Islington pupils put on fair to raise money for school trip
Everything from ice cream to nail-painting was on offer at a recent primary school fair organised by pupils.
The Year 6 students at St Mary’s Primary School, Fowler Road, Islington, raised almost �1,200 towards their residential school trip from selling treats to younger children, parents and visitors.
Year 6 teaching assistant, Kelly Sutton, said: “The kids said it was absolutely great fun. It brought the school community together and the young ones were mixing with the older children, seeing what stalls they might create.
“We had arts and crafts stalls and silly picture stalls – though, the most money came from ice cream – unsurprising given the weather.”
“They’d give Alan Sugar a run for his money; they should all be young apprentices!”
