Very helpful fayre. Met lots of parents and workers, and gave out lots of information. Bought a great keyring and chocolates from your pupils. They were very polite and sold their items very nicely.

A fabulous day. So glad to be a part of this day, and hope to continue a great relationship.

Lovely time at the fayre - the talk from the OT's was really interesting and had useful practical strategies. So lovely to see pupils grown up and engaging with me after many years. (Ex-employee)
