How can it be the Easter holidays already?
We had such high hopes of getting back to normal.
With Covid cases in and around the school over the last four months we reluctantly put our FUNdraising plans on hold.
Hopefully, with warmer weather and lighter evenings, we'll be able to hold some FUNdraising activities out-doors over the summer term.
Plans are still to be finalised. If all goes well, we hope to arrange:
Keep an eye on our Facebook page for further details.
AGM & New Committee
After being unable to meet due to Covid we'll hold our AGM in April or May. Date tbc.
We'd love you to come along and if you can, join the PTA to help organise and run our activities.
Clothes recycling donations
Are you planning a spring clean for the wardrobe? Wouldn't it be great if you could recycle and donate all those good quality clothes whilst raising money for the PTA at the same time?
With Rags 2 Riches 4 Schools we've arranged a collection of good quality unwanted, re-useable (clean, dry and wearable) clothes and accessories.
Simply pop your items in a large plastic bag and drop off at the school between 07:45 and 09:30 on 12 May.

Intel - Thank you again
We received another massive boost from Intel, with a donation of £2,656.67.
The donation recognises parent employees who juggled home schooling with their work commitments during the second lockdown.
On behalf of the children, school and PTA a massive thank you.

Little Wanborough Card Shop
Thank you to everyone who bought cards from Nicola at the Little Wanborough Card Shop. You helped to raise £30 for the PTA.
After the disappointment of having to cancel the trip to the Wyvern we hope the children enjoyed the virtual panto of Cinderella in their classrooms. The PTA donated £270 to cover the cost.
We paid £44 to renew the magazine subscription and hope this continues to inspire the children to read.
Donate whilst you shop
From your digital shopping we received donations from easyfundraising £48.56 and AmazonSmile £47.43.
To boost the donations, we need more parents and family members to sign up. Remember – you still pay the same price – we receive a share of the commission earnt.

Second-hand uniform sales
Hopefully the sun will make a return and the children can wear their summer uniform after the Easter break.
If you need a top-up to see you through the final term, we've a range of polo shirts, jumpers, summer skirts/dresses, trousers and PE t-shirts all in good condition.
We hope to run a second-hand uniform stall at Sports Day. If you need some help before then please contact Emma via firstname.lastname@example.org and we will look to help.
