PTA News - 29th September 2017

Amazing News!

It's the start of a new Academic Year.. Following the AGM, we confirmed our annual profit of a staggering £25,000!!!, and we said a very sad goodbye to Philippa Butler. She has, for the last two years, been instrumental in shaping the PTA and ensuring that so many of our events have been a success. Thank you for all your time and patience Philippa! We welcome Louise Kennedy, who has no idea of the fun ahead.....wish her luck everyone! 

Committee Meeting

We held our Committee Meeting on the 22 September and it was fabulous to see new faces with fresh ideas and lots of enthusiasm. We have a few new events to research and will keep you posted in the next few weeks. We have sent out a detailed e-mail setting out the role of the PTA and the roles that we currently need to fill, (a copy is on our noticeboard). If you want to get involved, please do let us know. We are also in need of Class reps for Year 4, please do step forward, we can't do it without you. Please grab one of us in the playground or e-mail us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. 

Liturgy Pop Up Coffee Shop

New for this year are our Pop Up Coffee Shops in the Music Room. They will be held on each of the Liturgy Days. Come along, avoid the cold, and grab a coffee and a Croissant. The next one will be on the 4th October. It's open to everyone, not just those waiting in the warmth for the Liturgy! 

Infant Parties & Junior Youth Club

The Junior Youth Club will take place on Friday 6 October and tickets are selling fast. This year we have a disco, X-box area, Nail and Glitter Tattoo Salon and Fun Games. There will also be plenty to eat and drink. Please make sure that you get your ticket requests in early. The Infant Parties are also selling well and will take place on Saturday 7 October. We look forward to a weekend of parties!! 

Cheese and Wine Evening

A welcome party for the new parents and a chance for others to meet friends across the school. Do support this new event to be held on Friday 13th October. It will be a great way to meet parents in a more relaxed setting, away from the mad dash of school run!! Flyers will be in book bags today and posters are already up around the school. 

Library

The Library (located in the junior block) is being decorated in the theme of Harry Potter. If you have any items that you think could be used to decorate this room (or if you are a super creative type!), please do get in touch, as we could really use your help. If any of the children want to make anything at home, please do and leave all of your donations in the box in the PTA area. Thank you! 

Videographer

We are hoping to record the reception Nativity, the Year 4 Passion Play and the Year 6 Production, this year. If you know of any videographers, please pass on their details. Many thanks.
