World Cup is inspiration for school fete

First published in News

CHILDREN from Longney Primary School are cheering on England by holding their summer fete the same day as the country's first world cup game.

A football theme will carry the fete, which will run 1.30-4.30pm on Saturday, June 16, the same day as England kick-off against Italy in Brazil.

Students have been learning about the world and other cultures in school, with the World Cup providing a fun background.

The school, based on Chatter Street, Longley, owes credit to their Friends Committee, for organising the fete.

Anna Whiterod, chairman of the Friends Committee, said: "It has been pretty hectic organising it as there has been so much going on."

Activities include a cheerleading display from year 4-5 students, Irish dancing from junior years while traditional fete activities such as custard pie races and penalty shoot-outs will also be included.
