Happy Children in Need Day!

Whilst we are not massively fund raising for this wonderful charity this year it is not because we don’t support it – just don’t want to be constantly asking for donations from you all. Today our fundraising was teddies, bottles and any unwanted gifts in exchange for wearing whatever clothes children fancy.

You will be receiving this newsletter on paper again this week since our ‘Sims InTouch’ is not currently working – very annoying and ECO wasteful – hopefully it will be fixed very soon. I apologise for this inconvenience.

Tonight of course is the children’s disco night! Lower School straight from school, parents to pick-up at 4.30pm and then Upper School children in at 5.00pm and to be collected at 6.15pm. The price of £4 per child for the disco includes drinks and a snack. If you haven’t already paid you can pay at the door as a last resort but you will have to sign your child in and give consent, so please don’t just drop them off with £4 in coins as the PTA must have your consent to allow them in. Thank you.

Last night saw a brand new PTA event ‘The Christmas Market’ targeted at adults buying special Christmas gifts, enjoying some delicious refreshments and in many cases creating a beautiful Christmas Wreath. A superb night was had by all and some vital funds were raised to support the enrichment of your children’s education … thank you to all those that came and of course especially to those who organised this delightful occasion. Whilst on the subject of Christmas – ‘The Cracker Competition’ closes next Friday! The Fantastic Fair itself is 2 weeks tomorrow, ice skating opens at 10am and main Fair opens at 12 noon. There is a Magic Show – really excellent and also of course a ‘not-to-be-missed’ visit to Santa’s gorgeous Grotto! Book yourselves into everything – I understand that most things are getting very booked up so don’t miss out, get in quick!
