Food Stalls for Fair
Do you have a food stall or would you like to help us run a school food stall at the fair?
We would love to hear from anyone who has a food stall they would like to run at our fair which is being held on Saturday 1 April 2022. If you are interested, or if you know of anyone who may be, please complete the form or contact one of the following by next Wednesday 15th Feb:
Class Stalls & Donations
We are asking each class to be responsible for a stall. At the moment the class stalls are being finalised, then we will be asking for parents' help to run the stalls (the kids will be having too much fun).
We want everyone to be involved in this so we will keep you updated in the coming months on what we’re doing and how you can help. We are going to be having donation drives on a regular basis and asking you to bring in things such as goods we can sell on our trash & treasure stall, crafts, plants, 2nd handbooks, lollies, cakes, etc. We’ll let you know what and when we need it.
If we all do this together then our St Ambrose Fair will be a huge success for our kids and a great fun day.
