Year 7 Sustainable Gifts Fair

November 21, 2013



Since September, Year 7 students have been working hard on creating sustainable Christmas gifts that could be sold at a real Christmas Fair. All of the students have created separate businesses and everyone has taken on a specific role. The school has invested £1 in each student and they have pooled their money in an attempt to come up with the best products available.

We would like to invite you to the Christmas Fair where you will have the opportunity to see the gifts your child and others have created and to purchase as much (or as little!) as you want. The business with the most sales will win a prize as will the best team workers. There are also tutor group prizes available. All profits will go to a nominated charity once their £1 has been repaid.

Last year, this was a huge success with hundreds of adults visiting the Year 7 Christmas Fair. Over £1000 was raised for charity, with many students and parents commenting that this was one of the highlights of the school year.

In terms of practicalities, all students are required to take part and to support the event. All students will need to turn up at the main hall for 4.30 p.m., in order to set up for the start at 5.30 p.m. I’m aware that this is quite soon after the final bell so we will be offering the chance for students to stay behind after school to watch a Christmas DVD in the lecture theatre until the main hall is ready.

Finally, could I also make a plea to bring as much change as possible as we may not have enough money floats for 210 students!

Your support in this event is invaluable and we look forward to seeing you.
