Annual Easter Fair at Roselands

Saturday 25th March saw families, friends and the local community enjoying the school’s annual Easter Fair where the dedication and organisation of the Friends of Roselands was rewarded with a stunning profit of over £3500. Many visit this annual event who came to the school years ago, often over two generations. A popular feature of our annual fair is the food cooked and served by our team of kitchen staff – past and present cooks working together. Money raised helps to pay for many items which enrich the broad and varied school curriculum for all. It also supports the funding of transport for regular trips and outings related to work in the school.

Our Deputy mayor visited to judge the miniature gardens created by children of all ages. The theme reflected the school’s support for the ‘Year of the Environment’. The winners then took their Easter egg prizes and joined the deputy mayor amongst the daffodils in the school grounds.
