The Friends of King’s House School recently held the summer fair, which had been postponed from the summer term due to Covid-19 restrictions. We were delighted to be able to gather as a community, with parents, children and staff enjoying the stalls and entertainment. There were wonderful musical performances from ensembles including the Junior Department Choir and Rock Band.

There were a wide variety of stalls, including Guilherme in Year 7’s biscuit stall. He said: “I picked up an interest in biscuit baking when I arrived in France at the beginning of the summer holidays. My family friend and I managed to sell 30 packs of Sablés – a type of French Shortbread – to the residents of the village. When back in London, I experimented with more types of biscuits; chocolate cookies and our best-selling “Oreos”. Perfecting these several times over, Kyle managed to come up with a new idea for a type of biscuit. We named it the Choco-berry, after including frozen strawberries and the classic chocolate cookie. We were thrilled when we heard we could have a stall at the KHS summer fair but we only had 2 days to make it all happen! Kyle’s dad taught us about revenue, profit and costs. During the fair, James did a tremendous job of marketing, giving out samples and telling others about it; even to the point when Mr Turner bought some! Overall, I would like to thank the school for giving us this fantastic opportunity and I hope we can continue to make great biscuits that everyone enjoys.”

The Parents’ Association also ran a silent auction last term, and from this raised £3,607 for London Air Ambulance and NHS Charities Together.

Many thanks to the Parents’ Association and staff for organising such a wonderful event!
