Children’s Christmas Fayre

Thank you so much to everyone for their help yesterday at the Children’s Christmas Fayre.  We raised a fantastic £1018!! The afternoon had a real buzz about it and the children were great stall holders and promoted their wares really well.Lots of people took advantage of the calmer atmosphere of the PTA ‘Cafe’ whilst being able to watch the Fayre in full swing.

Our next event will be offering refreshments during the performances of Aladdin. Don’t forget we will be drawing the raffle during the interval on Friday night, there is still plenty of time to buy your raffle tickets before the draw.

Upcoming Events

The PTA will be holding its first event of the new school year – a Film-night on Tuesday 20th October. We are pleased to announce that we will be showing Minions a prequel to Despicable Me.

After half-term we will once again hold our Family Fireworks event. This year we hope to to tempt you with cob oven baked jacket potatoes and pizzas as well as our tasty hot dogs. The money raised by the event will go towards creating a level work and seating area around the cob oven.

Once the cob oven area is completed we will switch our fundraising activities to  fund the installation of a traversing wall on the playground.

We hope that you and your children will support the PTA events throughout the year and help us to continue to provide the additional resources that enhance the experiences and opportunities of all our children.

Achievements This year

The PTA have worked hard supporting a number of events throughout the year: discos and film shows for the children as well as a Quiz Night for the grown ups. Once again we held a very successful Family Fireworks event where both young and old came together to enjoy a  short concert  by Liss Band followed by a fantastic display whilst enjoying warming hotdogs.

We were delighted when the New School Minibus arrived as the PTA had been raising funds for its purchase for several years. We are now raising money to put a decked area around the cob oven so that the children can fully utilize this new resource.
