We are delighted to announce an International Food Fair as a fundraiser for Educate Together's annual One Day Together. Educate Together is our patron body and we are delighted to support the crucial work they do in supporting existing schools and establishing new ones around the country.
The Food Fair will take place in the PE Hall next Friday 6th October. Each family is asked to prepare a dish that is native to their home country. Each class will visit the fair and taste a selection of the dishes on offer. A cover charge of €3 per child (€5 per family) will be charged at the door, giving them access to a World of Flavour!
We need your help! We will need people to supervise and assist at the tables on the day. The Food Fair will open from 10.30-1.30 for children from the various classes to visit. If you would be available to help out with this on the day, please fill out the form here. Without your help, exciting events like this would not be possible!
Please send an empty lunchbox to school with your child on the day, as well as their usual school lunch. This will make it easier for your child to collect a sample of the foods on offer. It is also very important that you make your child aware of any allergies that they may have, so that they can avoid foods that contain those allergens.
Families who contribute dishes to the festival will be asked to fill in a small card with the name of the dish and any relevant allergen information.
Aoife and Orla.
