Fun in the Sun!

June 18, 2017

We hope you enjoyed the summer fair yesterday.  It was a fun afternoon out with a great atmosphere and perfect weather!  We had tombola stalls, a fire engine, yucky dip, bouncy castles, BBQ, cakes, goals, hook-a-fish, face painting, and many more…  DLC also gave us a lovely display of their dancing.

Thanks to all of you who brought in donations, manned stalls and attended the event.  We raised £1950 which will go towards creating a wildlife area by the outdoor classroom.

Extra special thank yous to Paul for manning the BBQ, to Sara for doing the programme, to the Oval families who came to help even though they had their own summer fair to prepare for, to The Lea staff for giving up their afternoon, to Emma for helping rally support, to Joe from Menace Sports for the goalie stall, to Hertfordshire Fire & Rescue for bringing the pump, and to the children who helped pick up litter at the end – in particular Sarah L, Matty M and Adie G!  Much appreciated.

Congratulations to the Lessig family who won first prize in the raffle! All other winners who were not at the fair at the time of the draw have been contacted and their prizes are available to collect from the school office.

On a personal note Anna, Emma L and myself were really touched by the flowers and gifts we were given as thank you for our time on the PTA committee.  It really meant a lot to us.  Thank you.

Summer Fair – Raffle Tickets

June 9, 2017

Raffle tickets went out in bookbags this week (one set per family) for the raffle to be drawn at the Summer Fair at 4.45pm on Friday, 16th June 2017.

You will notice that instead of sending out 20 tickets @ 50p for each family, this year we are sending 10 tickets @ £1. Everyone still has the same chance of winning and the total fee is still the same, but it hugely reduces our printing costs and admin which ultimately benefits the school even further.

We have a truly outstanding line-up of prizes for the raffle again this year – prize fund currently over £2,200!

Please return all raffle stubs with money (and any unsold tickets) by Wednesday 14th June.

A huge thank you to all our generous prize donors and programme advertisers – please support those businesses in return if you are able to.


Summer Fair – Raffle Prizes and Adverts

May 5, 2017

We are looking for prizes to be used in the summer fair raffle and were wondering if any of you work for a company that might be interested in donating and/or advertising in the fair programme? Adverts cost £15 for half a page or £25 for a full page.

All sponsors and advertisers will be listed on our Facebook page, on the school website, on the noticeboard and in our summer fair programme so companies would get good marketing coverage in return.

Please see Sue in the playground or email leaschoolpta@hotmail.co.uk if you can help.


Fun at the Fair

June 25, 2016

We held our summer fair on Friday, 24th June – it was a fun afternoon out for our pupils and their families, with a great atmosphere and thankfully the weather improved!  We had tombola stalls, bouncy castles, BBQ, cakes, stocks, coffee cup bounce, hook-a-fish, and many more… We also had a lovely display of dancing from our DLC and Zumba clubs.

Thanks to all of you who brought in donations, manned stalls and attended the event.

We raised just over £1,600 which will go towards creating a wildlife area at the top of the field.

Extra special thank yous need to go to Mrs Harris and Ross Martin for volunteering to have wet sponges chucked at them – true dedication to the cause!  And to the Oval for providing (and Dale Lambert for manning!) the BBQ – much appreciated.

Special thanks too to Emma Burden for all her work in securing advertising revenue and the great line-up of raffle prizes, and to Sara Sparrow for compiling the programme. Thank you too to all the teachers who volunteered to man a stall – we really couldn’t do it without them and we are so lucky to have their support.

A massive thank you to Emma Burden for sourcing such great prizes for our raffle and for her hard work in obtaining advertising revenue for our fair programme; and thank you to Dale Lambert and Carl Tinnion for taking such expert control of the BBQ!
