Monday 17th March – Friday 21st March 2014

Snippets from Chard School History: 

Advertisement for the school in 1828 – “The School House is situated in the most salubrious part of Chard and is very commodious.  The School Room is spacious and healthy, to which a playground is attached and enclosed so as to prevent communication with the town.  Mr Fayrer’s (Headmaster) pupils have all the domestic comforts of the Family.”

Message from the Friends: 

Our Friday coffee mornings are continuing to prove popular with Mum’s and Dad’s on these cold foggy days.  Please come along at drop off on Friday mornings.   

The sign-up sheets are on the Notice Board and in the Infants cloakroom for next Saturday’s Easter Fair which will be held 2 – 4 pm in the Chapel.  We are planning fun craft activities, an Easter Egg hunt/quiz, a cartoon show featuring a famous bunny, various Easter-related games and a “Best Decorated Easter Bonnet” competition.  Entry will be £5 per child which will include all activities and refreshments plus free tea and coffee for parents.  We would love parents to stay and join in the fun on the day – a few helpers will be needed for the activities – and any contribution to cakes, gratefully received!  Please bring along friends and relatives. 

Currently we are not planning to hold the annual Duck Race as our normal venue won’t be available.  We plan to hold another event in its place that will bring everyone together.  Watch this space.
