Just a note to say a HUGE thanks to ALL those who have baked cakes, manned stalls, helped clear up, helped at a disco or whatever your contribution may have been. We couldn't do any of the events without the help and goodwill of so many parents / staff / grandparents etc.
This school year we managed to raise just over £3,500 which for a small school is something to be proud of and we hope to do even better next year.
As the school year is drawing to a close, I thought you would like to know what your fundraising efforts have helped the school to buy. So, together with some of the money we raised last year we have purchased:
Cross Country Kit - We made a contribution of £87.50 to purchase cross country kit with the school emblem on them. The children now look like a 'proper team' when representing the school at cross country events;
Junior Yard - We were able to contribute £1,500 towards the cost of the repainting of the junior yard. The yard now has a football pitch and lots of other games which the children seem to be really enjoying;
Easter Hunt - The PTA organised and funded an Easter Egg hunt for all the children;
Clean Up Day - We spent just over £700 on all the costs associated with the clean up day, from paint, brushes, bark, plants, pots, bacon rolls, tea and coffee and skip hire;
Year 6 Prom - Each year the PTA pay for the Bus and Disco and from the pictures, it looks like they really enjoyed themselves;
Gazebos - We bought 5 gazebos to provide shade for the children on sports days.
Playground Equipment - We have just handed over £4,000 to Mrs Bailey. This will go towards a new piece of play equipment for the junior yard. This will be ordered over the summer.
Don't forget to check out the PTA page of this blog or join the 'Tonysguboriau Parents' page on facebook for details of upcoming events.
Enjoy the summer,
Amanda, Sharon and Yas
