Somerfesto 2015 – come join the party!


somerfestoThe organising Committee is very happy to announce that the date for Somerfesto 2015 (our seventh annual party) has been decided by the school. This fun and extraordinary event will be held on :

Saturday 20th June

For those new in school, it is party day for the pupils, the parents, the teachers.  It’s a great opportunity to see your child in his/her daily surroundings.  As in previous years, there will be magic shows, bouncy castles, face painting, poney rides, sports activities, a Science Fair and an Art Corner organized by teachers and parents.

Of course, there will be food – the various European Food stands plus the hotdog, candy floss, popcorn stands, ice cream and candy stands…The second hand book stand is a great opportunity to pick up some great reads for the children.  Your child will receive the book donation form at school.

We are also pleased to be able to let you know that Somerfesto 2014 raised 9,174.55 euros. Full details of beneficiaries of all Somerfesto events can be found here

As the school continues to grow – the organisation of Somerfesto becomes a bigger task – and in order to ensure the success of the event – the Committee NEEDS YOUR PARTICIPATION.

Some of the stands/activities this year will be decentralised – including all the Food Stands.  We need volunteers to propose, co-ordinate and be responsible for ensuring their stand has adequate supervision and volunteers.  The committee will ensure that all infrastructures (tables, tents, electricity etc…) are provided.

We would be very happy to have your (parents, pupils, teachers) suggestions/ideas and proposals for stands/activities/games that YOU would like to organise and be responsible for – every support will be given.

We are planning to organise a disco for P5, S1, S2, S3 pupils in the evening of Somerfesto and a Jazz Café will run at the same time for parents. 

If you would like to commit to being involved in the central organisation – the meetings have already started and take place each Tuesday from 12h30 to 14h00.

If you want to be responsible for a stand – (you don’t have to attend the meetings J) – we would like to hear from you as early as possible.

We have set up a new email account and hope that many of you will be contacting us: 

Please remember: Somerfesto is OUR event.  It can only be as successful as the voluntary input that everyone puts in.  We know that if each parent attending was ready to volunteer one hour of their time everything would run very smoothly.
