PTA: Summer Fair – Thank you!

Thank you to everyone who was able to join us for the Summer Fair on Friday afternoon. A very big thank you must go to all members of the PTA who worked so hard to make the event such a success this year. We are thrilled to announce that we raised £641.58!

Well done to the children who took part in the Mini-Enterprise event. The children will be deciding in their classes on how they wish to spend their profits – We will keep you posted on their decisions!

Thank you also to the PTA who provided ice-lollies for the children last week and for also funding the wrist corsages for the year 6 girls in preparation for the Leavers’ party at the beginning of July. The PTA work tirelessly to raise funds for the pupils and as a school we are incredibly grateful for everything they do.

PTA: Summer Fair – Friday 15th June

We will be holding our annual Summer Fair on Friday 15th June at 3:10pm on our playground. To ensure that all children are collected at the end of the day we ask that once pupils have been collected that parents/carers walk around to the back of the school and queue up at the back gate. Once all children have left the premises the gates will reopen. This is the safest way of us ensuring all children have left the school premises at the end of the day.

If you are able to help set up from 1pm in the afternoon, or clear away after the event, please contact Miss Storey. Thank you to the PTA Committee and Miss Storey who have all worked tirelessly to plan for our Summer Fair this year.
