PTA Newsletter Autumn/Winter 2016

As we approach the end of Term Two our minds begin to focus firmly on Christmas and spending valued time with family and friends, not to mention eating copious amounts of food, drink and of course the giving/sharing of presents!!!!

Christmas is of course a particularly exciting time for the little ones and this was no more obvious than at our annual Christmas Fair where they enjoyed the many games and stalls available, super deluxe BBQ and Santa’s grotto!  The event does however require a lot of planning both before and on the day so I would like to take this opportunity to again thank everyone who assisted with this, including the many families who attended and supported the event.  We raised a staggering £1,850 which will of course continue to assist Blackboys Primary School with projects going into 2017.

The PTA has itself had a bit of a transition period of late and special thanks also go to Tjadine Ullmann and the school staff for welcoming Jemma and I into the fold.  Hopefully we can build on the already excellent service provided by them and help make the school the ‘best it can be’.

Before I sign off and eat another mince pie, can I please make you aware that there will be a PTA meeting in early to mid-January (dates to follow) where further events, including the ever popular quiz night, will be discussed.  You are of course all welcome!!!!

I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
