Happy New Year to you all!

Happy New Year to you all!

Hopefully you are all back into the swing of things after Christmas and all the snow! We wanted to write to tell you about a few things that are happening this term.

  1. Autumn term funds raised and spending
    Thank you to all those who got involved in PA activities last term whether on the organising, or the spending money, front. We raised over £3000 through the Camp café, the greeting cards project and the Christmas Fair and, as you know, this directly benefits all of our children. Spending last term included completely replacing the chairs in the dining room which had been in use for about 25 years, paying for a professional company to come into to perform a pantomime to the children, and treats at Christmas including crackers and chocolate bars at the Christmas lunch and a teacher’s present for each child. We always ask the teachers for ideas of what the PA funds should be spent on, but we’d be pleased to hear your views too!
  2. Class Reps
    A big thank-you to the current team of class reps who are doing a fantastic job. If anyone is interested in becoming a class rep, please do let us know as we did say we would rotate this on a termly basis.
  3. Camp café
    This term Reception will be hosting a café on Thursday 7th February. Please come along and buy a cake in a great cause. It doesn’t just have to be reception parents making/bringing cakes. All offerings will be gratefully received.
  4. Regular unwanted gifts or new items.
    As you know, we are keen to get our hands on any new items, which could be suitable for prizes at the school fairs. We thought it would be a good idea to have regular collection weeks. The first one will be w/c 25th February. Look out for the collection point by the PA shed and start digging out any unwanted Christmas presents. Remember this collection will only be for new items as storing loads of bric-a-brac won’t be possible.
  5. Calling all Mums!
    We will be holding a Mother’s Day event Friday 8th March, from 1.45pm in the dining room. This will take the form of a coffee afternoon, and we hope that people will be happy to bring and share a yummy treat. We are hoping to have a few stall offering pampering treatments, or products. If anyone is interested in offering their services/products, please let us know. You just have to pay £5 per table and then you can sell your wares. This is a great way to promote your own businesses
  6. Quiz Night
    Our very popular annual quiz night is planned for Saturday 23rd March this year. However, we are currently missing a vital element – a Quiz Master! If you feel that you, or a team of you, could fill this role, please let us know. The quiz has always been a really great evening and it would be a shame if it couldn’t go ahead.
  7. Ink Cartridge Recycling
    Please, please can you bring in your old ink cartridges (collection box by school office) as we can recycle these for money. We have already made £50 and it’s such an easy way to make a few pennies.

Many thanks!

Helen, Caroline and Karen
