WIN x-box and Playstation games plus other Summer Fete news!

Hello everyone!

Only two days to go until our Great British Summer Fete! Yes! We hope everyone is looking forward to it, forecast so far is dry, fingers crossed it stays that way!

Just a few friendly reminders…

Volunteers! We have been overwhelmed with the response for volunteers this year, it has been amazing! Thank you!

We do still need extra help setting up on Friday after school as well as Saturday morning and also tidying and packing away after the Fete. There are also still a few spaces on stalls that need filling, including Face Painting! If you can spare an hour or more, or whatever you can please get in touch. All volunteers get entered into a special and free Volunteer Prize Draw to WIN a bottle of champagne!

Tombola Bags, second hand books, DVDs & games plus crockery and jam jars with lids – if you are planning to but haven’t already done so please drop off at school by Friday first thing. There is a PTA table set up near the school office and you can leave your items there.


As you should hopefully have seen by now our Raffle this year is INCREDIBLE!

£2 a ticket can win you a hotel stay, a Sterling Silver and Rose Gold Pendant containing Welsh Gold worth £170, mega family days out, 4 rounds of golf at Foxhills Club & Resort in Surrey, plus Spa, Theatre, dining and retail vouchers and MUCH MORE!

Please see attached for ALL the prizes this year.

As well as our Raffle we have two new and exciting competitions this year…

1. Euro 2016 – Just a Minute!

You can win a hamper of football goodies including Fifa 16 – DELUXE Edition game on Xbox1 and UEFA Euro 2016/Pro Evolution Soccer game on PS4 PLUS a Nexo Knights lego set (we know this isn’t football but still A LOT of fun!), Lidls Football Stickeez and LOTS more!

Starting Friday after school (at the main entrance), and for just £1 a go you can pick out a ticket from our ticket bowl, there will also be the opportunity to buy tickets at the Fete. The tickets are numbered 1-90 and represent the 90 minutes of the Wales vs. TBD match at 5pm on Saturday. The winner will be the person who has drawn the same numbered ticket as the time of the first goal, e.g. if the first goal (either team) was 4 minutes 42 seconds the person with ticket number 4 wins!

If the Match goes into extra time or penalty shoot outs then we will put all numbers back into the bowl and pick one at random and they will be the winner.

We will announce the winner during or after the match.

There is no limit on tickets you can buy! Good luck!

2. Cream Tea for Two!

Check out the photos attached of the recent Royal visit to the school! If you can guess who is behind each mask then please let us know on Facebook and you could win a Cream Tea for Two at the Fete! If you’re not on Facebook but would still like to enter please email – anyone with one or more correct guesses will get their name put into a hat and a winner will be picked at random, 1pm on Friday 24th.

Phew! We think that is it! If you need to get in touch with us please email

Hope the kids have a great day off school tomorrow and we look forward to seeing you all at the Summer Fete!

Team PTA!

p.s. Don’t forget Non- Uniform Day this Friday!
