It’s the last full week of term and with it is our last blog of the academic year.
This week the children enjoyed their Summer Fete which couldn’t have happened without the generosity of your donations of toys, teddies, sweets and time from all those who volunteered – thank you!
We think it’s fair to say the children had a fabulous time judging from the laughter and chatter. “This is the best day of my life!” and “I loved it!” were just a couple of statements we heard! Check out the photos of the event below and on our dedicated @claremontprimarypta social media pages!
Whilst there was no entry fee for children to attend, we are still collecting donations so should you wish to make a contribution, you can still do so here: Summer Fete | Localgiving. Thank you as always.
Next week, it might be the last week of term, but there are still a couple of things happening!
1) The Tea Towels have landed and are now quarantining at school. So if you ordered one, you can expect it to come home with your child/children before the end of term.
2) Tuesday 20th July: 2nd Hand Uniform Donation Morning: for any good quality uniform you no longer need. Please bring it to the Banner Farm Road field between 8.30-9.15am.
Looking further ahead to September (already?! I hear you cry!)
1) We will have our first 2nd Hand Uniform Sale of the year online over the first weekend 2nd-3rd September.
2) The PTA will be hosting socials evenings for the new parents who have joined the school in the last couple of years.
3) Last but not least our AGM will be held in September, to which everyone is invited!
We are ALWAYS keen to welcome new people to join our small charity volunteering efforts so please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you think you might be interested! In particular, we would love to hear from anyone who can help with sales/corporate sponsorship, grant research/writing and running events (especially if you’d like to see the usual Clarefest and Summer Fete events come back!)
Finally, it just leaves us to say a HUGE thank you for all your support this year. Despite everything, you’ve enabled us to commit nearly £17,000 to the school, for which they are massively grateful. This went towards:
Continual support of ICT provision £15,000
£100 per classroom for teachers to spend £1,400
Crisps and water for Year 6 residential £12
Contribution to Year 6 Yearbooks £361
Year 6 Leavers BBQ
We wish you all a wonderful summer break and look forward to seeing you in September.
