Christmas Fayre

26 Nov 2011

The PTA are extremely grateful to so many of you who came along to the Christmas Fayre last Saturday.
It was festive fun for the kids and a great sociable shopping opportunity for the adults.
We raised the recession-busting amount of £3060.59, so a huge thank you to everyone involved.


15 Oct 2011

Saturday 15th October was a busy day around the school, with Open Morning, Family Art Morning, Rugby fixtures and the PTA BBQ. Amazingly, we broke the weather curse and actually managed to enjoy a rain-free BBQ! Many thanks to those of you who came along and helped the PTA raise £200. That is the last BBQ of 2011, but we look forward to seeing many of you at Christmas Fayre on November 26th

First PTA BBQ of the New Academic Year

10 Sep 2011

On Saturday 10th September, around 150 people donned their Macs, grabbed their brollies and came along to the first PTA BBQ of the new school year. Thank you to you for coming, despite the rain. It was lovely to see our new “Catering Dad’s” get to grips with cooking for so many hungry children after games – well done to Ed and Bryan, and the rest of the committee too. If you did not make this BBQ, we hope to host another one in October, so we will keep you posted.

Many thanks,

PTA Barbecue

25 Jun 2011

On Saturday 25th June, the PTA hosted a barbecue following Senior Sports Day. It was a hugely fun event and a great opportunity for the hungry Seniors, their Parents and Grandparents to enjoy locally made burgers and fantastic local strawberries. A huge vote of thanks to Gus and Nicola Porter for providing the berries, and to everyone who supported the PTA at this event. We raised £270.
For some of the PTA, it was their last event, so a massive vote of thanks to Karen Fearn, Fiona Ross, Lorna Glynn, Sylvia Bryan and Scott Edwards for everything that they have done for the PTA over the last few years.

Annual PTA Golf Evening

20 Jun 2011

On Monday 20th June, the Annual PTA Golf Evening was held at Glenalmond. This is a popular event and was supported by 27 golfers, despite the rain that had been falling before tee-off. Many congratulations to the winning team of Eamon O'Brien, Tony Ottley and Les Bayne.
The evening raised £140 for the PTA, so thanks to all who came along.

PTA Barbecue

07 May 2011
What is it about the PTA BBQ's in May that always encourages the rain? Despite the wet start, we welcomed 120 brave people along, many of whom had been at Saturday games, the Art morning or the School Open Day. And the sun did show itself for a brief time - enough to keep us dry for a couple of hours. The next BBQ will be in June after Senior Sports Day, so fingers crossed for better weather that day. And remember to get your names down for the PTA Golf Evening on Monday 20th June.

Quirky Quiz

26 Feb 2011
As you can see from the photos, this event was absolutely packed with over 100 parents coming along to rack their brains for a chance to win the coveted trophy. This was our third quiz night, its popularity has grown with every year, and we are indebted to Tina and David, our excellent entertaining quiz hosts.

As well as enjoying a great evening, we raised over £200 towards outdoor shelters for the astroturf. Thank you to everyone who came along and to our helpers, especially Jean who provided plates of homemade chips at half time!
