APPLE bobbing and nail painting were on the cards when a Sunningdale school held its annual Christmas fair.

Holy Trinity School held the fair, organised by the school’s parents and teachers association (PTA), last Saturday.

The day was well attended by families connected to the school and other residents, with Year 6 pupils running stalls of their own, including a water gun alley.

There was also a surprise ‘Gangnam Mania’ flashmob, with pupils and visitors encouraged to take part in a mass performance of the dance from the hit single Gangnam Style.

The school’s choir performed a selection of Christmas carols around the illuminated Christmas tree, and children could visit Santa in his grotto.

Teachers served up a variety of festive treats, including turkey rolls, mince pies and mulled wine, and local businesses hosted stalls selling items including jams, preserves and books.

The day raised more than £2,600, which the PTA will put towards maintaining the school’s facilities.

Fiona Jans, joint chairwoman of the PTA, said: “It was a great event and it has given us lots of ideas for the school’s summer fair next year!”

Iris Jones, joint chairwoman of the PTA, added: “Gangnam mania had staff, stall holders, parents and children strutting their stuff in fear of a fine from the Gangnam police, as people entered into the spirit of the flash mob – a first for Holy Trinity.”
