The La Fontaine Academy annual Summer Fete will be held on Saturday 1st July from 12 midday – 3pm at the school.

This is our main event of the year and we hope you can make it along, even for an hour! Admission is free.
It is open to all so please bring your family and friends along too!

Please come with all your family and extended family and support this wonderful school event.

There will be a large soft play area for pre-school children under 5 and a huge assault course bouncy castle for children aged 5+. Lots of stalls (Face Painting; Tattoos; Art & Craft; Scavenger Hunt; Lucky Dip; Hook a Duck; Name The Teddy; Jam Jar Tombola; Coconut Shy; Tin Can Alley; Knock Down The Boxes, Lego Card Exchange and many more).

Tickets are £7.50 for one child and £2.50 per additional sibling to include ALL activities (including face painting and bouncy castle) and will be sold in advance in the playground from next week. Children will then get a wristband when they arrive at the fete. No charge for adults but feel free to make a donation into one of our donation buckets at the event!
