“Remember, Remember the 5th of November!”
Make sure the date is in your diary for the PTA Guy Fawkes Night – Tuesday 5 November. The poster art competition for the event is now officially underway and the winning entrant will have their unique artwork displayed on posters around school and the tickets for the event. There will also be prizes – a great incentive for the children if there is a quiet moment over a rainy weekend! Please ensure that all designs are on A4-size paper, landscape/horizontal and there should be no words or numbers on the poster. The competition is open to all Primary school students and all entries must be submitted to the class teacher by the end of school on Wednesday 9 October.
By popular demand, we will be scheduling another jumble sale before the Christmas break. Previous jumble sales (better known as “rummage” or “garage sales” in the US) have been hugely successful with both vendors and buyers. It’s a great opportunity to declutter and sell miscellaneous articles (usually cheaply, as they are predominantly secondhand items), and for those wishing to buy, it’s the perfect place to bag a bargain! We are just checking for the best date to hold the event and hope to confirm the date with you very soon.
