Splash the teacher game helps school raise £800

BOUNCY castles, fairground games and splash the teacher were among the attractions at the summer fair at Badgemore Primary School in Henley.

Dozens of families attended the event at the Hop Gardens school. There were stalls with traditional games and a miniature fairground train ride in the car park.

Several govenors and teachers, including headteacher Jacky Steele, volunteered to sit in a chair in the playground while pupils threw wet sponges at them.

Food and drink were available and Kevin Jacobs, chairman of the governors, manned the barbeue.

A raffle had prizes donated by local businesses and organisations including Hobbs of Henley and the River & Rowing Museum.



The fair, which was run by the Friends of Badgemore School, raised more than £800 towards new playground markings.

Organiser Bev Calvert said: “It was a brilliant day and to make a profit like that is fantastic for such a small school.

“Most of the school came along as well as some children from outside too. It’s nice to see new faces and I think a lot of those were pupils who will be starting at the school next year.”
