Farsley Farfield Primary School

Another lucky Camp-Over day (and night, and morning…)

Our brilliant PTA and an expanding group of fabulous volunteers put on another wonderful Camp-Over weekend and we were, once again, lucky with the weather. Whether camping or day visitors, everyone seemed to have a great, relaxed time and the children played and played and played.

We were well entertained by the Farsley Singers, Sebastopher (inc our own very talented Mr Sharp), Elaine and her sheepdogs and by Matthew Tiffany: juggler extraordinaire! The food supplied by the kitchen was really tasty and the cake donations were overwhelming and delicious! The workers on stalls such as nails, face painting and henna tattoos did a great job. Many thanks too to Miss Purfield for her adventure trail in the infant Conservation Area which will also get used by Y1 this week.

There are too many volunteers to name and thank everyone individually and I would run the risk of omission and offence. Suffice to say I am very grateful to all the people who gave up their time to help make the Camp-Over such as success again. The Camp-Over has developed into a significant community event (the loud music late into the night was a party across the ring road and not us!) and it also raises valuable funds for school. The bottom line for this event is still being worked out but the PTA are already funding new playground markings in the juniors, the mobile PA we used on Saturday, new balance bikes in Foundation Stage and are making a £9,000 donation towards the new minibus that we are awaiting. Brilliant!

Some photos from the event are below:

Here are a selection of pictures from the ‘Photo Booth’:

    I have to say I feel so lucky to have my son at such an amazing school – I loved volunteering at camp over. It was so well organised and such a lot of fun. I hope lots of money was raised. I cannot wait till next year.

    Well done to all involved,

    A huge thank you to everyone involved for organising such a great event. We camped over for the first time this year and are looking forward to next year. I agree with an earlier comment that we are so fortunate to be a part of such a fantastic school which encourages a fabulous community spirit.
