Angels Academy held its third annual fund raising fair from Noon to 4 pm on the first Saturday of November. It was a hot day for the season, but it did not prevent the many people attending the carnival from having a great time.
There was a ticket booth decorated in red and white, reminiscent of one seen in a circus. Several tents sheltered games tables also decorated in white and red, behind which teachers or parents helped kids who wanted to try their luck at the many games offered. They soon became populated by quite a few children looking for a thrill.
Many came to have their face painted by art teacher Stacey Adderley, or to try different games in the hope of winning prizes. The younger ones could be found in the bouncing castle while parents gathered in the back of the school where a table loaded with pastries stood. Behind the grill fathers cooked hamburgers and hotdogs. There was a continuous flow of people and as the afternoon wore on they kept coming, some bringing more goodies to be sold.
It was a festive occasion with many parents and grandparents attending as well as supporters from the community who had come to buy home-made food prepared by the students’ families and socialize with acquaintances. The school administrator, Barbara Johnson, said she was pleased with the outcome.
The school will hold its Christmas pageant with a production of Peter Pan, starting at 10 am on December 12.
