MAPUTO INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL is holding their Annual Food Fair on the 3rd   November 2018. The purpose of this occasion is to enable you to join us in celebrating our School’s international status. We are anxious to make this year’s Fair a huge success and appeal to you for your support. This year the aim is to Astroturf the soccer area and to have an infirmary room for the students.


Parents, Teachers and friends from many different countries will be setting up individual stalls where they will prepare traditional dishes, snacks and drinks for sale.  The Maputo Community are also invited to take part by renting a Vendor table at the flea market, where they may sell their wares and advertise their companies.


 A Raffle is held as part of the afternoon programme and should you be able to donate an irresistible prize, this would be appreciated. If that is not possible, we welcome any other contribution or assistance with any of the school projects mentioned. Free advertising will be given on the day via posters and announcements and in our school newsletters.


We welcome your generosity and would like to take this opportunity to invite you to the Fair, to share in the festivities, the live music, entertainment and spirit of the occasion. It will be a most memorable day.



Thank you,

The PTA Committee
