Sun and Fun All The Way

Glorious sunshine helped to produce one of the most successful Spring Fairs at Hethersett Junior School for many years. 

The crowds turned out for the school’s first fair since changing its status from a Middle to Junior school last September. 

Over the years the weather has often been a problem with hot chocolate more in evidence than cold ice cream. On Saturday it was a different story, however, with inside refreshments doing a roaring trade as people sheltered from the heat rather than the cold and rain. 

The Spring Fair is the Parent Teacher Association’s main fundraising event of the year and proceeds this year will go towards improving the school’s outdoor play areas. In recent months the PTA has helped to pay for the re-surfacing and re-marking of the front playground and the replacement of benches. Now plans include adding larger apparatus and increasing the number of activities children can join in at play times. 

“I would like to thank the PTA for all their efforts on behalf of the school, both in providing equipment and ensuring the success of the Spring Fair,” said Head Teacher Andy Whittle. 

The day included a football demonstration from Hethersett Athletic Football Club, a special Stars in Their Eyes session for pupils, tag rugby and Kung Fu demonstrations and a raffle and auction of promises. The school steel band also performed at regular intervals throughout the event. One of the biggest attractions of the day was a climbing wall in the playground sponsored by Wimpey Homes.
