I just wanted to say a huge THANK YOU to everyone for turning up on a very cold December day and making the Christmas Fair such a success! It was great to see so many people supporting the school and getting into the Christmas Spirit (plus the Mulled wine!). Even Father Christmas managed to pop in and see us! And we raised over £3000 !!!!!
To all the Elves that have worked behind the scenes, shopping, wrapping, selling, buying and preparing in the weeks leading up to the Fair.
To the early team of muscle – that unpacked the PTA shed, put up Gazebos, moved tables and decorated the playground, stalls and especially those that decked the grotto with bales of holly!
To all those Elves that ran stalls wearing thermals(!) and to those brave souls that helped clear up afterwards, even though most of us had lost the will to live and lost feeling in our extremities!!
Thank you all for your generosity and support with our Mufti days and buying raffle tickets. To Miss Kelliher and staff and especially Norma and Miss Morris in the office.
Special thanks though must go to our wonderful Becky who we couldn’t do it without, Natalie our secretary and chocolate tombola extraordinaire, Thierry our Macro King and Treasurer and of course our Emily who really is superwoman and juggles more balls than anyone I know!
It really was a great team effort. And fantastic to have so many Elves helping. Thank you all for the parts you played!
Raffle Winners were:
1st Prize – ipad- Natalia (reception)
2nd Prize – gym membership – Reanne (yr 5)
3rd Prize – Christmas hamper – Gita Josh
4th Prize – Pizza meal for 2 – Agota (yr 2)

I promise not to wave my clipboard around at the school gates anymore this year or ask you for anything!! You are ALL now officially on the GOOD LIST!
love Gemma & The PTA Committee
