B Cador: December 2016
The Christmas festive season arrived at Wrenbury Primary School yesterday evening, when Santa was driven to school in style in Mr Jones' vintage car. Children and parents stood on the playground to watch Santa arrive and then the school's doors were opened to a lovely, friendly and fun evening of games, guesses, stalls and refreshments. We have to thank Santa for taking some time out of his busy schedule to spend the evening with us and make it a special night for so many of our youngsters!
It was wonderful to have so many of our children, parents and grandparents join us and also to see so many of our previous year's Year 6 (now Y7 and Y8) return for the evening. Whilst the aim of the Christmas Fair was a fundraising event, there was also a lovely social feel to the evening and it reaffirmed for me that this school IS a very special school at the heart of its community.
These events don't just happen! A lot of parental support through their very generous donations and attendance on the night, the preparatory work of FOWS (committee and parent volunteers) and the staff and children up to the event as well as the extra help on the night made our Christmas Fair a wonderful event. Every penny we raised goes a long way to supporting the work we do in school to benefit all our children.
Well done to the following winners.
Hamper winners: Jo Crolla-Parkhouse, David Hughes, Justina Evans, Cathie Ashley, the Midwinter family, Pete Thomas, Kathleen Reade, Kelly Western and Rachel Walker;
Charlotte May was closest in guessing the number of reindeer noses in the jar;
Nancy Caunce was closest to guessing Walter's birthday;
Lily Owen was closest in guessing the number of sweets on the Sweetie Tree;
Erica Taylor guessed the number of smarties on the Smartie cake
and finally Alfie Hughes scored a magnificent 55 on the snowman Nerf gun challenge.
So I am only left to say a very big THANK YOU to everyone who made our Christmas Fair a great success.
