School Summer Festival Update

Jul 31, 2018 | Village News


We are delighted to now report that we can confirm our fundraising total at £9100! Simply amazing! We are so grateful. More than half of that was generated by local companies advertising, sponsoring and donating various things, so we are immensely grateful to all, and to everybody who was involved. Of course, we are also thankful to Cirque Normandie for their contribution throughout the week. It was an absolute treat working with them and everybody enjoyed their truly spectacular performances.  We can assure you that all of the funds raised are urgently needed to keep our amazing village school up to the standard of other larger schools with greater funding resource. We will continue to develop the outside areas of the school which most urgently need attention, and enhance the learning experiences of all of our children through extra-curricular activities, whilst also providing vital every day resources and materials to meet their basic needs.


The Summer Festival kicked off in traditional style with the school’s children all parading from the Newpound Lane to the Green. The May King, Liam, and May Queen, Phoebe making excellent speeches about their time at Wisborough Green Primary School. Supported by Annabelle, Fizz, Lily and Lucy B, the procession set the scene for the traditional Maypole dancing display, with a very modern twist! Delighting the crowds to the music from The Greatest Showman, the Maypole Club put on a magical display for all before inviting parents to join in the fun. Maypole Club also appeared at the Billingshurst Show a week later to repeat their performance, and impress the crowds there too. With superb live music from the JukeBox 6, supported by our fantastic sound support team of Jake & Ben Media, rounding off a day of circus fun, including a Young Circus Poster Designer Competition, our Circus Fun Obstacle Races and of course Cirque Normandie – it truly was a day to remember.

We hope to see everyone next year, and also at our Bonfire Night event, Friday 2nd November.
