School Sale

Our school sale will take place this year on Tuesday 25th June at 10 a.m.

School will run as usual and classes will go to the sale from 10.00 a.m. We will accept donations from Fri 21st June. We will have the usual stalls i.e. Toys, Books (in good condition), Cakes, Raffle for children and adults etc.  Any offers of “Face Painting” or other ideas are always welcome. It would be appreciated if families could bring items for each stall.  Once again the P.A. are kindly organising ‘Teas’ so a Tray Bake would be appreciated.  If any parent can help out in the teas room for half an hour on the day –please contact the P.A.

Each child will be given a large white envelope to decorate and fill with goodies to make up a lucky bag. Please label clearly whether it is for a boy or a girl. Your help and support for this project is greatly appreciated.  Parents and siblings are welcome. It has been suggested that for homework on Monday 24th June all pupils would be asked to bake!!  Perhaps they could all turn out a dozen rice crispie buns, flapjacks or similar for the sale!
