Rain failed to dampen the spirits at the Sherburn High School Summer Fair as fair-goers were treated to an array of activities and stalls throughout the day.

Organisers Katy Arrand, Technology teacher, Annette Johnson and Alison Langdale parent members of FOSH (Friends of Sherburn High) worked tirelessly throughout the year to coordinate stallholders, staff, students and all the activities, creating a fantastic atmosphere for everyone attending.

Vice chairman of FOSH, Annette Johnson said: “Due to the rain everything was moved inside so there was something going on in all areas of the school; rock band Retro Chimp - made up of George Coe, Jake Hardman, Nathan Stewart and Charlie Wilson - performed to an enthusiastic audience in the Drama studio.

“There was also paintballing, an inflatable assault course and fitness motion on offer in the gym, painting plant pots and jam jars along with fingerprinting took place in classrooms.

“An assortment of craft stalls, games, chocolate fountain and refreshments were in the sports hall. Some of the highlights of the day were the birds of prey exhibition, staff sumo wrestling and the stocks where our very own headteacher Martyn Sibley braved the cold water sponges being thrown at him by students.”

Annette added: “It was a successful day despite the bad weather and I would like to thank all who supported us.”
