Christmas Wrapping

Don’t forget you can help Santa this Monday (19th) @7:30pm!

Give him a hand with wrapping the gifts for his grotto.  He needs all the help he can get! If you can’t make the evening, but are willing to take some presents home to wrap then that would be much appreciated too.

Xmas Fair Wrapping Evening – this Mon, 21st Nov @ 7.30pm

CoffeeWe’re holding a wrapping evening this coming Monday, 21st Nov, from 7.30-9pm at the school to get ready for the Xmas Fair. We’ll have the kettle on and the biscuits out, so if you can spare some time to help us wrap presents and sort stock for the fair that would be tremendous. No previous experience necessary!

Hope to see you there! Thanks Debbie & the PA Team

The Christmas fair approaches…

We are now busy planning the Christmas Fair, which is on Saturday 4th December from 12pm-2.30pm. The fair will have a seasonal theme this year (lots of green, red, gold and sparkles!) and we really need your help to raise as much money for the school as we can!

Please have a look at the list on Newsletter – Nov 2010, complete the form and let us know how you can help. Please return to the school office as soon as possible or send us an email

Refreshments will be provided at the workshops/wrapping eve/pre fair set up and we aim to make these sessions as much fun as possible, so we hope you will be able to join us!

Craft and Coffee Morning: Friday 12th

CoffeeWe’re planning a craft and coffee morning next Friday, 12th at 9.15 in the dining room to try to prepare for the Christmas fair.

Coffee and biccies provided and if you have any fabric scissors -or even any other scissors – then please bring them!

Keep checking back, because we’re planning on doing a few of these over the coming weeks.

Christmas Fair Workshop – 26th Nov

Are you missing the vital bit for the Christmas Fair?

There will be a bonnet and mop-cap making session this coming Thursday morning, running from 09.10 in the Dining Hall at school. It’ll last no more than 2 hours, and any of you who are coming in for the assembly at 10.15am might consider coming along for a bit before or after? The more, the merrier!

Those who made these before will know that they look brilliant, but are surprisingly simple to make (as long as you follow the instructions ..!)

Also, if anyone has any spare material that they could donate for this, that would be great! White cotton is best for the mop caps (got any old pillow cases or sheets that you no longer need?) and any coloured medium-weight material i.e. felt or stiff cotton would be fine for the bonnets. Even if you can’t come to the actual session, just donating the material would be a huge help – please give it to Nicola or me tomorrow or Thursday

Please come along with a needle and thread. There will be tea/coffee and biscuits available.
