And so, the day we had all been waiting for arrived. The morning session was spent with students from all four countries working together to ensure their marketing and publicity was finished and looking good. Then began the huge task of getting the hall ready for the Fair. Bunting and flags were put up, a stage was constructed in the outdoor space and the gym was tidied ready for the Fairground Games and Silent Disco. Students began decorating their stalls and setting out their wares in preparation for the afternoon session.
Finally, all was ready and the doors opened at 2pm. Business was brisk from the very beginning with many teachers bringing their classes to the Fair. Students were kept very busy, selling everything from cakes and jewellery, an environmental smoothie-making bike to jam making, to crafts and drinks, through to hair styling, nail painting and fun stalls with prizes to be won. The atmosphere was vibrant and electric - such a buzz of activity with students from all four nations working together. Look out for our Gallery (coming soon) full of pictures.
Altogether, the total profit from the afternoon was almost £1300, with over £230 going to Bodropia's chosen charity, The Hideout. There were over 40 businesses running, involving over 140 students. Well done everyone!!
