Summer Party

This years Summer Party will be held on Saturday 8th July at Chipstead Golf Club—put the date in your diaries NOW! Ticket costs will be confirmed in the next newsletter but we will be offering payment by instalments. We hope lots of you can make it, especially as the Christmas party was cancelled! 

Easter Hampers

This year’s Easter fundraiser will be the ever popular Easter Hamper Raffle on Thursday 30th March. Class Reps will be organising the Hampers and asking for donations soon. Raffle Tickets will be coming home a couple of weeks beforehand and there will be a prize for the year group of the winning hamper. 

Please speak to your class reps if you have any ideas on themes! 

Quiz Night

There are only a few tables left for the Quiz night on Friday 3rd March so make sure you get your ticket requests in asap.

We have decided to offer jacket potatoes alongside the Chilli for those of you who have any special dietary requirements. Please indicate on the form if you would like this as your meal options. If you have already submitted a ticket request & would like to change your meal choice then please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Helping our Teachers

The Infant teachers were desperate for all of their reading books to be sorted out to make the book changing quicker and easier. The PTA have bought new boxes, cleaned out the area and made new labels. 

Dates for our Spring Clean will be confirmed next week. The Infant teachers have been informing us of what they would like our army of workers to focus on during the clean! 

Cookbook Recipes

Please don’t forget to submit a favourite family recipe for the St Anne’s Cookbook which we will be getting ready for the Summer Fair. We would love to feature as many families as possible in this cookbook so please submit your best recipe along with a photo to This email address is being protected from spambots.

Costume Hire

Thank you to all those who have donated old costumes and dressing up clothes so far—please continue to donate as and when you have a clear out! We have quite a few available now so if you need an outfit for a school dressing up day, or an out of school party, please drop us an email and we’ll see if we can help. Linda McCorry is currently in the process of cataloguing and photographing everything we have so far…..
