Autumn 2018

Autumn 2018 - Thank you!


‘Twas the night before Christmas (hols),
when all through the school,
excited children thought of future gifts so cool! 🎁

The PTFA rocked up with big smiles - beware!
No, they don’t want donations, πŸ’° they hoped you’d be there.

For they want to say thank you for all of your help, πŸ™πŸ»
the bottles and chocolates you could have kept for yourself. 🍫 🍾
And for coming along to fundraising events,
Especially when busy family schedules often prevent. πŸ“†

When you join us for donuts, 🍩
Discos, Fairs and the like,
We can give back to school and our children, so bright! πŸ’‘

So, let us say thank you,
We want you to know,
your support cheers us up whenever we feel low. 😊

All Parents! Families! Pupils and Staff!
We’re grateful to all for playing your part,
thanks from the very bottom of our hearts. ♥

Now hear us exclaim, before the kids reunite,
"Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good-night!"

The children will be able to choose their gifts in the final week of term. Thanks for your ongoing support!





Thank you to everyone who joined us at this afternoons Christmas Fair - we hope you all enjoyed it! We would like to especially thank all the staff, parents, pupils and former pupils who helped us plan, prepare, set up, run stalls and tidy up! It was great to see so many families joining us for festive goodies and games. We’re truly delighted to announce that through your generosity, we raised over £980 today! Thank you again for your continued support - have a great weekend! 


What a fantastic evening at the disco tonight! The hall was lit up with all the children enjoying their fingerlights, some amazing fancy dress outfits and superb dancing!
A huge thank you to the parents and staff who support us to make the disco possible - we really couldn't do it without you!
We would like to especially thank the amazing team from Murphy's Bar for being our DJ for the night.
We are delighted to say we have raised an amazing £560 tonight! With some potential company gift matching through one of our lovely parents, we could reach £1000 which would be fabulous!


Thank you to everyone who joined us for delicious donuts today helping us raise £85! Over 200 donuts disappeared in less than 15mins!
