We thoroughly enjoyed Sunday’s event, we hope you did too. A huge thanks to all of our helpers and for the donations that made the Christmas Fair a roaring success. The Fair can only happen with the help and support of the whole College community. We are also grateful to the forty-five vendors and their festive wares that thrilled our shoppers.

“What Parents and Carers Need to Know about Disney+”
