Fantastic Fun at the Easter Fair

There was real excitement in the final week of term at the BSA Easter Fair. After missing 3 Easter Fairs because of the pandemic, the Beckley School Association were finally able to run their first main event after the relaxation of the COVID restrictions – much to the thrill and delight of pupils, staff and parents. It was really lovely to see the school as a whole community once again, enjoying the various stalls and activities at the fair. Children loved being able to move around and decide what to spend their money on for the first part of the afternoon, before the parents joined them later. Highlights were the hoopla stall, hook a duck, the Easter Egg raffle and the fantastic Easter Egg hunt in the school orchard. Parents joined the fair for the final hour and enjoyed the amazing cakes on offer, with a nice cuppa! The event was the first time for two years that parents of Reception, years 1 and 2 could enjoy with parents from across the whole school community. It was also a great opportunity for them to see an example of the wonderful work that the BSA do. Mr Thurston said, ‘It was fantastic to see the school as a whole community again – we have missed it so much! I’m so grateful to the army of parents who have worked hard to organise and run the Easter Fair, and it was brilliant to see so many new parents getting involved with the BSA too!’
