Saturday 30th November saw our biggest and best NHSG Christmas Fair to date! It is always a popular family event and one of the highlights of the School’s social calendar (and Santa’s of course, he always seems to know when it is!).
With over 30 stalls from local businesses in attendance, Christmas shopping was in full flow. There was everything from woolly hats and samosas to luxury Christmas gifts for sale. Friends, family and girls of Newcastle High bustled through the Hall to browse and buy before promptly heading to the Dining Area to enjoy some festive refreshments.
Girls from the four houses of Acadia, Carpathia, Mauretania and Turbinia had a busy morning as the sweet treats they were selling in aid of The Bubble Foundation proved to be very popular with visitors spending their pocket money. Year 12’s Tycoon Challenge companies It’s A Vibe and Posh Poms were also trading, using their enterprise skills to draw in customers.
Throughout the Fair, Mr Newey led some beautiful carol singing around the piano and crowds gathered to watch Junior and Senior girls’ display of musical festive cheer.
The Fair concluded with the traditional draw of raffle prizes announced by Mr Tippett with the help of some eager ticket-pickers!
Thank you to everyone who joined us, it was lovely to see our community coming together, especially during the festive period.
