Fete Accomplished: Fun, food and fund-raising success

Founder’s Day is always one of the highlights of Queen Elizabeth’s School’s year – and the 2008 event was no exception, in spite of the inclement weather.

The Founder’s Day Fete is an important part of the day and is also the most significant event in the Friends of Queen Elizabeth’s calendar. Staplyton Field is transformed into a vibrant and colourful fete ground with numerous attractions, which this year ranged from a laser game to an international food marquee.

The 2008 fete raised a total of nearly £19,500 – a £1,500 improvement on last year.

“Thank you so much to everyone who supported the FQE Fete, especially to those brave ones who went in the stocks! The parents really appreciated seeing the staff there,” said FQE Secretary Diane Mason.

The Headmaster also paid tribute to those who organised the “logistically challenging event” so successfully.
