 Dear Parents / Carers,

 We are just two weeks away from one of our biggest fund raising events of the year. This year’s Summer Fayre will take place on the afternoon of Sports Day. Start the day by joining us for breakfast at our refreshment tent. We will be serving pastries, cookies and hot drinks. We also have our BBQ (details of how to pre-order will be sent out) and family picnic at lunchtime. The refreshments tent will be open all day for you to purchase drinks and snacks.

 Grand Draw Tickets

 Each child has been given one book of raffle tickets to sell but sadly we have had very few stubs returned to school. Please could you check your child’s school bag.  If you require more raffle tickets they are available from reception.


Do you have a Gazebo you could let us use to cover one of our summer fayre stalls? If so please contact us via email or via our facebook page @whiteknightspca or leave your details at the school office and we can let you know when to bring it in.

Call for volunteers to help with the fayre: Can you spare an hour to help with any of the following?

  •  Afternoon before the fayre (Thurs 13th):        4:30 – 5:30pm             putting up a marquee
  • Morning of the fayre before school:                8:00 – 9:00am             setting up tables
  • Day of the fayre:                                             12 noon – 1pm            help on a stall

                                                                                   1:00 – 2:00pm             help on a stall

                                                                                   3:30 – 4:30pm             clear-up

If so please get in touch. 

Request for cuddly toys !  Do you have any unwanted cuddly toys?  They must be clean and in the sort of condition you would be happy to buy yourself and take home.  If so, please bring them to the school office on any day and we will happily use them for our popular teddy adoption stall.
