Dwight Parent Association Newsletter

Dear Parents,


We would love to invite you to the Dwight School Winter Fair on Thursday, 14th December from 2.00pm to 4.30pm in the Lower School.


What is the Winter Fair
This is a Dwight Parents Association (DPA) event run by Lower School parents, therefore we are reliant on parent support to make this a wonderful event for our children.


It will be an afternoon of food and fun with a bouncy castle, a hoola-hoop competition, games such as name the bear and hook a bauble. We will have hot drinks, such as tea, coffee and hot chocolate that you can enjoy with a cookie that you son/daughter decorated, or a treat from the cake stall. We will have nail painting, fun questionnaires, a glitter tattoo stall, second-hand toys and a game and book stall. Not forgetting our second-hand uniform stall, the fudge games lady, a selection of international finger food, mulled wine, mince pies, the Christmas lights, football and basketball games and the selection of wonderful hampers to be won!!! Even Santa will be visiting us!!


Ticket and Token Purchase
You can book online on via your son/daughter's Wisepay account. For £2.00 you get an entrance ticket, a raffle ticket and four tokens worth 50p each, please note children aged three years and over will need a ticket to enter.  If you wish to purchase additional tokens, please add additional tickets at the WisePay checkout. These are sold in bundles of 4 for £2 including a raffle ticket. The teachers will then hand out the tokens and tickets on the day of the fair. Tokens and Raffle tickets can also be purchased on the day.
