Key Dates 2017- 2018
Wednesday 7th March Mothers Day Sale
Friday 16th March School Disco
26th March Easter Raffle
Mothers Day Sale
Thanks to all who kindly donated gifts for the sale. It was a great success and lovely to see all the children taking so much time on picking out that special trip for the mum. All the children left the room with a huge smile on their faces.
The Spring disco will take place on Friday 16th March. Letters have been sent home. If your child would like to attend then just send in £1.50 in an envelope with your child's name on and a ticket will be issued.
Key stage 1 6.00 - 7.00pm
Key stage 2 7.15 - 8.30pm
Your child will shortly bring home an envelope with their name on for the Easter raffle. If your child would like to take part then simply return the envelope with £1.50 inside to their class teacher. Each child has the chance to win one of the three class eggs and then gets entered into the whole school draw which means one child from key stage 1 and one child from key stage 2 can win a larger Easter egg.
If you have any spare time on your hands and feel you could give some time to either help set up, run a stall or pack away at any of our events then let us know. You could leave your details at the main office or talk to any of the FOSPS team.
A Huge Thank-you from all the FOSPS Team
Thank-you for your support in all of our events. I think you would agree it has been a fun filled year. The cake sales again have been a great success, our new Mother's day sale was really popular and from the feedback that we received the children loved choosing a gift. The disco was enjoyed by all and the Easter raffle went down a treat. Congratulations to all who were lucky enough to win an egg. The children loved working along side both the poet and artist in residence and the Summer fair was one of the best for fund raising that we have ever had.Lastly the ice cream Fridays were again a great success. We are looking forward to the next fund raising year and welcoming some new member at our AGM.
