Meetings & Events
Autumn term 2020 fundraising is mostly virtual due to Covid:
Buying Personalised water bottles and hand sanitisers
Virtual Christmas raffle
Hide & Seek with Santa
Dates of meetings will be in the weekly school newsletter, on our Facebook Page – or do ask any of us for details.
Minutes from HSA meetings are available on request.
We’re always looking for volunteers to help at events throughout the year. If you can help, even if only for a single event, we’d be very grateful. Please contact us via the form below.
Class Cake Stalls
These are currently cancelled due to the covid pandemic
Throughout the year, each class will host two cake stalls, with the money raised going directly to the class to spend as they choose. The dates are on the website calendar and the office will remind you when it is your child’s class turn and the children will be asking you to bake and buy. Parents are also needed to run the cake stall for their class – collect float and paper bags from the office.
