Dothill Primary School

Summer Fayre - 2:30pm-4:00pm

The Friends of Dothill School are delighted to invite you to our forthcoming Summer Fayre on Friday 28th June (2:30pm - 4:00pm)!

At the fayre each class will be running a games stall including “Splat the Rat”, “Shoot the Poop”, Lucky Dip, Archery, “Befriend a Bear” and much, much more. The Friends will also be running stalls including Krispy Kreme doughnuts, “Barrow of Booze” and “Break the Safe”, we are also aiming to offer a “free to do” area of garden games.

All the activities and stalls will be paid for using a token system. Families can buy tokens (plastic round discs) for 50p per token from the ‘bank’ to make playing and buying a quicker process at each stall. Please note that some stalls will be 2 or more tokens a go. Please bring cash as we currently have no card facilities at the banks or on the stalls, we are working on this. On the day of the fayre each child will be given a slip which includes a ‘free go’ worth 1 token.

Prizes will be up for grabs at the majority of stalls. If players win a game, they will be given a wooden Dothill star which will be transferable at the prize stall. There will be plenty of 1-star token prizes, but also some larger items for 2, 3- or 4-star tokens for winners to pick from.

On the day parents/carers are allowed to collect their children from classroom’s from 2:30pm onwards. We are aware not all families are able to collect earlier, so we will hold back some prizes and activities until after 3:15pm. 

There is a Mufti Day on Friday 21st June. The children are invited to come to school in non-uniform and we ask that the children bring in a donation for the fayre of either: 

  • bottle of wine or alcohol, 
  • £2 

Please can all donations be handed in at the classroom door on arrival that morning. The money collected will be used to purchase prizes. 

As in previous years we would like to offer families the opportunity to buy bundles of tokens in advance of the fayre. This will take place on the playground at drop off/pick up. We will also be aiming to offer two ‘banks’ on the day during the fayre. Please note, this is all dependent on the support of enough volunteers. We are hoping to offer a “pay it forward” system for tokens this year. This will give any families who wish to do so the opportunity to donate any purchased tokens to The Friends so that our wider school community is supported to assist inclusivity for all.

In order for the school fayres to run we require help from parents/carers. We are grateful for any help; these events cannot take place without your support. In addition to help on the day of the fayre we also require help with organising the donations received on the morning of mufti day in preparation for the fayre. If you can help (even just for a little while) please complete this Google form by Friday 31st May.

Funds raised on the day will be put towards the school for the enrichment of all children specifically offering experiences, opportunities, trips and resources. 

We hope it is going to be a lovely afternoon and that you will all have a great time! Please remember your friends and extended family are more than welcome to join you on the day.

Many thanks in anticipation of your support, 

The Friends of Dothill School
