PTA Spring News

“A huge welcome back to all parents and children after the half term from the PTA. We’ve got some exciting events for everyone coming up over the next few months and we wanted to send out some dates for your diary.
On the 14th March it’s one of the school’s biggest fundraising events of the year, St. Crux – this is a huge fund-raiser for the school and you’ll have received your St Crux fund raising form before half term. If you haven’t already, please do return your form ASAP, we really appreciate your help – we’re especially desperate for home-baked contributions, as well as help on the day. Your support is so important to making this event great, and a huge thanks in advance to everyone who’s able to get involved. This year the children will be singing, to raise additional money for school. So do bring your child along at either 10am or 12.15pm to join in with this. They will be practicing songs at school in advance of this.
Save the date for our family fishing day on the 16th May hosted by Pool Bridge Farm – we’re just awaiting confirmation on the details, and anyone who remembers the last time we did this will remember what a fantastic family day out it is.
And you won’t want to miss the Summer Disco on 12th June or our Floating Quiz (weather dependent) on the 26th June. We’ve also got our end of year party on the 17th July which will be a fantastic finale to the year, and an event not to be missed.
Bake off: We’d also like to set a challenge for the children, with each class battling to create and sell ‘the best in baked delicacies’ at one of 3 school bakes coming up this year.
The first will be Rowan class on Friday the 6th March – can children please bring baked goodies to sell after school on that day in the playground. Next up will be Willow class on Thursday 30th April, where they will take their turn to ‘wow’ us with their home-baking, with Oak taking on the challenge on Wednesday 20th May.
The proceeds from all of the above will go towards a ‘Creative Cabin’ for the school – which will be a fantastic, much needed additional space for the children to read in and practise music, amongst other things.
As ever, the fundraising we do is only as good as the support we muster from you as parents, and we’re incredibly grateful to everyone who helps, bakes, organises, and gets involved, however small – your help really does make a difference – thankyou!”
In addition, the Friends of Naburn are looking for ideas for a Record Breaking attempt! The children were asked yesterday in Collective Worship to come up with some good, achievable ideas so do please have a discussion with your child(ren) tonight and tell them to let us know!
