PTFA News—Summer Fayre on the 25th June

Our Summer Fayre takes place tomorrow from 12.30pm. Please come along and support our very hard working PTFA who have organised a wide range of stalls, games and activities. If there are any parents who can volunteer on the day to run a stall please see the school office. Tickets for the Grand Summer Raffle Draw were sent home last week. Please sell as many tickets as you can. This draw raises a great deal of money for our PTFA as we aim to replace the playground equipment on our Key Stage One playground. Any cakes that parents can contribute to the cake stall will be gratefully received on the day. Please help us to make this year’s fayre a great success. Thank you.
