Summer Fair 2018
Due to the ongoing school expansion building works we are unable to get vehicles on to the school field. This makes it almost impossible to run our usual full-scale Summer Fair.
As a result, we are planning an Autumn Fair in October to coincide with the official opening of the new school block. The date will be confirmed soon.
However, we have been invited to join with Woodcote High for their Summer Fair on Saturday, 14 July 2018. We will be hosting a few stalls so we can keep raising money to equip the Learning Resource Centre in the new building - a target of £10,000.
Please support both our Woocote joint-venture and our Autumn Fair. Remember, we are raising funds to buy those extras which make Smitham such a great place for our children to Learn - Believe - Achieve!
The main part of the scheme is a two-storey block located between the car park and the nursery/reception classrooms. Additionally, a new single-storey block will be built next to the pond (opposite class 3J). This will be the breakfast and after-school clubs' new home and will feature a kitchen and toilets making it useable for events on the school field! According to the plans lodged with Croydon Council, the outdoor classroom (behind the pond on the school field) is to be removed, but this is yet to be confirmed by the school.
The main block will house nine classrooms, a hall, a Learning Resource Centre (LRC) and a nursery room. The PTA have been asked to raise money to furnish and equip the LRC - the Education Authority will only be furnishing the new classrooms with the basics.
We have been asked to raise £10,000 by September 2018 when the new block will open and the school becomes three-form entry.
