It’s hard to believe but we’re racing towards Christmas and our biggest fundraising event of the year, the Christmas Fair!!

It’s a fantastic opportunity to buy some beautiful Christmas gifts, try your luck in the raffle, or indulge in cake and coffee.

Santa will be joining us again this year and will be waiting in his grotto to speak to the children and give them a little Christmas gift !!  The elves are operating a booking system, so please buy your tickets as you enter the Fair. You’ll be allocated a time slot to visit Santa and tell him how good you’ve been this year!   But please get there early as Santa is always a sell-out.

We will have a variety of amazing stalls with great Christmas products for all ages

P1 (and New) Parent's Coffee Morning Friday 26th August

posted 24 Aug 2016, 13:06 by PTA Admin   [ updated 24 Aug 2016, 13:07 ]

OK so it's not quite Starbuck's - but if you fancy a coffee in a relaxed environment just before you pick up your hyped-up off-spring, this is the place to be.  You can't possibly be late for pick-up!  The PTA will be serving tea, coffee and biscuits  in the Lantern wing from 10.30am -12 noon.  Its a great opportunity to come and meet other parents before pick-up, renew nursery acquaintances and share anecdotes about starting a new school. Why not make an arrangement with other parents to meet here instead of standing out side in the wind, rain, or sunshine.  If you have questions about the school or want to know how you can support the school here's the place to find out. You don't HAVE to be new to the school either.. If you're a P1 parent for a second time or more your more than welcome..
