Book Fair

We raised £1,352.94 which gave us a commission of £811.76 to spend in new books for school!  Massive thanks to Mrs Parker and Mrs James for organising and giving up their time to manage the fair during the week.  Huge thanks also to Mrs Kinge and Mrs Moody.  Thank you to all parents and children who made purchases!

Thank you!
The donations to our sport kit fund raiser have been brilliant.  Parents/Carers, grandparents and family friends have been exceptionally generous. 
Particular thanks to Gareth Everson who has managed to get a company to provide a whole team kit for free.  More information to follow.  The school council need to decide on the best design.
