Year 12 and the Christmas Fair

12 November 2014

The Christmas Fair is fast approaching and one of the Year 12 students, Hyun Jin Kim, 12P, who is on the organising committee tells us a bit more about what to expect and how you can help.

I am part of the CAS Leadership team and we are helping to manage and organise the upcoming Christmas Fair, along with the PTA.

We are doing our best to keep everything on track for this year’s Christmas Fair. Every single Year 12 student is involved in helping with the Christmas Fair and they are all trying to do their best to raise needed money for the ISF (Indochina Starfish Foundation) Charity. Year 12s at BISS Puxi have been working with ISF for several years, since 2009 and we are happy to be continuing this tradition this year. For more information about ISF, please visit: http://www.indochinastarfish.org/.

We have now finished with the planning for the Fair and so are looking for volunteers to help out on the day. We have been recruiting volunteers at lunchtimes this week and will keep doing it all week. Any students who would like to help out on the games or the bake sale on the day, please come and find us – the more help the better!

As well as the games and the Bake Sale, the CAS students are also organising the raffle draw this year and all proceeds from that will go to ISF. We are still looking for more raffle sponsors so if you have a business that would like to become a raffle sponsor, please get in touch! You can find the details in the link at the bottom of this page.

The Bake Sale was a great success last year and we hope that this year it will be even better! I am aware that there are some enthusiastic parents who are glad to provide us cupcakes and cakes and we want to say a big thank you to you all! A letter went out last Friday about the Fair and you can mark on that if you are interested in helping with the Bake Sale. Just be aware that any cakes donated should be nut-free as BISS is a nut-free school.

Finally, we are also running a second hand books and toy stall this year, so we will need some donations. I’m sure you all have some toys or books at home that are no longer used. Please donate them - we can make them meaningful again!

As well as all of this, there will be a lot more going on: a bouncy castle, lots of vendors to buy your Christmas presents from, food and drink stands and lots of games for children of all ages. I am most looking forward to the sponge the teacher game, the Korean Traditional Games and the music that will be performed by students!

We look forward to seeing you there!
