The Christmas Market
This annual parent-led event provides a wonderful opportunity for us to welcome people into the school and showcase the incredible creative talents of the school community. Join us for a magical day of food, carols, storytelling, beautiful gifts, and lots of twinkling lights.
You can keep up to date with the event by following the dedicated Facebook page.
This event is the school’s largest fundraiser, bringing in over 2,000 people trough the gates. The Christmas Market Spending Group, made up of volunteers who meet once a year, are responsible for deciding how the proceeds are invested back into the school.
In previous years, these funds have financed a number of projects, including the Kindergarten Water Feature, digital cameras for school use, gymnastics equipment and the projects featured on the right. Last year’s most exciting purchase was a pottery kiln for use in the ceramics class. The kiln will be used to create fired glazed pottery and we look forward to seeing some inspirational creations in the near future.
Christmas Market Spending Group: Project Funding
Proceeds from our annual Christmas Market are used as a school community funding pot for appropriate uses.
These monies are intended for projects/items that will benefit school life and enhance the experience of the pupils, but are not classed as ‘essential’, core educational needs or general school maintenance/development.
As a subgroup of the PTA, the spending group consists of parent volunteers and a staff member who process applications which are encouraged from all in the school community.
Alternatively, you can pick up a form at the school office, where completed forms should also be handed back (or emailed).
Completed forms should include all necessary information (supplier, quotes, costs) along with any supporting details you feel is relevant to assist the group in making a funding decision.
