PTA Newsletter Winter/Spring 2017 2

With spring now firmly upon us it’s busy as ever for our hard working PTA!  First on the agenda is the inaugural Framfield & Blackboys School Stoolball competition which is set to take place on Saturday 13th May.  This will be the first time we’ve organised such an event with our friends over at Framfield School and we hope that this will become an annual event.  The competition will begin at 2pm on Framfield Recreation Field and will involve the four colour houses from the two schools enabling the children and parents alike to mix and socialise.  On site will be a BBQ and drinks tent so let’s hope the sun comes out to make this a truly memorable occasion.  Children are encouraged to book their place asap and a sign-up sheet will be made available in the Blackboys School office.

Moving towards the summer and it’s the big one, our annual Summer Fair.  This is taking place on Saturday 17th June between 1pm and 3pm.  There will be lots of stalls, games, a raffle, BBQ and much much more so please come along and support your school.

Finally, I would just like to say a big thank you to all those who attended and assisted with the quiz night back in March.  A special thank you goes out to Mrs Withers for cooking up such a tasty curry and to Mr & Mrs Lynch for hosting.  As always this was a fantastic night with the male teachers coming out victorious!!!  We managed to raise an amazing £550 which will of course go towards future school projects.

As previously mentioned Mrs King will be leaving us at the end of the year but as most of you now know so will Miss Stevens who will be taking up a new teaching post closer to home.  Both have been great servants to Blackboys School and as such will be sorely missed.  Please keep Friday 14th & 20th July firmly pencilled into your diary as we look to give both a fond fairwell.

Thanks again for all your support.

Blackboys PTA.
