Year 7 Sustainable Gifts Christmas Fayre

December 11, 2014

Latest News

On Wednesday 10th December, the Year 7 Sustainable Gifts event took place – and it didn’t disappoint! Three months of hard work from the Year 7 students paid off in an event full of outstanding gifts, wonderfully presented stalls, and very enthusiastic (and persuasive) Year 7 traders. As in previous years, the Christmas Fayre was very well attended.

We are very pleased to announce that this year group took a staggering £1840 in the one hour event. Three stalls took over £100 each, with one making close to £230! These achievements smash all of the records from the previous three years of running this event. This is a phenomenal achievement and testament to the excellent work ethic of this year group. Minus the deductions for change and the initial investment, approximately £1600 will be donated to a local charity of the year group’s choosing. This process will take place after Christmas.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who attended last night; the parents for their support (and hard work!); the staff (especially the Year 7 tutors and the PD team who have worked tirelessly) and, of course, the fantastic Year 7 students.

Press coverage will appear soon in the Evening Herald, the Plympton, Plymstock and Ivybridge News and, finally, the Plympton Podcast (follow on Facebook/Plympton Podcast or

Finally, we would like to wish all of our Year 7 families a very Merry Christmas and a peaceful New Year.

The Year 7 Team.
