Appleby School Fair

A massive thank you to all parents of Appleby School and to the greater Appleby community from FOAS for your support on Saturday.

Everyone put in an amazing effort and hopefully had great day in the process of raising money for our school.

We are planning to have a post fair meeting on Tuesday 19th September at 2.30pm in the school staffroom.

This gives an opportunity to review what worked well, what could be improved or changed and any new ideas for the future. It works well doing this close to the Fair or we have all forgotten by next year.  Please come along and share any feedback.  Or if you can't attend please email your comments to dorrenkirkaldy@hotmail.com / constructive criticism gratefully received.
