MacMillan Coffee Morning

It has become a tradition to hold a MACMILLAN COFFEE MORNING each year. This year it will be on FRIDAY 3rd OCTOBER in Chatsworth Hall between 10:00am and 1:00pm. Many Year 7 students will be helping at this event in preparing the hall, greeting visitors, serving coffee (and washing up!) and socialising with visitors. It is an excellent example of active Citizenship in which all students are encouraged to involve themselves. There will also be a variety of musical and dance performances so it is a great opportunity to come and support your child. It would be lovely to welcome a number of you on that morning: admission will be £1.50 inclusive of unlimited coffee/tea and biscuits. There will be various cakes stalls, a raffle and tombola as well as a variety of other stalls on offer.

PTA Promises Auction

Although we had an early response from local businesses and attractions we have failed to secure may ‘promises’ from parents. Therefore rather than auctioning the goods or services that have been pledged at an evening event we will be inviting parents to participate in a sealed bid auction.
