Have your say

Christmas was kicked off in style at Hook-with-Warsash Academy, writes headteacher Sara Willoughby.

We had a fabulous festive fair which was full of festive treats.

There was a fantastic range of delights to keep every Christmas shopper happy including children’s toys, books and a wine tombola.

And children even had the chance to actually meet the busy man himself – Father Christmas.

All visitors were kept entertained at the fair with a wonderful range of activities.

This included face painting, balloon modelling and cookie decorating.

There was even an opportunity for visitors to make their own Christmas decorations at the arts and crafts stall.

Little shoppers were given an extra hand to get themselves organised for Christmas with a special mums and dads present stall.

The stall had wrapping facilities provided so that all secrets can be kept under-wraps until the big day.

Refreshments were also on hand to motivate tired shoppers.

And some Christmas carols were sang by children from Year 2.

There was also a play area with a ball pit for children to play in.

The fair was an enormous success this year with a wonderful range of activities for everyone to enjoy.

Every year this event is organised by the PTFA and supported by helping parents and staff.

Funds raised from days such as these will allow the school to invest in quality resources for the pupils to enjoy.

We would like to say an enormous thank you to everyone involved in making the day such a success.
