School Association ( January 2016)
Hello and Happy New Year from your School Association !
Welcome to our new page which gives us the perfect opportunity to keep you all updated throughout the year
2015 was a very busy and successful year for us and thanks to everyone : parents,teachers and children for all their support...
Our usual cake sales and discos were very well attended and raised well needed funds to buy a variety of things to support the school as well as providing a treat for the children. Other events included providing refreshments and raffle prizes for the school Sports Day, organising a BBQ and water fight for the year 6 leavers and buying and wrapping presents for every child in the school so that Father Christmas and his School Association 'elves' could give them out.
The highlight of our year was undoubtedly the Summer Fayre which took place in July.We were amazed at the turnout and we would like to thank everyone who gave up their time to make the day a resounding success - even the weather behaved itself !!As a result we were delighted to give the school £2000 towards the new minibus. Spurred on by the success we are pleased to say we are in the early stages of planning another Fayre for 2016 - Watch this space for further details!
As well as raising money for the new mini bus , we were able to buy the annual zoo pass for all the children to enjoy and were also able to provide the school with new I Pads.
We are now working very closely with Mr Hanbury and his team to see how the money raised can be best used and we would like to thank him for his continuing support.We will keep you posted as to how the money you raise is spent.
Finally we are always looking for new members to join so if you fancy having fun whilst helping the school and making new friends along the way please let us know...
