School Welly Disco - November 2018
Thank you to the PTA for organising 2 brilliant discos on Friday night. Both KS1 and KS2 were kept well entertained and danced the night away to a range of favourites and some more questionable 'tunes' played by the DJs. It was lovely to see the younger children dancing along to some old classics such as the Conga, whilst the older children enjoyed some chart hits as well as singing their hearts out to songs from The Greatest Showman soundtrack. I know 'Baby Shark' was belted out in both halls too - I think it's quickly becoming a firm favourite for children of any age!
Thanks again to all of the volunteers who helped out during the evening - it was a brilliantly organised event, enjoyed by all.
Summer Fayre 2018
What a glorious success this year's fayre was! The sun shone as the prosecco flowed and the sausages sizzled! From Punch & Judy to bouncy castles, penalty shoot outs and games galore, it certainly was a fun-filled extravaganza.
Huge thanks go out to the PTA for all of their hard work, with a special mention to Nat, Sarah M, David, Sarah D, Jo, Emma and Hannah for leading the project. It was no mean feat and took many, many hours to plan and prepare but we can all agree, it was brilliantly organised and ran like clockwork. As Mr Punch would say, "That's the way to do it!" There was also a great deal of support in the form of parent, staff and children volunteers as well as all the families who turned out to partake in the fun.
We have yet to tot up the takings but whatever the amount, it will be gratefully received and make an impact on the experiences and enrichment of the children's learning, so thank you!
Several of the raffle prizes were claimed on the day and we have the details of the winners who were not there so will be contacting them very shortly.
Thank you once again to the whole school community for all your support. It is very much appreciated.
Update: A staggering £3,593 has been raised! Thank you to all involved.
Sports Day 2018
Once again, Sports Day at Oldswinford was a fantastic event. It was wonderful to see all the children so excited and supporting and cheering each other on. Once again, the PTA provided some much needed refreshments - thank you!
Update: A fantastic £128 was raised! A special thank you to Mrs Gadd for your efforts on such a hot day.
