At the last committee meeting the majority of members voted not to have a Easter Bingo this term and also not to have a bingo next term but will try to organise a Race Night.

Only 17 children signed up for this fundraiser so unfortunately we had to cancel it, all money donated has been returned.
Thank you so much to those who did book.
Every fundraising event that we organise, letters are given to the classes involved so that every child in those classes can take one home for an adult to sign and send in the required donation.

Bonus Ball for 2015/16.
The National Lottery is changing which means another 10 numbers have been added to the bonus ball.
The knock on effect is that I have another 10 numbers plus the year 6 leavers vacant numbers that need to be allocated to parents.
Having the extra numbers and getting them filled means that the prize will swell also.
Please support your children. It will cost £1 per number for the 40 weeks between 3rd of October and 2nd July.
Let the PTFA have your details and we will allocate you a vacant number.
Many Thanks for your continued support.
Thank you for all your support for this fundraiser.
The last bonus ball for this academic year will take place on 4th July 2015 to ensure all due money is paid before we break up for the summer holiday.
The PTFA appreciate the support you have given.
The bonus ball will start up again in October so if you already have a number and would like to keep that same number please let me know as soon as possible to enable this to happen.
In October there will be an added 10 numbers to the lottery to fill. If you would like to join the bonus ball for the first time please let me know so that this can be arranged as when the year 6 move to their new school some numbers will become available.
Your commitment to this will be to be prepared to pay £1 each week until next July ( 40 weeks) (including the holidays between) (you could pay monthly) and to ensure that you pay your fee before the draw which will take place on a Saturday. With the total numbers swelling the prize will also swell.
If you are late with your payment and your number comes up you could forfeit your winnings.
Please support this fundraiser.

The school PTFA are organising a Race Night on the 20th March and the ticket price is £2-50 each.
On the back of the entrance thicket is a number (which could be your lucky number) the holder of one of these numbers will be the lucky winner of a huge £50-00. You must have your ticket with you as this will be drawn on the night.
The night will consist of 8 races with 8 horses in each race.
We need people willing to be owners of the horses, each horse ownership will cost you £2-00. We need you to purchase as soon as possible as this must be in place before the race night.
We need people willing to be jockeys for the horses, each jockey must pay £2-00 for this privilege. We need you to purchase as soon as possible as this must be in place before the race night.
Each winning owner and winning jockey will receive a prize.
We are looking for businesses to sponsor each race and the race they sponsor will be named after their business. To sponsor a race means that you are willing to supply the prizes for the owner and the jockey of the winning horse.
We will have a refreshment break during the night where you will provide your own liquid and food refreshments, we will provide you with a glass.
After the racing is over we are providing a disco so you can let your hair down.
The evening will come to an end at 12:30 - 1pm.
If we cannot fill the owner and jockey slots at least a week before the event it will unfortunately have to be cancelled.
20th March 2015
Tickets will be £2:50.
We need Race Sponsors;
YOU CAN DO THIS BY DONATING A PRIZE FOR THE WINNING OWNER
AND THE WINNING JOCKEY.
We need you to buy in to be an owner.
We need you to buy in to be a jockey.
YOU DO NOT HAVE TO ATTEND ON THE NIGHT TO BE AN OWNER OR A JOCKEY OR EVEN TO SPONSOR A RACE SO LONG AS YOU HAVE PAID YOUR FEES.
A letter will be coming home shortly about this:
PLEASE SUPPORT YOUR CHILDREN
As most of you know by now some people with allocated numbers have failed to provide us with their £1's.
Slowly the cash is coming in and as it does I will be handing previous winners who had a reduced prize the extra cash to bring their winnings up to the agreed £30-00.
Thank you for your patience.
The PSFA have been trying to enrol 49 parents to participate in this fundraiser. To date we have only achieved 38 parents willing to support us. If we cannot fill our quota there are two ways to proceed:
1. cancel this altogether.
2. go ahead with the numbers that we have and any vacant numbers being called having the winnings held over to the following week. If we do go ahead this will mean a reduced prize will be offered.
A decision will be made at the next PSFA meeting.
We have set up a seperate staff bonus ball and it has been running for 2 weeks and the numbers that have won so far are: 10 and 18.
Well done to the two winners.
Sadly the PSFA have decided to discontinue with this fundraiser due to the dwindling support from parents which is now down to around 14 parents. We would like to thank you for your continued support with this fundraiser.
