The PTFA is confirmed news about the Christmas Fair.
We will have 3 non-uniform Fridays (17th November, 24th November, 1st December) in the run up to the Christmas Fair – Following requests from the PTFA these will be a return to the traditional ‘Non Uniforms’ For families new to the school – there is no charge for the non-uniform days; but we do ask that you send in a donation please for the Christmas Fair, in exchange for your child coming to school in their own clothes.
THE FIRST NON UNIFORM DAY IS THE COLOURED THEMED ONE. Please try and send in coloured offerings that link to the class colour for the hampers! Following the success of recent years’ coloured theme hampers, each year group has adopted a colour, and if possible, we would like children to bring in anything that is of their colour! This should then make really nice hampers that can be raffled off on the night of the Fair.
Although the coloured hampers are a great idea and are very successful, don’t let it add to the stresses of your daily lives….. if you can’t find anything of the particular colour, please do send in a regular donation as described above!
Your colours are:
Year 1: Purple
Year 2: Blue
Year 3: Green
Year 4 Pink
Year 5: Black and White
Year 6 Gold
For the following 2 Fridays (24 November & 1st December) would you mind supplying us with bottles, clean re-useable soft toys (preferably unused ones!), books, games, chocolates, toiletries, or any prizes that can be used for the tombola stall. (I know things are tough out there - just do what you can..... don't worry if you can't. Still send your kid in non uniform..... if you can only do one donation, then only do one donation. The Christmas Fair, and Summer Fair are tremendous fundraisers, and we get loads of quality stuff from you - but I'm absolutely not the type of person, or indeed is the school the type of school - who wants to add to your stresses - as always - just do what you can. That's all anyone can ask.
Please try to sell the raffle tickets – 4 strips per family! Please put your name on one side of the tickets and return this side with the money to school – keeping the unsigned ticket at home for you when you collect the winning prize! Prizes to be announced…
Raffle tickets are priced at £1.00 per strip.
