Last Friday, 30th June, we held our annual summer fair in the gorgeous sunshine of the current heat wave. Pupils and parents enjoyed many stalls and attractions, many of which the children themselves were running to raise money for projects in school. The Deputy Mayor of Ferndown, Councillor Mrs Jean Read, officially opened the fair and spent time talking to the pupils and visiting stalls. We were also entertained by the Samba Band, Parley First School Choir and the year 5 girls who were winners of “Ferndown’s Got Talent” last term. A fantastic day was had by all and we raised over £1200. Many thanks go to the pupils for donating items for the fair and to parents and staff for giving up their time to set up and run the stalls.
