hall. A number of stalls sold seasonal gifts, along with a performance from the school choir, Scholastic book fair, craft activities, refreshments and a visit from Santa in his grotto. The Christmas raffle was also a great success with a number of hampers being prepared for the event.
