Summer fete - 6.7.12

With so many events affected by the rain over the last few weeks, we were determined that the fete would go ahead before the end of term so we went indoors to beat the dreaded water once again. It was a bit cramped in the limited space we had at out disposal however we were overwhelmed by your amazing support. We raised an unbelievable £771.82 in an hour and a half! Thank you to all the parents, granparents and carers who rallied round at the last minute to help pull it all together. What a great team I have, thank you. Mandy

Enabling us to continue a tradition of more than 20 years, we are now lucky to have Caroline Stow (a teaching assistant at the school), and Anne Steadman (her mother and former supervisor at Queen Elizabeth Grammar School)  to cater for us!

A big “thank you” to everyone who supported us in the provision of the Christmas lunch  – we couldn’t do it without each and every one of you.
