SPORTS DAY

 

What a fabulous Sports Day, and the sun stayed out.
Thanks to everyone who supported the PTA by visiting our refreshments stall, it was nearly a sell out and takings were just short of double what they were last year.

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED FOR DISCO - Thursday 21 May 2015

 

We really need volunteers to help at the Disco on Thursday 21 May 2015 - can you help?  Don't worry - no dancing required.
LCC introduced new guidelines for Safeguarding Children earlier this year some of which impact on the way PTA events now run, so it is important volunteers are 'signed up' in advance of the event and are able to arrive a little early for an event/safety briefing. But............don't worry, it will still be absolutely fantastic fun for the kids and dancing and fancy dress are optional for adults!!!

If you can help we'd love to hear from you either via this page or email desfordpta@yahoo.co.uk.

Thanks. You'll be making a lot of children very happy who really love our discos.

Magic Show success

 

Well, the children were thoroughly amazed at the Magic Show yesterday - a big thank you to David Oakley and A Box of Tricks for keeping them (and a few teachers and adults) so entertained. We raised over £200 for the PTA which will be well spent..................more news on that coming very shortly.

 

The show was thanks to the fundraising idea of PTA member Alex Lewis which we were able to turnaround really quickly. A big thank you to Alex for the suggestion and the work she put into this.
If you have a fundraising idea, please get in touch - desfordpta@yahoo.co.uk or contact us via FaceBook.

Time for another big THANK YOU

 

 

Thanks to everyone who supported the Village Quiz and Easter Disco we're now over £5,000 into our fundraising target this year. We're hoping to raise as much money as possible (£10k would be amazing) to support the school with IT and music equipment needed for curriculum work, amongst other things. If you have a fundraising idea then please get in touch - desfordpta@yahoo.co.uk - and, again, THANK YOU

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED FOR EASTER DISCO - Thursday 26 March 2015

 

We desperately need volunteers to help at the Easter Disco on Thursday 26 March 2015 - can you help? 

LCC introduced new guidelines for Safeguarding Children earlier this year some of which impact on the way PTA events now run, so it is important volunteers are 'signed up' in advance of the event and are able to arrive a little early for an event/safety briefing. Unfortunately, turning up on the night and asking to stay is no longer an option. But............don't worry, it will still be absolutely fantastic fun for the kids and dancing and fancy dress are optional for adults!!!

If you can help we'd love to hear from you either via this page or email desfordpta@yahoo.co.uk.

Thanks. You'll be making a lot of children very happy who really love our discos.

VALENTINE'S DISCO - Thursday 12 February 2015

 

Thank you to all the families and staff that supported the Valentine's Disco last night. Love was certainly in the air, along with a lot of sherbet sticks and chewy sweets........we're guessing there were a few KS2 children that may have struggled to sleep last night!!!!

INAUGRAL PTA FAMILY QUIZ NGHT A SUCCESS!

 

Thank you to everyone who came or supported the FAMILY QUIZ tonight. Lots of fun packed into 2 hours and for only £1 entry. Congratulations to the 'Champion Chandlers' who we hope will be back next year to defend their title!

We had a fantastic quiz master - thank you Juliette Minto - and we owe a big thankyou to all who donated raffle prizes and their time in anyway, and those who worked unseen on the event. We'll let you know how much we made, but what a fun way to raise money for the benefit of our kids.
