Please join us this Saturday, 11th June, between 1pm and 4pm in the school playground for our summer party. Here’s all you need to know:
What to expect?
- Bake sale/ tuck shop & ice lolly stand
- Games (with prizes!) and a quiz
- Beat the Goalie tournament
- Storytelling tent
- Playground project display & seed planting
- Stalls with second hand uniforms, plant swap, and Bruntsfield Superheroes book pre-orders and posters
- Choir performance
What’s happening when?
The choir will perform at 1:15pm in front of the main school entrance. Beat the Goalie will take place in the lower left playground, with qualifiers any time between 1-3pm and the finals starting from 3pm. Everything else will run throughout the whole afternoon.
What to bring?
- Cash! With the exception of the ice lolly stand, everything will be cash only.
- An empty yoghurt or jelly pot for the seed planting.
- A camera or phone for the photo booth.
- Donations for the bake sale (home made or store bought is fine).
- Soft drinks will be available to buy, but no teas or coffees as we don’t have access to the kitchen, so if you’d like a hot drink bring one with you.
Donations for the bake sale and plant swap can be dropped off in the upper playground from 9:30am onwards, or you can bring them with you when you come.
How much does it cost?
Entry to the playground party is free, but there will be ‘pay what you can’ donation boxes. Some of the stalls such as the uniforms and plants are also donations based, while for others such as the food and games there will be a cost ranging from 50p for the games to £10 for the superheroes book poster.
What is the money going to?
The bake sale/ tuck shop is being run by the P6s to raise money for their year book. The quiz is being run by the school’s Rights Respecters group to raise money for Unicef, and the poster sale is to support the book project. The ice lolly stand is an external local vendor who is doing us a favour. All other donations and proceeds will be split between the playground improvement project and Dnipro Kids, a Scottish charity which supports Ukrainian orphans.
What about the weather?
The forecast for Saturday is a little patchy, but in Scotland we know how to party in the rain! Nearly everything is under cover so even if it is a little wet we’ll still go ahead. If it’s blowing a storm and we need to cancel, we will post a message on our PC website by 12 noon, so if you’re unsure please check here before you come https://bruntsfield.org/latest-news/
We hope to see as many of you on Saturday as possible!
