Future PTA Events

Games Night – 26th February

We will have a “Are you smarter than an 8 year old” type quiz and a game of Bingo. It will be £1 per person to enter each game. Mr Bulmer will be quiz master and Fiona will be the bingo caller.
We will have a raffle so can people please bring raffle prizes.
We will have a tuck shop selling snacks and soft drinks, but you can bring your own alcohol if you wish.
We also discussed having a games room in class 3

Easter Coffee Morning – 24th March 9am – 10.30am

We will need at least 6 helpers on the day. If you can help let Emma S know.
We will have a cake stall, chocolate tombola, raffle and Egg Hunt.
There will be a non-uniform day on Tuesday 22nd March in exchange for an item for the chocolate Tombola. Fiona will arrange the egg hunt and put a poster in the parish magazine.
Setting up will be on Wednesday after school. It has been commented that we need more large type cakes on the cake stalls.

Everesting – 21st May

The idea is to cycle up Newtown bank as many times as it takes to cover the height of Everest, we think this is approximately 300 times. You can get more details of this on for an idea of how it works.
Simon, Heidi, Fiona and Emma S will form a sub-committee to arrange the finer details of this. We discussed a minimum entry fee of £1 per person with people getting sponsorship if they wish. We will also try and get some corporate sponsorship. We will need stewards, first aiders and a base camp for refreshments. More details will follow at the next meeting.

School Summer Fair – 26th June

We will start planning this at the next event.
It has been suggested that we have a formal opening and no buying from stalls until the fair has been formally opened. We will have a theme to tie in with what that terms topic is, possibly Romans.
We will look at the lay out and see if we can get a wow factor there or something like a photo booth, ferret racing etc to entertain people for a bit longer.
We need new bunting and a new banner.

Summer Camp Out - 15th July

This will be open to all families with children in school. If anyone doesn’t want to camp then they can still come for the BBQ and games. More details will be arranged at the next meeting.
