PA UPDATE: Tombola prizes and manpower needed!


This week we had our PA meeting to discuss the ongoing plans for the summer fete. It’s our biggest fund-raiser of the year and a chance for us to raise plenty of money to make some great purchases for the children to enjoy.

I’m pleased to report that all is going well, with many people having brought books and Bric-à-brac into the school office, and a promise of more to come. Unfortunately we haven’t any Tombola prizes yet! If any of you could bring in a prize: a bottle of wine, a box of chocolates, bubble bath, a book etc, that would be much appreciated!

We are also still looking for volunteers on the day to help man several of our stalls. If any of you can give a little of your time on the day please let me know.

2013-fete15This week is my last shout out for anyone wanting to advertise in our fete brochure. 3000 brochures will be distributed around Hethersett and Wymondham so this will be a great way for local businesses to reach out to new potential clients.

Deadline for artwork is 20th March, so not long left. As usual contact me at charissa@taygar.co.uk

The events we run are so important as they enable us to buy equipment and pay for items the children would not otherwise have. But to do this we really need YOUR support. Watch this space for details of our next round of exciting PA purchases for the school!

Many thanks again to you all for your continued support.

Charissa Garner
Chair of the PA

Year 4 face their fears

Year 4 have been learning how to write recounts in their English lessons.

Having been inspired by Emily Gravett’s unusual book: ‘Little Mouse’s Big Book of Fears’, the pupils recounted their own fears from when they were little and presented them in the style of a scrapbook page.

They all enjoyed telling each other their fears and presenting their ideas in a different and fun format.

Sports Results: U14 netball v Langley School

Netball-HOHSThe U14 netball team played valiantly against a strong and very tall Langley team this afternoon, but unfortunately it resulted in a defeat for us.

Player of the match was Isabel who, playing as Centre, maintained great fitness and teamwork throughout. It must also be noted the final goal of the match came from a fantastic long-range shot by Mia.

Well done ladies!
