There was lots to do at the fair, including; chocolate and bottle tombola's; penalty shoot-outs; lots of different games; a variety of crafts; raffles and many more. As well as lots to do, there was also lots to eat! You could choose from strawberries and cream, a selection of sweets, fruit kebabs - with a chocolate fountain and a delicious BBQ ran by friend of the school, Mr McKenna of 'McKennas at the Northern Stage.'
This week, Oakfield Junior and Infant schools joined forces once more to hold an unforgettable Community Event.

There were toy and book stores, a hook-the-duck game and the girls even had the chance to get their nails painted!
"I'm very pleased the sun came out for us. It was great to see the bookstore do so well!"
Julie Schnieder, Parent Govenor.
Mr Thompson played goal keeper at the very popular 'penalty shoot-out' game on the field.
"I really enjoyed taking shots at Mr Thompson, he was really good but I still scored two!"

The bottle tombola and raffle prizes, which were kindly donated, proved popular as lots of tickets were sold prior and during the fair. We also had an agency in to inform children of the dangers of smoking.
"It was good making your own fruit kebab - the chocolate fountain made it awesome!"

The very popular BBQ, ran by chef Mr McKenna was very popular and certainly kept him busy all evening. Luckily, the weather held out and we were able to enjoy our burgers while sat on the field in the sun. Many thanks to Mr McKenna for his help!
"It was great to come back to my old school! I really enjoyed it, it was great to see all the old teachers. The BBQ was amazing, I could have eat 10 of thise burgers!!"
Kieran Knight, former pupil.
We were also visited by the Police and Fire Service - who brought one of their engines for children to have a look, and a sit, in. Thanks to them for their time.
"I bought some great toys, especially the remote control. By the end of the fair I had spent all my money but I've had a super day!!"
Sean, 3 Ash.
Many thanks to parent, Caroline Scott, who made this fantastic cake based on the Jubilee and the forthcoming Olympics. Here is what she had to say;
"It was great to see my cake on display at the fair, I was happy to contribute and I'm happy I could help."
Teachers from the Infant school cooked up a storm on the fire pit, with children and their parents roasting marshmallows on the open fire. As you can imagine, this was very popular.
"I loved roasting marsmallows in the fire pit, they were delicious."
Aliyah, 4 Beech.
We also had a very special visitor, Jack Graham, the Deputy Mayor of Gateshead. This is what he had to say.
"I am thrilled to see so many people attend the Community Event, judging by the crowd a lot of money was made. The weather was great and overall a fantastic day was had by all!"
I am sure you will all agree that our first joint Community Event was a huge success. Thank you to everyone involved for sending in donations, organising raffles, setting up and manning stalls and for attending on the day.
An amazing £2000 was raised for school funds.
