All the Fun of the Christmas fair
On Friday 22nd November the school community gathered together to support the biggest fundraising event of the school calendar, raising nearly £2500.
Organised by the PTA the event was a great success in no small part due to the dedicated team of parents, led by Mrs Lord, who worked tirelessly on behalf of the school.
Local businesses showed great generosity, donating prizes for the raffle; parents responded brilliantly with tombola prizes and goods for the cake stall and students worked hard selling raffle tickets, preparing the Fijian food stall and helping the fair run smoothly.
The excellent fundraising total is testimony to the sense of teamwork and charity. Everyone who gave money, gifts and time lived out the school ethos and helped St Francis Xavier to start the Christmas season of events in style.
The next event in the seasonal calendar is the Christmas Concert on Monday 9th December. It is a great opportunity to celebrate the musical talents of our school community and join together, once again, to share the Christmas spirit.
Thank you to everyone for their support. We hope to see you at the concert.
