Term 4 Teaser
No, we can’t believe it’s almost Term 4 either! With your help, we have raised over £7,000 so far this year, so we have lots of fun plans for Term 4 to help build towards our target of £40,000 for the year.
New School Lottery
We will be setting up a Claremont lottery through “your school lottery”. You’ll be able to buy a weekly ticket for just £1 and be in with the chance of winning a £25,000 jackpot each week, as well as a smaller prize (30% of Claremont ticket sales) that is guaranteed to come to a Claremont ticket holder. The PTA will also directly receive 40% of all ticket sales. Our first draw will be on Saturday 11th March - so watch this space how to buy your tickets!
After half term, the children will be drawing self-portraits in class which the PTA will turn into a bespoke tea towel for every year group. Parents will have the opportunity to buy 1, 3 or more, through our website. The PTA will order the tea towels and they’ll be delivered back to school, probably after Easter. It’s a wonderful memento and the PTA makes a small commission from each sale.
Cinema club is open for Years 1 -6 and next term will take place after school on Monday 20th March. The film will be DC League of Super-Pets (PG rating). Tickets will be on sale after half term.
After School Discos
We’re working hard to bring the discos back as we know how much the children love them. We are hopeful that Term 4 will see the first disco of the year, for Years 5 and 6, and then further discos will take place later in the year for Years 3 and 4 (April), Years 1 and 2 (May) and Reception children (June).
Easter Egg Hunt
An event held within the school day that is a real Claremont highlight for the children, especially when they spot our special guest, the Easter bunny!
This year, it will be on Friday 31st March. In the week before, the children will make baskets within their class and the PTA purchases thousands upon thousands of eggs which then get carefully sorted into each basket. The baskets are hidden around the school grounds for children to hunt out during their class’ timed slot.
Second Hand Uniform
Our monthly online sales will continue with the next one on 4th - 5th March. We will also have an in-person playground sale before the Easter holidays to help you prepare for the switch to summer uniform on 1st May.
Where will I get more info?
Further information on all of the above will be rolled out after half-term through the weekly bulletin sent by the school office, our website, social media and class reps. To get news directly, make sure you’re signed up as a member on our website and following us on social media.
In the meantime, we wish you a wonderful half term and look forward to seeing you after the break.
