2nd Annual Village Fair at the Early Learning Village


Stamford's 2nd Annual Village Fair!

Saturday, April 21st could only be described as a beautiful sunny day – the best setting for one of our biggest campus events, our annual Village Fair at the Early Learning Village!

With over 500 parents and children in attendance, the entire Village was abuzz with various floors of fun activities, games, give-aways and entertainment right from the get go at 9am! It was lovely to see our Stamford families and guests enjoy both our school facilities and the activities put on – which included bouncy castles, games (for both adults and children), face painting, animals rides, free balloons (especially the metallic animal walker balloons!!), refreshments (did you try the sausages and fresh lemonade?). Families who arrived early, were lucky to receive special Village Fair t-shirts!

New families to the Village were given a warm welcome in the Hive by Dr Eric Sands, Michael Day and Lavesa Devnani, followed by a personal tour of all our wonderful campus facilities, including the newly introduced Infant Care Pod, which we must say received great reviews! We also invited the International Medical Clinic, Smile Focus and Camp Asia to join us and they offered some really fun engagement at their tables!

Families were also encouraged to give feedback of the day and enter our Village Fair lucky draw. Some of the lovely compliments received included “awesome teachers”, “great facilities”, “welcoming staff”, “great Infant Care program”, “lively atmosphere” to “we loved everything”!

We picked three winners to receive a week’s camp at Camp Asia (worth $625), a signed Julia Donaldson book or a special edition Stamford Lion! This year we were delighted to have 3 senior students volunteer – and it was great to have them lend us some spare hands – whether it was tying up balloons in the morning or giving away goodie bags at Reception, we appreciated their help and enthusiasm (one of them did say they envied their younger classmates at the Village!)

The whole event took months of planning, so a huge shout out to all involved, including the many volunteers across both campuses and the team from our Cognita Asia office.
