This year’s Winter Wonderland is fast approaching

Dear parents,

It’s the time of the year where the SPA rally together to create another festive-filled Winter Wonderland fete for the whole family to enjoy.

On Saturday 19th November, 10am–2pm, we’d love for you to join us as we transform the newly finished grounds into a haven of fun games, treasured gifts to buy, and delicious food and drink.

We have something for everyone, including our very own jolly Santa!

Jump aboard the Winter Wonderland Express

A popular delight for the children, the Winter Wonderland Express train is run by Santa’s loyal elves running its rails throughout the fete, reaching its destination at Santa’s Grotto just in time for a magical storytime. There are several train rides throughout the day, please purchase your child’s slot in advance by returning booking slips to the school office.

Shh, find mum and dad the perfect gift in our Secret Present Room

The Secret Present Room is a wonderous room that only children can enter filled with presents to crowd your Christmas Tree. Children can buy Christmas gifts priced 20p, 50p and £1, and are quickly wrapped by Elves out of sight from parents and friends. You’ll have to wait until Christmas day to find out what’s inside.

Festive games, activities and stalls

From face painting to handmade crafts and preloved toys there are plenty of activities and gifts to buy at a selection of stalls. Keen browsers should arrive early as to not miss out!

Warm your cockles with fresh food and drink

It wouldn’t be Christmas without winter warmers and minced pies. We aim not to disappoint. There will be plenty of freshly baked cakes, pastries and snacks, winter dishes, jams and preserves, teas, non-alcoholic mulled wine, and our favourite hot dog BBQ.

Win a holiday hamper in our Christmas raffle

We have indulgent holiday hampers for his, her, and the children available to win on the day. Purchase raffle tickets at the fete for your chance to win.

We’re on the lookout for Santa’s little helpers

Winter Wonderland is one of our flagship fundraising events and is a testament to the continued support from parents, grandparents and friends of the school. If you’re a star baker, a knit whizz, chutney charmer or a homemade maverick and would like to create and donate to our homemade Christmas stall, or alternatively, would like to donate time to help run a stall or an activity, please get in touch via the school. We were amazed by your talents last year!

We also welcome gift donations for the Secret Present Room and nearly new school uniform for our Secondhand uniform stall. Please drop off items in good condition and ready for a new home to the school office. Our storage facilities are limited so please bring in larger items closer to the time.

Thank you to everyone who has already offered their services and to those that made last year a success. We hope to make this year’s Winter Wonderland a magical affair for everyone.

Winter wishes,
