NESSSS Christmas Fayre – 'Another Chance To Turn Things Round'

This powerful description of the work at North East Surrey Short Stay School was certainly evident when I received a real Xmas welcome from Nigel, Chair of the Management Committee; Michelle, Headteacher; Claire, Head of KS3 and Kara, Creative Arts Teacher, to the exciting Christmas Fayre at Stanwell New Road! The pupils had decided that all proceeds would go to a special charity – Shooting Star Chase, so everyone was keen to help – just look what the High Sheriff got!

Andrew (above) found it difficult to sell the wonderful wooden bowl he had skilfully made, under the expert tuition of craftsman volunteer, but it was all for a great cause!

And what a brilliant bag which Kasey (above) had expertly finished with my own name – the stag was just like the one at the University of Surrey. Kara (above) was justifiably proud of all of the pupils who had worked together to make the beautiful Xmas gifts on sale. That’s my Xmas shopping done!
