Message from the PTA (Friends of Naburn CE Primary School)

The Friends of Naburn Primary School have some exciting things coming up over the next few weeks, the details of which we can now share with you.

Love is in the air…or at least it will be in the village hall on Friday, 10th February, at our Valentine’s disco (18:00 – 19:00). This is a fantastic way to celebrate the end of half term and for the children to show love for themselves, as well as each other. Children are encouraged to come dressed in the clothes they love and will be asked nearer the time to tell us the songs they love, which will be played by our DJ at the disco. Tickets are £3, or 2 siblings for £5, payable on the door. There will be sweet treats on sale, at a small price. All children must be accompanied by one supervising adult. We hope to see as many of you there as possible. Posters have gone home advertising the Valentine’s Disco. Please return the love hearts with your child’s favourite song written on the back, so it can be played at the disco.

 Everyone loves a raffle, especially when the prize is a luxurious hamper, packed full of delicious treats from Selfridges. This is just what we have on offer this term and could be yours if you purchase the winning raffle ticket. The hamper includes, hot chocolate, orange & cinnamon spiced tea, gingerbread cookies, a festive biscuit selection, cinnamon & chocolate almonds, chocolate orange & salted caramel spread, the biggest bar of milk chocolate, rose and lemon Turkish delight, chocolate orange panettone and a cherry and sherry pudding, plus a few other scrumptious surprises. This is packaged in a gorgeous, Selfridges wicker basket, with signature, yellow buckles, which could be re-used time and time again to picnic in style. If you would like to be in with a chance of winning this amazing hamper (sold in Selfridges for £250) please pop into the school office to purchase some raffle tickets. Tickets are £1 each and the draw will take place at 3.15 on Wednesday 8th February, in the school playground.

Just a reminder that letters have gone out asking for support with the St Crux event. This is a fantastic fundraiser for the school, but is only possible if our community comes together and everyone gets involved in some way. We’ll be asking for donations of good quality, pre-loved items, as well as homebaked goods and groceries. It’s a perfect opportunity to alleviate yourself of any unwanted Christmas presents. Please look out for the letter and help in anyway you can. Also, if you are able to help on the day (Saturday 11th March, 8am – 4pm) please let the school office know, even if this would be just for an hour or so.

Your support and time given to our events is hugely appreciated. It helps us to raise extra funds for the school, which contributes to our children having the best school experiences they can.Friends of Naburn CE Primary School
