Head over heels for school ju­bilee fair

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

AROUND 500 peo­ple flocked to Dave­nies School as they held their first ju­bilee fair to con­clude its 75th an­niver­sary cel­e­bra­tions.

The fair, or­gan­ised by par­ents and The Friends of Dave­nies, raised more than £6,000 to be shared be­tween The Teenage Can­cer Trust, Wa­ter Aid and the Friends of Dave­nies.

Held on the school fields and around the school, par­ents, pupils and the lo­cal com­mu­nity were able to take part in climb­ing, gym­nas­tic and street dance dis­plays and a pet­ting zoo.

Along with a bar­be­cue, Pimms and pros­ecco, vis­i­tors en­joyed mu­sic from the school’s hand bell group, jazz band and the re­cently formed ju­bilee choir made up of par­ents and staff.

Head­teacher Carl Rycroft said: “It was a great event and a good way of bring­ing the Dave­nies com­mu­nity to­gether. As a by-prod­uct we have raised money for char­ity and pro­vided a good op­por­tu­nity for the wider lo­cal com­mu­nity to en­joy an af­ter­noon at Dave­nies.”
