Year end totals!

What a great end to the year! Thanks to all those that came along and made the Christmas Fair a success, and to those that gave up their time to run the stalls and activities. It was great to see the event so well attended. A particular thanks to Abbi Nash, Alison Martin, Justine Raven and Michelle Neal and the wider team for pulling it all together, not only with the Fair, but throughout the year as well.

In fact there isn’t anyone that we aren’t going to thank, as if you are reading this you are more than likely to have supported the PTA activities in one way or another throughout 2016, either by attending the events, buying items from the shop, ordering DVDs, Christmas Cards, sending your kids to the disco or volunteering your time to make fun things happen around School!

As a result of this support, the total the PTA can donate to both Schools is £14,000 with £6,000 going to Infants and £8,000 going to Juniors. The funds will go towards kitting out the Bus in Infants playground and the development of the new teaching spaces in the Juniors playground.

Next year we will be looking at bringing more parent volunteers closer to specific activities to share out the tasks so that the PTA can continue to be both as active as it has been, and sustainable with more core volunteers. We are particularly looking for parents that love admin tasks to help with processing event tickets sales and Christmas card orders. Also parents that love mass catering – particularly BBQs. Lucette, who oversees the School Shop, will also be looking for new volunteers to ensure that the Year 6 Shop Team can continue to run and develop the Shop and all the enterprise activities that have emerged from having that resource available to them. Have a think and if you are keen please say hello!

In the meantime, have a great Christmas, and see you in 2017 ready for another full year of PTA activities!

Christmas Fair – thanks to all!

Thanks to everyone that got involved in running, or attending the Christmas fair on Saturday – it was great to see it so busy!

A particular thank you to Abbi Nash and the team of volunteers and staff who pulled it together and made it a great occasion. Once again both Schools were converted into a winter wonderland with great decorations, fun activities and festive cheer!
