What a Night!
The lights sparkled and the crowds came!
Our Fabulous Christmas Fayre took place last night and it was an enormous success, being opened by the angelic voices of our Singing Club led by Gail Bater. Santa Claus arrived with his trusty reindeer to be greeted by lots of excited children and he looked very comfortable in his magnificent grotto. The Christmas Avenue leading into the school was truly magical and hosted a super variety of local businesses and crafts, from scarves and jewellery to log reindeers, paintings to honey and toiletries to books.
Having a winter barbecue was a welcome addition to the fayre and as usual the food was delicious. The hot dogs went down a treat and our thanks go to Dave and his wife for their support for the school.
Inside the school there was a lovely atmosphere, as people won tombola prizes, enjoyed mulled wine and mince pies, joined in with the crafts on offer and tried to guess names of teddies and ‘Where in the World Santa was’. Well done to Zach (Y2) and Henry (Y5) who guessed correctly and won the prizes.
The raffles offered wonderful prizes and a stunning Christmas Cake donated by the ‘Looby Loo Cake Company’.
As usual ‘The Friends of The Dassett’ provided an event which was second to none. We are so fortunate to have this dedicated group of parents who spent the whole day preparing the school, as well as many months beforehand organising the event. The funds raised are invaluable to the school and your children and so the final thanks goes to you all for coming along, braving the cold and wholeheartedly giving your support.
MERRY CHRISTMAS TO YOU ALL.
