Sacred Heart School held their May Fair on Saturday afternoon at the school in Grey’s Hill and raised £3,000 towards renovation of their outdoor areas.
Snail racing, sweet, toy and bottle tombolas, a giant bouncy slide, face painting and beat the goalie were just some of the stalls and games for all the families to enjoy.
No burgers or hot dogs here at this truly international school – instead a huge world buffet of delicious foods from Poland, Hungary, India and Italy to choose from. The bar too had an extensive range of drinks to suit all including a pint of Brakspear best bitter from a keg that Brakspear had kindly donated to the school.
Children from the Farrell Flynn Irish Dancing Academy performed a routine during the afternoon. Many of the members of the academy go to Sacred Heart School.
Debbie Robinson from the PTA said, “The day just got so busy and was pretty much our most successful Mayfair ever! We have raised £3k which is fantastic and it is going towards a bigger plan of school ground renovation. We recently received £12k from Tescos bags for life for the Key Stage 2 area and this extra money will go towards the Key Stage 1 playground which needs re tarmacking and new play activities.”
