Each year South Stoke hosts a May Fayre which, over the years has become very popular with families attending from all over the region.
This event, organised by the Parents Association gives all the children of South Stoke Primary School an opportunity to perform in front of hundreds of people as they dance around the May Pole.
In addition, we are entertained by Morris Dancers, the Goring and Streatley concert band and each year features an additional band with past performances from old school pupils. There are also a host of stalls and activities to keep everyone entertained.
As the Christmas terms draws to a close, all the pupils from the school put on a performance for their families depicting the birth of Christ. There are roles for everyone from foundation through to year 6.
The 5th November is a time of year for fun, light fire and history. The annual bonfire night is one of the Parents Association's largest fundraisers and each year the display grows in stature.
The village recreation ground hosts the event, and provides a setting for the children to enjoy themselves whilst watching an amazing display in safety.
Every two years, we run a trip for years 5 and 6 to spend some time away from home (and their parents). In recent years, the school has run an exchange with a primary school in Entrevernes, France however, the French school have been unable to keep up this arrangement. This year (2016) the children will be spending 3 days at a PGL activity centre. The trip is part funded by the parents association, and gives the children an opportunity to experience being away from their families and pushing themselves to try new things.
We have some very talented children at South Stoke and each year, we support them by entering a team into the Young Voices national competition.
In recent years, we have performed at the O2 and Birmingham's National Indoor Arena. This is a wonderful event and an amazing experience for all those taking part.
This year to mark the 100 year anniversary of the end of World War 1, we held a coffee morning. Please click here for the photos.
