Summer Fair 2019
This year's summer fair literally started with a bang! The Year One samba band got proceedings underway with a brilliant performance of `I can play the samba (oh no you can´t)`. They all played a solo that they had composed themselves and played the three rhythms together simultaneously, following samba signals for start, stop, swap and break.
The Year One´s were a hard act to follow, but the Year 4 ukulele orchestra played in two parts and sang ´Safari´ and finished with them singing a rousing version of La Bamba while accompanying themselves on the ukulele.
Not to be outdone by the lower school musicians, Year 5 played Salsa Verde and Hear That Train a Comin´. They memorized these two complicated pieces and played with their ´walking fingers´.
Following on from our fantastically talented musicians, Adam the Magic Man thrilled and enthralled the audience, both young and old, with a mix of tricks old and new. Stalls were abuzz with games and activities from darts to the lucky dip and glitter tattoos a plenty. Mr Holden showed off his football skills in the hugely popular Beat the Goalkeeper Shootout and the Year 7´s brought back their classic Beer Pong game. Polina in Year 4 had a lucky streak winning more than her fair share of prizes at the raffle and fun and games were had by all. A big thank you as usual to our EFC especially Mel on the bar and Ana on the cake stall.
All in all it was a very summery start to a very summery fair raising 1555€ for our chosen charity Hogar Betania. The proceeds raised will be put towards renovating the kitchen facilities at the hogar. Thank you for your help and support as usual.
