Contributing to FHHS

There are 3 events currently being planned for the autumn term and we very much hope you will be willing to get involved in these.

(1) Bake 'n' Take Monday 22nd October at 3 p.m.
A Bake 'n' Take only works if people are willing to provide home baking for the event and if others are willing to come along between 3 and 4 p.m. on that date to buy the home baking! We hope you will be kind enough to provide lots of buns, cakes and home made biscuits for us and that you will remember to send your children with some money to buy things on that day! It's even better if you can call in and buy as well! We serve hot drinks and squash at this event.

(2) Bag2School Recycling Day Friday 16th November 9 a.m.
This event involves clearing out your wardrobes in preparation for Christmas! You receive a bag about a couple of weeks before the collection date and bring in all your old clothes, bedding, curtains, shoes, bags and belts to school on the morning of 16th November. This is collected by a company who pay us money according to the weight of the bags. How easy is that? You get a good clear-out and the school receives money for it!

(3) Christmas Fayre Friday 7th December 3-5 p.m.

There are two ways you can support this event. One is to provide things for us before the date (eg home baking, homemade chutneys, preserves, pickled onions etc.) to sell or you could contribute luxury items for our Hamper Competitions (giving us food, drink or toiletries to go into hampers... we then run a competition to guess the overall value of the hamper in order to win it!) We are running a craft stall, so any home made cards or knitted items or things like that can be donated to sell. The other thing you could contribute are wrapped sweets or chocolates for us to sell with the last of the mugs from last year!

The second way you can support the event is to come along to the Fayre and join in the fun! We will be running a number of games, competitions and stalls immediately after school and if everyone just stayed for a little while and spent a little money, it's surprising how this soon adds up! Hot and cold drinks will be served and hopefully we will have a wide range of fun activities on offer. Maybe you will find some Christmas presents or stocking fillers!

If you have any questions about these events or would like more information, please do contact me at school.
