Summer Fun Day 2017

Although the sun didn't really come out until we were packing away luckily the rain stayed away and even though numbers attending were sadly down this year, it didn't affect the atmosphere and everyone appeared to be having a good time. It was great to see so many students running stalls and

the bungee run seemed very popular as did the tombola, and of course, the students were extremely eager to get their own back and throw wet sponges at their poor teachers.

The raffle was very successful and we are extremely grateful to the businesses and individuals who kindly donated some excellent prizes. Well done to Sam Clarke who won the 1st prize £100 Amazon Voucher.

The inter school competition, to see which stall could raise the most money, was won again by Alex Pana. Once again she had put a huge amount of effort into her cakes. She thoroughly deserved to win the prize, but I have to say that a couple of the other stalls were hot on her heels this year. So well done to everyone who took part and supported us. In fact, their efforts nearly contributed to half our earnings on the day!

The theme of this year's Cake Competition was "Fun in The Sun".  The number of entries was disappointing but the standard of those that did enter was very high. Congratulations to Esme Hale who was the winner of the best decorated cake and Miss Bennett for winning the best tasting cake.

We are delighted to announce that overall the Summer Fun Day and Raffle raised just under £2200 and all the money will be used by the PTA to help enhance your daughter's or son's experience whilst at the school. 

This is a fantastic result and was very much a team effort - we appreciate the donations from families and supporters, the time given up by parents, students, teachers and the PTA volunteers, not forgetting the school caretakers, Chris and John,  who helped so much in the preparations. I would also like to say thank you to Delia for providing the refreshments in the dining hall and being supportive throughout the morning.

So a big thank you to everyone who helped in anyway large or small.

We hope everyone enjoyed the day and we look forward to next year.
