Rain or shine tradition marches on! The annual May Fair was held on Saturday and raised thousands of pounds for charity, thanks to the enthusiasm and support of the TASIS community.
Included in the fun were games, food stalls, outside vendors selling a wonderful array of fashion items, jewelry, artwork, British mementos, and much more. Students from Lower, Middle and Upper Schools provided entertainment, including an intricate Maypole dance, traditional line dances, singing, and instrumental music. All of the performances were streamed live online.
This year TASIS attempted a new world record to help raise money for the Peterson’s Fund for Children, a charity dedicated to improving the lives of children with disabilities who live in the Surrey area. Activities Coordinator, Ms. Raynor, along with Peterson’s founder Charlene Peterson organized 420 students to perform the cup song in an effort to break the world record of 349. The photos and video footage have been sent to Guinness World Records. Good luck TASIS!
This year eight charities will benefit, chosen by students in each division.
Lower School: Great Ormond Street Hospital
Middle School: Gilshan Literacy Program, MacMillan Cancer Support, Pancreatic Cancer Action Network, Tower Hill Animal Sanctuary,
Upper School: Peterson’s Fund for Children, Runnymede Foodbank, White Lodge Centre
