PTA Minute of Meeting – 20 October 2015
As you know, the PTA held its annual Christmas fayre last Thursday night. The Christmas fayre is always the most successful event in our fundraising calendar, and this year was no exception! We have raised around £980 from the night, so thank you to all who supported us. A huge thank you to the staff and children, who helped out on the night, and behind the scenes, to the choir, who steal the show every year with their performance, to all who came along to help on the night and those who helped to set up in the afternoon, and to all who donated tombola prizes and home baking, without support from the school community events like these would not be possible. Thank you!
