Car Boot Sale

Thinking about the amount of publicity that we gave this event and that most stalls made a reasonable profit we were disappointed at the lack of support (even to just come and have a look around).

Many thank to everyone who had stalls and did come to peruse the goods.

Car Boot/ Table Sale:

1st July

 

We are organising a car boot sale on 1st July within the school car park.

Each plot cost will be £5-00with or without a car.

If you do not have your own table we will loan you a table for an extra £3 which will then bring your plot total to £8-00.

In the event of rain, we will transfer to inside the main school hall ( anyone who has paid a table loan fee will receive the cash back.)

You will be able to set up from 8-30 and the gates will be open to the public at 9.

We ask that you do not move off again until after 1-25 for safety reasons.

There will be tea, coffee, bacon or sausage barms available.

Every child took a form home last week but if you would like a replacement form contact either the office or a ptfa member.

Thanking you,

PTFA.

 

Children's Raffle.

 

Many thanks to everyone who bought tickets for the raffle.

We do apologise for not having anyone selling tickets on the playground this time as the two ladies that run the tuck shop are away doing lots of charitable works on the other week days and we are very short of parent helpers. 

There were 26 prizes in all, ranging from a pack of 30 sharpie pens, colouring equipment, dinosaur excavation materials, play dough and half pint glasses full of gums and marshmallows plus lots more.

Many thanks again,

PTFA

The Make-Up Studio times 2:

Many thanks to everyone that helped on the night including ptfa members and Diane J, Angela and never forgetting Angela's dad who calls the numbers ever so well, Lewis and George. Big hugs to everyone. Thank you Ronnie for  locking up.

Bingo:

Friday 31st March 2017.

The PTFA are in the process of organising a Friday night bingo to raise funds to be able to purchase Easter eggs for the children.

The entrance tickets will cost £2:50 which are placed in a container and the lucky ticket that is selected wins either £30 or £50 depending on how many people attend.

 

For refreshments: please bring your own and we will provide you with a glass and if you would like a snack half way through please bring that too.

You can purchase a book of six tickets for your main games and later on we may play one or two quickies.

During the evening people will wander around selling places on the spot the ball tickets. We will have a game of heads and tails. We will also have a game of 50p a bottle and the person whos 50p lands closest to the bottle wins it.

 

Please support our fundraising efforts as everything that we do raise goes to purchasing the little treats that your child receives during each year.

Years 1, 2 and 3s film night

This was a huge success and all the children behaved impeccably.

Each child had a drink and a bag of sweets whilst they watched the film. It was a pleasure to be there. We had a little hiccup with the sound that was put right and I think the children had a good time too.

Look out for the next one.

​Film Night

 

Keep your eyes out for the

year 1, 2 and 3 film night!

Photographs with Santa

 

This year photographs will be restricted  from nursery to year 3.

Years 4, 5 and 6 will not be taken.

All photographs will be free from charge.

Bingo

 

The PTFA had a fundraising bingo on 25th November to raise funds for the children's selection boxes for this Christmas.

The evening was a great success and great fun.

After all the bills were paid we had raised £400.

This was £50 short of our target.

A huge thank you to all parents that attended the event. 

Also we would like to thank all the people and businesses who donated prizes helping to ensure a good night was had by all.

      XOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOX

Film Night

Film night went off superbly. 

Sorry that it ran a bit over time.

The children were wonderfully behaved and it was a pleasure to see them enjoying themselves.

It was a thoroughly good night all round, well done everyone.

Thank you to all the helpers on the night as we could not do these events without you all.

 

 

 

Film Night. 

 

This coming Wednesday 19th October.

 

This event will take place straight from school until 4:45pm and all children must be collected by 5pm as there is a Zumba class soon after 5pm.

 

Tickets are £2:50 each which includes a drink at half time and some sweets to take home.

 

We have decided to show a Goosebumps film as there are a great deal of these books in the upper school class libraries.

 

We are almost to capacity so we are not taking any bookings after Monday to ensure that we have the correct amount of tuck for the children.

 

Thank you for supporting this event.

 

 

 

 

 

Film Night:

 

Hi All,

As you can see we are trying out another of the suggestions that you as parents have given to us.

Wednesday 19th October 2016 will be our first film night and we are going to cater for years 4, 5 and 6 this time

​Places are limited and will be on a first pay decision. All payments should hopefully be made by this Wednesday for us to be able to purchase the refreshments.

 

​It will cost £2:50 per child payable in advance please. Included in the fee will be a drink and some sweets.

If there are not enough takers for this fundraiser all monies paid will be refunded.

This is an all pre paid ticket event which means we will not take cash on the day.

If this event is a success our next film night will cater for years 2 and 3.

 

Thanks PTFA.

 

 

 

Year 6 Leavers Disco.

 

Every year your PTFA fund the year 6 leavers disco and this year is no exception.

A good night was had by all.

Well done to all the staff that stayed and helped. no

Below are all the pictures taken on the night.

 

Bonus Ball.

Sadly we have decided not to run a parents bonus ball fundraiser this year because of the lack of support last year.

Many thanks to the parents that have supported us, we are very grateful.

Bonus Ball

 

 

The final Bonus Ball winner has been selected for this academic year.

 

The PTFA would like to thank everyone who has participated in this fundraiser.

 

Unfortunately it seems that this fundraiser may not take place next year because of the lack of support for it. This years figures for participation are as follows: 

 

Parents: 37 but 11 are year six parents which would mean                      26 for next year.

Staff: 8.

Vacant numbers: 14 Parents who have dropped out that we could not replace .

 

Once again thank you for your participation.

Whitsun Children's Raffle.

Unfortunately because of the terrible weather that occurred last week, we were not able to sell raffle tickets on the playground. We have not had enough cash to purchase prizes with the money donated at the moment from the envelopes that were sent in to us.

WE HAVE CHANGED THE DATE OF THE DRAW.

The draw will now take place after the Whitsun holiday.

The new date is:

WEDNESDAY 15TH JUNE 2016.

We are sorry for any disruption.

PTFA.

 

   XOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOX

Whitsun ​Children's Raffle.

 
Our next fundraising event will be the children's raffle which will be drawn the week before half term.
 

Raffle tickets will be sold on the playground during the junior playtime, after school when someone is available to do this or you could put the money in an envelope with your child's name and class on it and we will return the raffle tickets to you via the class teacher.

 

 

 

Bonus Ball Spare Numbers.

Due to non payment for many weeks we now have TWELVE

numbers that are vacant. 

The knock on effect of this is that the prize will be reduced by £10 until these numbers are taken.

The prize is now £30-00 until further notice. 

Apologies from the PTFA.

Thank you also to everyone who helped setting up the hall, selling tickets, sorting prizes, selling the bingo books, heads and tails, spot the ball and also calling the winning cards numbers.  Without all the people who give their time there would be no fundraising bingo's etc.  Thank you all so much.

PTFA MEETING

 
  The next meeting of the PTFA committee is this Wednesday 20th January 2016.

Photographs

Unfortunately some photographs were not printed by the developers and this was not discovered until after the pictures were deleted from the cameras memory card. We do apologise to the few children and parents that did not receive their photographs because of this.

Photographs.

The children who were present were photographed with Father Christmas Last Tuesday. 

It was decided that Father Christmas would give the children their selection box this year instead of them being given out on the last day.

The selection boxes of the absent children were delivered to the classrooms for when the children return to school.

The photographs will be given to the children as soon as we can sort them out. 

There will be no charge for the photographs this year, the PTFA have covered this cost.

Many thanks,

PTFA.

Hi Everyone,

Just to let you know that the PTFA are in the process of setting up a twitter page as an alternative way to introduce any fundraising events as they get close to the dates. Also look for the PTFA events page on facebook.

Hoping that you will all sign up to it.

Thanks,

Laura Hughes.

Hi everyone:

Just to say a big thank you to everyone who took advantage of the tuck shop on Friday. It was a big success but we do have some tuck left so we are planning another tuck shop next Friday to try to sell the rest of our wares. 

This will be the last until after the half term break.

Thank you for your support.

There is still time to return your questionnaires to be entered into the prize draw.

Time is Now Up.

Well we received 7 questionnaires to put into the draw.  Not a lot you may say, but thank you so much to the people who did return the questionnaire because you have given us so many ideas to discuss.

Some of the ideas are already in place and will be emerging shortly, the others we are having a discussion about to see which ones can be activated this year and which ones will keep for coming years.

Lastly we come to the important item:

'The  Draw for £20-00' 

and the winner of this is Clare DavisonWell done Clare. Your cash will be winging itself to you very shortly. 

Bonus Ball for 2015/16.

Hi all,

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.

Bonus Ball.

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.

Car Boot / Table Sale:

23rd May 2015.

Sadly  the turn out was poor as some people who had booked pitches and told PTFA members that they wanted a pitch either did not turn up or did not inform us that they had changed their minds.

One person turned up ( the person who wanted the pitch was ill) and they insisted that we take the fee. You know who you are, thank you so much you are a star.

We were notified about another illness also, get well soon to both of you.

It was very disappointing that this event was supported by such a minimal number of parents (just to come along and have a look). By the end of the event between us all we counted less than 10 parents had come along, so thank you so much to those parents who took the time to come along and support the people that had booked pitches.

Also a huge thank you to the people who did buy pitches, all money raised is used in various ways on all the children who attend the school.

Tickets are £2:50 each that could be worth £50 if your number is selected!

 

Race Night

      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.

Bonus Ball Fundraiser

 

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.

Staff Bonus Ball.

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.

100 Club

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.

The next 100 Club draw is on 

Tuesday 30th  September 2014.

Please try to support our fundraising efforts, as all the children within the school do benefit from our and your efforts.

Pop £1 in the envelope that your child brings home(or use one of your own) with  your name, your child's name, and your child's class on the front. Pass it back to the school and before the last school day of the month. A child from each class in turn will select the winning envelope.

 

We have wonderful support from the staff (even though only a few staff have siblings in the school) in school for this fundraiser but sadly the parental support is at its lowest.

Over the year your minimum participation would be £11 as opposed to the lowest monthly win od £25-00. Them more participants the bigger the prize.

Your children need your support.

 

Thanks PTFA.
