Lost Property

All items of lost property will be on display this week  in the PFR, and subsequently in the Main Hall for the first week of the holidays.

During the holidays, please report to Reception first if you wish to check through these items.

Any items left will be bagged up and passed on to charity where appropriate.

The PTA will be carrying out another fundraising Bag2School event on Friday 9th November 2018 in the school car park from 08.30-09.15. Last year we raised £622 from our 2 collections. Imagine what we could raise with even larger collections!  (Even small carrier bags of items make a difference)   Pupils can take items in bags to school and leave with PTA members in the car park area by the school sign.  It does not need to be parents that drop off items to us.
The more money we raise the more we can do to support pupils in school.  If you cannot donate anything for this collection but wish to help with the PTA team, please contact Kate Diamond for more information. We are a small but friendly team who would be delighted to meet new members. Contact
katherine.diamond@btinternet.com if you wish to find out more.

Your help is very much appreciated.


Kind regards from the PTA team.
