This year our school bazaar will take place on the 3rd of November. For many decades it is the main fundraising event of our school and it is a well-known and loved festival by lots of Capetonians. The bazaar is organized by the parents in close cooperation with the school principals, teachers, administration office and learners. The funds raised benefit our school directly. In the past for example, we financed the Interactive Whiteboards and last year’s profit went into 2 x mini football cages and up grade for our canteen “Linga Longa”.
Our bazaar can only be successful, if it is carried by the whole school community. It is a mandatory school day for learners and teachers. The parents are preparing and organizing the various stands and actively participate in their class’s stand on the bazaar day. After a busy working shift, the fun factor to meet friends and enjoy what the other classes are offering is even more exciting!
At the beginning of each school year two bazaar representatives are elected during the first parent’s evening. Their role is to organize and coordinate their fellow class parents to make their own stand as successful as possible. Some meetings with all bazaar representatives are planned, with the first one scheduled for April. During this meeting, all questions regarding the various stands are answered.
The whole event is managed by the bazaar committee. They operate independently from any class activities and make sure the infrastructure provided secures a smooth and successful event.
We ask all parents for their active support, be it as a bazaar representative, a member of the Bazar Committee or as an active helper at your class stand. The bazaar offers a host of opportunities to strengthen our school community and to have fun with fellow-parents and friends.
In the course of the year, we will ask you to donate a variety of items: from fashionable, as good as new clothing for our Boutique, prizes for our tombola, contemporary books in good condition and specifically picture books for our book stand and all other, still usable items for the flea market. The Mozart Café will ask for freshly baked cakes and reward a prize for the best cake.
Time and again we receive requests whether it is possible to rent a stand at the bazaar in order to sell goods. Unfortunately this is not possible as the school bazaar’s sole purpose is to raise funds for the DSK. However, sponsors and exhibitors interested in promoting their products and services can rent a table.
We are looking forward to a fantastic DSK Bazaar 2018 and thank everyone for their help, support and engagement.
