PTFA Skittles Night, Saturday 25th March, 7 - 10pm, Village Hall
If anyone is able to help with Skittles Night this Saturday, it would be very much appreciated. We are looking for volunteers to set up from 5pm and then help with the bar, kitchen, raffle and skittles through the evening. Please let Jess know if you can help.
Thanks so much for your support.
The PTFA Christmas Jumper Sale / Swap will take place on Friday 25th November at 3.30pm in the small playground at school.
If you have any clothing donations please hand them in at the school reception from this week.
The PTFA has a fantastic opportunity for you and your family to get into the festive spirit. We are able under the charitable status of the school, to purchase tickets for 'Aladdin’', at the Princess Theatre Torquay at a greatly reduced price.
We have a block booking for Thursday 15th December at 6pm. The ticket price is £19 which gives a donation to our PTFA. The usual price for this performance is £25-30!
If you are interested please give cash in an envelope to the school office / cheque or bacs payable. If you wish to confirm your interest or have any further questions please contact Holly on firstname.lastname@example.org
Closing date Monday 14th November
Please join EasyFundraising...
We are a member of Easyfundraising - they give a donation to the PTFA each time you shop online from over 7000 different companies including Sainsbury's, John Lewis, Argos, M&S, ebay, booking.com and many more.
You just need to follow the link below to register. It will offer you a pop up - if you say yes, each time you go to a site that offers a donation, it will notify you. The donation does not cost you anything.
Each donation may be small but at the moment, with very few of us using it, we are raising about £25 a month. If we all do our Christmas shopping via Easyfundraising, we should be able to make a really good amount for the school.
You can also pass the link on to friends and family and get them all donating whilst they shop!

Friday 21st October, 3.30 - 5pm, The Church
We are looking forward to the Witches and Wizards Party on Friday. We have booked the large meeting room at the village hall for children to get changed into their costumes after school. The party will be held in the Church this year.
Please ensure that all children are accompanied by an adult. We will be using the toilets in school so please make sure that you take your child over and back if they need to use the facilities during the party.
We would welcome a donation of £3 per child - we will have a donations bucket at the door.
We have some brilliant activities planned from wand decorating to mandrake modelling and taking on the giant spider Aragog. If you are able to man an activity for a 30 minute slot, please contact Ann on email@example.com or 07809605453 to pop your name down. If everyone could also chip in to help tidy up at the end, it would be much appreciated.
Thanks so much.
We are organising a morning to help the school get some jobs done. We will be cleaning, DIY-ing and generally sprucing. Think DIY SOS, slightly scaled down and without Nick Knowles.
All volunteers hugely appreciated. Bring kids along (and any relatives who happen to be quite handy). No need to stay for the whole morning. We will provide all the kit and tools needed plus tea and biscuits. Thank you!
Sunday 16th 9.30-11.30
Please support our school eco committee and join us at the village coffee morning. Bring along your books (children & adult) to exchange and buy some excellent preloved games and toys. All funds raised will be forwarded to the Eco Committee.
Firstly a big thank you to everyone who supported Pizza Night on Friday. We made a brilliant £1348.60. A special thank you to the pizza team - Kieran, Alex and Simon - who probably won't want to see another pizza for a very long time!
We have our next PTFA meeting on Tuesday 4th October, 7.30pm at Sneydhurst. Everyone is welcome. This will be a fun one as we are making plans for the Halloween Party.
So far this term the PTFA has funded a visit from Dartmoor Zoo, who brought in some creatures for Birch Class to meet yesterday.
PTFA NEWS - Tuesday 21st September
Join us for Pizza Night at the Village Hall this Friday from 5 - 8pm. There will be live music, a bar and activities for the kids. If you can come along, please register so we know how much pizza dough to make - www.tinyurl.com/PTFApizza Everyone welcome - please pass the link on to friends and family.
We are going to hold a kids tombola on Friday so we are looking for donations of new books or toys. If you have any unwanted gifts looking for a new home, they would be very gratefully received. Please pass donations to one of the PTFA Committee.
Any volunteers for making cakes, setting up or helping on the night are very welcome. Please speak to Jess if you can help - 07753826631.
Thank you very much.
