Traditional school summer fetes

I like a good school fête. True, it’s been many years since I last went to one  (because it’s a bit odd to go to a school event as an adult without an accompanying child!) but I remember the excitement of preparing for a fête as a child, setting out a games stall with my best friends and knowing that the event marked the start of the long summer holidays!

Now, as an adult, I feel that same sense of excitement when I see banners going up outside the schools to advertise their summer fêtes. I’ve been to a couple of school fairs over the past few years (attending with friends who have children – my golden ticket!) and the tombola stalls are still there, raffle tickets are still being sold by the strip and children are still tending their ‘guess the number of sweets in the jar’ stalls. Not only do I enjoy the fiesta-like atmosphere of these events, but I like to support the community too and spend my money at the fair, knowing it will go to a good cause or the school itself.

This year I’ve contributed a raffle prize – the rainbow tutu below – to the local high school, and I’ve already heard stories of teen girls getting excited about winning it, so I hope it’ll help sell a few extra raffle tickets for the family support charity that the school is fundraising for! It’s just a shame that I can’t go to the event itself and enjoy a cup of orange squash and a mini-milk!
