Summer Term 2019 Activities

FAB event dates for your diaries for the Summer Term

                                           

On Saturday 18th May Balfour will be participating in the Brighton Artists Open House festival. The school will be showcasing art created by our children across both sites. For more information on the festival, check out their website: https://aoh.org.uk

Later on in the Summer term on Saturday 6th July is our annual Summer Fair – a massive fundraiser for FAB. We have lots of exciting activities, stalls, food and drinks for the whole family to enjoy. These events can’t be held without the significant help of our school community, so if you can help in the run up, set up, during the event or clearing away, make a note in your diary and the online sign up links will be available soon.

Spring Term Activities

We’re pleased to tell you about the Spring activities that FAB are involved in for this term.

First is the return of the Scholastic Book Fair from Friday 1st March until Thursday 7th March. As per previous events, it will be held at the KS2 site by the Year 6 Base. Last time we ran the fair, we took over £800 which resulted in £87 worth of books for the school. So come down and have a look at the range of discounted books for sale.

If you can spare the time to help volunteer at the book fair please sign up by following this link volunteersignup.org/PXDRK

Also this term, is our Spring Quiz Night on Friday 15th March raising funds to support Science Week later in the year.

Annual Easter Egg Hunt will be held after school on Friday 29th March. Tickets for both these events can be bought online – check out the events posts on this site.

Christmas Fair update

Oh the weather tomorrow is frightful, but the fair will still be delightful….
So yes light rain expected tomorrow afternoon – but it’s the winds that are causing us hassle!! We can now ensure you the the whole fair will be inside in the warm!! I’m not sure how we have managed it… but it should all be fine! Sadly there will be no Christmas karaoke as something had to go… we will still have everything else, hot food, a full bar, candy floss and all the stalls. It maybe be slightly squishy in places but please come and help us raise money for the school!!
