Fun in the rain at school fete

A SOAPY water slide was among the attractions at the summer fete at Trinity Primary School in Henley.

A SOAPY water slide was among the attractions at the summer fete at Trinity Primary School in Henley.

Despite grey skies and the occasional downpour, children were queuing up to slide down the plastic sheet and play in the foam.

The afternoon also included a hula-hoop display and dancing by Steph’s Divas and Dudes. For the first time pupils set up stalls as part of a business competition.

Some sold home-made cakes and milkshakes while others charged money to soak teachers.

There was a cake-baking contest won by Caitlin Swinburn and Angus Carle, both 10, of Western Road, Henley. They made a sponge cake topped with Skittles representing the school’s four houses and surrounded by chunks of Kit-Kat.



Anne Irving, 10, of Manor Road, and Anna D’Souza, nine, of Queen Street, won the Key Stage 2 art competition while six-year-old Florence Rait, from Middle Assendon, came first in Key Stage 1. The fete was organised by Friends of Trinity School and raised more than £2,000 for new playground equipment.

Organiser Steph Maxwell said: “The children said it was the most fun they’ve had in ages. The size of the attendance was briliant.”
