The Summer Fair is only 5 weeks away and as usual with our fairs, the PTA relies heavily on the very kind donations given by parents, carers and friends of the school.
We are gathering some fantastic prizes for the raffle! If you are aware of any businesses wishing to donate a prize or place an advert in the programme please see Lucinda / Miriam in the playground or email email@example.com. (Adverts cost £15 for half a page or £25 for a full page.) All sponsors and donors will be listed on our Facebook page, in our summer fair programme and on our blog so companies will get good marketing coverage…
Watch out for the raffle tickets which will be sent home in book bags on Monday, 11th June – top prize is a Kindle Fire Tablet kindly donated by OMNI Home Designs.
We will also shortly start to coordinate getting volunteers to help on the day. Anyone wishing to come forward already at this stage to offer assistance with setting up or running a stall, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
This year we are asking for the following help – please donate if you are able. Start collecting now, but only bring into school for the attention of the PTA on Friday 22nd June.
- Bottle Tombola – We are asking for donations of drinkable bottles, either alcoholic or non-alcoholic for the adult tombola stall.
- Children’s Tombola – A plastic beaker will be sent home on Friday, 15th June to be filled with sweets, small toys, pens, etc. – anything a child might like to win.
- Cake Stall – A plate will also be sent home on Friday, 15th June for you to please bring in yummy cake donations.
- Second Hand Stall – We are also looking for unwanted toys, jigsaws, ornaments, DVDs, CDs, etc.
All the above donations will be in exchange for coming to school in non-uniform on Friday 22nd June. We hope that you can support us with the Summer Fair and we look forward to seeing as many of you as possible on the day. Hopefully the weather will play nicely! It promises to be a fun afternoon filled with games and activities.
Elizabeth and Mujtaba in Year 5 are orgainising a Toy Bring and Buy Sale on Wednesday 23rd May to raise funds for the World Wildlife Fund. If you have any unwanted toys that are in good condition please bring them into school on Monday 21st, Tuesday 22nd or Wednesday 23rd May.
Update 25/5/18: The toy bring and buy sale, organised by Elizabeth and Mujtaba in Year 5, took place on Wednesday. It was an incredibly successful event which raised a fantastic £140.05 for the World Wildlife Fund. Thank you to Isai, Joshua C, Shozib and Hannah (Year 6) and to Mrs Carberry for their help with running the toy sale.
The next PTA meeting will be held on Tuesday 8th May at 7.30pm in the school staff room. We will be discussing the summer fair so any help/input would be greatly appreciated!
The meeting is a great opportunity for new parents to come and meet existing families and find out how you can help the PTA support the school. Please do come along!
There was a great deal of excitement in school this morning when our school took part in the 200 mile challenge for Sport Relief. All our classes from Nursery to Year 6 ran or walked laps round our KS2 playground which have now been added up and we are delighted to tell you that we have achieved our goal of 200 miles! The actual total was an amazing 351 miles! As well as breaking our record, we also raised money for Sport Relief from the £1 donations brought to school in return for wearing sports clothing for the day. The total amount will be announced in next week’s newsletter. A massive well done and thank you to everyone who took part.
The event couldn’t have happened without the fantastic leadership skills of our Year 6 pupils who carried out the data collection by counting and recording everyone’s laps, produced the posters and tally charts, and generally ensured the smooth running of the challenge, along with the help of Miss Weston and Mrs Dada. Well done and thank you!
Update (29/3/18): I am delighted to let you know that the final total raised from our 200 mile Sports Relief Challenge was just over £200 – a very apt amount to raise for this event! A huge well done and thank you to everyone involved!
