CANCELLED - PTA Christmas Fair - 21st Dec 2021 - PLEASE SEE BELOW



Dear Parents and Carers

Unfortunately I have further disappointing news regarding our arranged Christmas events at St Mary Cray, once again due to the rapidly increasing Covid infections. In agreement with the PTA for the benefit of the whole school community, the Christmas Fair will now be postponed to the Spring. Early entrance tickets will be transferred to the Spring Fair.

Raffle tickets will continue to be on sale until Friday and will be drawn in School on Monday. To avoid too much disappointment, Father Christmas will still be visiting us on the 21 December for those who have already paid to see him.

To ensure that we still have some festive cheer before we break up, parents are invited to come in to the school playground on Tuesday 21 December at 2.30pm and watch their children perform Christmas Carols outside. We would ask that social distancing is observed at all times during the performance please. Once the performance has finished you will be able to take your child home.

Once again, I would like to thank you all for your understanding in these unfortunate postponements and hope by doing so we are keeping everyone safe and healthy for an enjoyable Christmas Holiday.

With kind regards

Mrs Bild





Many fun & fabulous stalls and games will be featured, including a Grand Prize Raffle, chocolate & bottle Tombola stalls, Lucky Dip, the Money Tree, ‘Splat the Elf’ and the ‘Throw a Snowball at a Teacher’ game (featuring SLT!), as well as refreshments and of course Santa’s Grotto.  In addition to our traditional stalls, the PTA are pleased to welcome independent vendors offering a variety of items including wax melts, bath bombs, hair bows, Spanish cleaning and more.  A perfect opportunity to stock up those last minute gifts or spoil yourself with an end of term treat!



Early Entry Tickets are available, allowing parents/carers entry to the fair from the opening time of 2pm. Parents may also collect their child early from class when purchasing this ticket.


The cost of the Early Entry Ticket is £1 PER FAMILY. Please book via your eldest child's ParentPay account and state number of siblings in the comments field. Early Entry Ticket price includes a ticket for the raffle (further tickets can be purchased at the fair and on the playground via PTA members from Wednesday 1st December). Early Entry Ticket sales will close on Friday 17th December and can only be purchased via ParentPay; please contact the School Office if you require assistance with setting this up. No payments will be accepted on the door.


Entry to the fair with Early Entry tickets will be via the Main School Office. Staff will assist in bringing your child to you in the Main Hall.  


Entry after 3:30pm is free of charge; please collect your child as normal from class and enter the fair through the School Office.



Tickets for Santa's Grotto are available to purchase in advance via ParentPay at £3 PER CHILD. The price includes a visit to Santa and a gift. Advance tickets for the Grotto close on Friday 17th December; a very limited number of tickets will be available on the day, so advance booking is recommended.


All proceeds go to the PTA.


Kind regards,
