Dads and Kids Campout – Saturday 13th May

One of the most popular events on the school calendar…the kids…with Dads….camping. Sounds like a perfect evening out for the Mums!!!!

Details of this event will follow later, but for now, you Dads need to start thinking about tents, mattresses, sleeping bags, torches and how you will cook the perfect bacon sarnie for the kids in the morning.

  • Summer Fair – Saturday 10th June, 11am-4pm

The kids favourite…the Summer Fair. This year the theme is ‘Fun in the Sun’. Over the next few weeks, we will be letting you know what you can expect from this year’s ‘Fun in the Sun’ day. For now, we can tell you that there will be a lovely array of shopping vendors for you to browse, food and beverage vendors to whet your appetite and loads of activities and games to keep the children busy.

We will also continue the tradition of providing entertainment using our very own talented stars from across the school and holding a big raffle with amazing prizes to be won. And…as with last year, we will hold a ‘Donation Day’ for you to send in books and prizes for the Tombola. Look out for further information on these.

You will also be sent a letter, accompanied by raffle tickets, asking for your help in selling raffle tickets, as well as forms to order entrance wristbands for the day.

The charities we help will also be in attendance, so stop by their stalls, say hello and learn about the valuable work supporting vulnerable families which our funds are supporting this year.

As always though, we can’t bring big events like this to the school without your help. If you can volunteer for even an hour on the day, please email us on Any time you can give would be very much appreciated.

Finally, we would also love to hear from the parents of NAIS who have their own companies or businesses and would like to bring them to the Summer Fair. It would be amazing for all to see the diversity of businesses that our school has to offer


Events from our parents…

(these events are not run by the Community Group, but are events which NAIS parents are involved in and would like to invite other parents to attend.….)
