The Summer Fete - 26/6/11
On what turned out to be the hottest day of the year so far, we held our Annual Summer Fete in the playground and image - Fete (June 11)car park at school.  Utilising all the gazebos to give as much shade as possible, we set up an array of stalls and attractions to welcome pupils, parents and friends alike.  The top prize in the raffle - a 1/2 day 4x4 tuition experience at Manby Motorplex - was won by Paula Cornelius, and 12 prizes were awarded in total having being drawn by Mr Morley and an array of child helpers!.  After a sun soaked, fun filled afternoon, a magnificent total of £2648 has been raised which will go towards helping the school in an array of ongoing projects. Thanks to everyone who helped in any way, and congratulations to all our prize winners.

In the run up to the Easter holidays, two competitions were running in school.  Fourteen children received an Easter egg each when they were judged the winners in the design competition, by Mr Morley. The winners from each year group were chosen, and are pictured with their prizes.
The "guess the mini eggs" competition was won by Sandie Beattie & Nikki Cooke who both correctly guessed there were 286 eggs in the jar - the prize will be shared equally between them!
Thanks to everyone who entered both competitions which jointly raised £140.
