Red Clothes Day

Thank you to everyone who wore red today to support the Air Show that takes place later in the summer. I am pleased to say that we have raised an amazing £457. We hope that we will be able to sponsor a plane like we did last year.

PTA Quiz Night

Thank you to everyone attended the PTA Quiz Night on Saturday 23rd May.
13 teams competed over 8 rounds of questions and table sheets. A grand total of £530 was raised for the PTA funds. A big thank you must go to Nicky Upton and her husband who compiled the questions and ran the evening for us.
It was a fantastic evening and so well attended. We look forward to doing more of these evenings in the future.
