Newsletter 12 – 30th November 2018
With just 3 weeks left of this term, Christmas is fast approaching and we have lots of exciting activities going on at school. Make sure you have all the important dates in your diary.
Rock Around Christmas – Christmas Production
Tickets will be available from the school office from Monday 3rd December at £2.50 each. We will have our usual two performances, one at 1.30pm, young children are welcome at this performance and 6.30pm. Due to the number of seats available we are only able to allocate two tickets per family for the evening performance in the first instance. We will have a waiting list which you can put your name down for additional seats. All proceeds from the sale of the tickets will go to the school for enrichment opportunities for the children.
In the coming days we will be sending home information regarding drop off and collection at Eype Centre for the Arts.
Christmas Fair & Social Friday 7th December
A plea….we are looking for volunteers who are able to help set up, or help with the refreshments or manning a stall.
Raffle tickets for the Christmas draw have been coming home in book bags this week and plenty more are available to buy from the school office at £5 a book. We would be grateful for donations of raffle prizes and chocolates for the chocolate tombola.
Friends’ Festive Bake Off
The Friends’ are running a festive bake off competition. You can make any type of festive cake, prizes will be awarded to a pupil from each class for the best tasting and looking cake! Entry is £1 and please bring the cakes in next Friday morning to be judged.
Wreath making & Gin and Jazz Evening
Many thanks to all those who helped to organise and worked so hard to put on both Gin & Jazz and Wreath Making over the past week. Both events were a huge success and raised valuable funds for the school. We will send out a total raised once confirmed. Thank you to all those who came along and supported us, thank you to Rachel Roberts and the Gatsby Gang for their fantastic entertainment and to DJ James Baker for coming along and playing his tunes, and of course the brilliant Jazz trio that kicked us off. Huge Thanks you to Symondsbury Estate for letting us use the beautiful barn for both of these events.
Choir’s public performances!
The choir will be singing this Saturday at Symondsbury Estate Christmas Market (2.15pm). A reminder to be there 15 minutes before, wearing school uniform. My thanks to the children (and staff) from the choir who have agreed to give up their time to attend these events and spread a little Christmas magic.
After school clubs
Please note that the following clubs have now finished for this term. However, watch out for new ones after Christmas. Construction, Gardening and Archery.
If you wish your child to have the hot Christmas lunch provided by Local Food Links then please make sure you order before Tuesday 11th December.
