Teams sport competitions: Soccer and Volleyball

Food & Crafts Booth,

Winners will be asked to claim their trophies or prices at the Fair Stage.

The World Languages Fair has proven to be a great student motivator and with your support and participation, we are certain that this fair will be bigger and better. If you are new to this event and have questions we havent answered in this information packet, please feel free to send un an e-mail [email protected] or communicate directly with this years Fair Chairs.
