THANK YOU to all of our sponsors, donors and volunteers who helped in such a practical way on Wednesday 06 June as we staged THE Fete!
Working, Playing and Succeeding TOGETHER!
Indeed, the whole Waringstown Primary School community really did come together on Wednesday evening. It was a delight to see all ages mingling in the grounds and enjoying the feast of activities arranged by the staff. Mrs McCracken and Mrs Parker must be singled out because of their outstanding efforts over many weeks behind the scenes as they manage the fete and all of its practical outworking. Well done ladies! Thank you to the entire staff team for your work and continued unstinting support!
We must say a huge and sincere thank you to all our sponsors who donated many gifts to the auction and raffle and also to the many parents who helped to man a stall. There were parents who stayed behind too to help with the grand tidy up and this was much appreciated. It meant that the school opened on Thursday in a very fine state thanks to the much appreciated work on Wednesday evening! I am delighted to be able to inform you that the grand total of
was raised for school funds. This year’s figure completely dwarfs last year’s total of £8,500. The money is being set aside to purchase equipment and resources for your children. In this age of austerity and cuts to School Budgets and School Services we value your continued support even more! As principal I cannot tell you how much it pleases me to see the whole school, indeed village community, coming together to support our children in such a practical way!
Your generosity will make a HUGE difference in the life of ALL the children in Waringstown Primary School.
