We are very lucky that this year, Mr Firestone has kindly agreed to be the Chair of the PTA! The PTA are on a mission this year! Over the last 2 years we have been gradually updating the whiteboards in the classrooms. 5 out of 7 have been replaced with school funds. However we are struggling to find the rest to replace Year 1 and Year 4’s. Our target this year is to raise £10,000 to ensure that these 2 classrooms have their whiteboards installed by the summer of 2018! Of course we need your help!
The forthcoming PTA meeting is on Tuesday 5th September at 7.30pm at The Ship in Cobham. Do come along to support if you can! There are lots of new ideas in how to raise funds but how to also ensure that our families and children have further opportunities to spend time together and have fun!
Mrs Hargroves is leading a great initiative of running a ‘Lottery‘ at Cobham. Details will be with you shortly! I for one can’t wait to purchase my lucky number! A draw will be made each month! Who doesn’t love a chance to win cash! £12 outlay for the year! With the chance of winning much, much more each month!
Mr Firestone has had the brilliant idea of organising a ‘Comedy Night’ on Friday October the 13th at the Meadow Rooms! Tickets will be on sale before and after school on the 6th, 7th and 13th and 14th September! £15 each for a great night out! One of the comedians I have seen at the Comedy Store and he is fantastic!
Also we as a school are organising a ‘Colour Run/Walk’ for all the children and family members too if you can find the time to join in on Friday 29th September from 2pm! £5 per family! Click here for details:
Hopefully there is something for everyone within these new and great ideas!
Also in my newsletter is clearly highlighted (not that I can think about Christmas yet) but our Christmas Fayre will be on Friday 8th of December from 2.30pm-5pm! We will be asking you to collect your child from 2.30pm on that day and hopefully enjoy the Christmassy atmosphere that this event always brings to the school at this very special time of year for the children.
