Slade School Fete is coming up....

I'm being threatened, er I mean encouraged to tell you all about the Slade School Summer Fete so here goes. You just can't say no to these active PTA members you know, especially when it's your daughter's old school. So you may as well just give in! Any other summer fetes? Just let Tonbridge Blog know and I'll do my best to include them. Just don't ask me for any of my bottles of malt whiskey or real ales for the tombola that's all!

Slade Primary School PTA - Summer Fête

Saturday 25th June – to

Slade Primary School, Tonbridge, TN9 1HR

This year our Fête will have a Medieval Fair theme with an archery demonstration by our special guest John Cavanagh (see more below) plus opportunities to try your hand at archery, enter our Medieval Fancy Dress competition and to see mock-fighting from Men-at-Arms in full armour!

There will also be a bumper raffle, bouncy castle, face painting, hair plaiting, bottle tombola, assault course, BBQ, refreshments and Pimms and strawberries. Entertainment will include a martial arts demonstration, Djembe drumming from Year 4 students and music from the school choir and orchestra.   We will also be dedicating a bench in the memory of former school caretaker Mr Mike McKee who sadly passed away last year.  The Fête will be rounded-off with the traditional tug-of-war in the central arena.

Meet Paralympic Archery gold medallist John Cavanagh!

The PTA are delighted that Paralympic Archery Gold Medallist John Cavanagh has agreed to join us to give a demonstration of his extraordinary skills. 
John will be available throughout the Fete to display his medals, sign autographs and talk about his experiences of competing in Athens and Beijing and his hopes for the London 2012 Paralympic Games.  See www.london2012.com/paralympic-archery  to read more about John.

The fete is open to all the public and will run from to .
