Christmas Fair Countdown!

We would love your help and there are so many ways to get involved:

  • Put the date in your diary (1st December!) and start telling all your family and friends.  Your child should have brought home a black and white fair poster with them today.  Can you encourage them to colour it in and then display it somewhere to help spread the word?
  • Volunteer to help on a stall. The more people we have helping, the more chance everyone has to enjoy the fair with their children. You can email us at or speak to your class rep.
  • Donate a raffle prize or a bottle of wine for the wine game. Please give any donations to us in the playground or to your class rep.
  • Approach your own contacts (hairdressers, beauticians etc.) who you think may be willing to donate a raffle prize.  The PA is a registered charity and we will leave copies of a letter explaining this at the School Office that you may wish to show to your contacts.
  • Have a clear out and donate any decent quality bric-a-brac.  There will be a collection box outside reception and one outside the office.  Remember we can’t sell anything dirty or broken.
  • Donate small gifts in the correct colour for the Rainbow Tombola. (See below for your colour).  Good ideas are items such as candles, bubble baths, chocolates and stationery items. Wilkinsons, Morrisons and the Pound Shop are all good places to look for cheap items. There will be a collection tray in each classroom and a prize for the class that collects the most!
  • Come along to our wrapping evening on Monday, 19th November, 7.30 pm to give Santa a hand with wrapping the gifts for his grotto.  He needs all the help he can get! If you can’t make the evening, but are willing to take some presents home to wrap then that would be much appreciated too.
  • Bake cakes or biscuits to sell on our ever-popular cake stall.  You can drop cakes off in the school hall from 2pm on Friday 30th November, or bring them along from 10am on Saturday 1st December.   Please remember NO NUTS and to list the ingredients used.
  • Come and help us set up between 2pm and 5pm on Friday 30th November and from 10 am on Saturday 1st December.  Any time you can spare would be fantastic!

Christmas Pictures for Waterstone’s Book Shop St Albans

Waterstones book shop in St Peter’s Street have asked if Camp children would like to provide pictures for their Christmas display. The shop will be adding a notice saying that the art comes from Camp School and they will be on display in the children’s book section and in the window.

Reception are doing them as a class topic, but if anyone else’s children would like to provide a picture, illustrated poem, story, piece of artwork, etc that can be stuck on a wall that would be lovely. The theme is Christmas and the brighter and more colourful the better. Also if you could print your child’s first name (for safety reasons, no surnames please) on the front that would be useful.

Tess, mum to Nellie in Y1, is planning on delivering them to the shop next week so if you could hand them to her in the playground by next Wednesday (30th), that would be great.

This a really lovely advert for the school and the more pictures we can get, the better (…the shop has promised to display every single one!).

Many thanks

The PA Team
