This is the PTAâ€™s last fundraising push of the academic year and it's a biggie! We have all missed seeing the children being able to use the outdoor pool over the last 2 years â€“ quite apart from the opportunity to learn a valuable life skill, it is such a source of fun and enjoyment! Happily, the plan is to open it for this year's summer term although there is extensive work required to ensure that the pool is useable prior to this. A new pool liner and improved surfacing around the pool are estimated at a whopping £9000!
The school are looking at a variety of means to raise funds, and the PTA (and Mrs Harris) have agreed to organise â€˜Circuits for the Pool' specifically for this reason. This is open to all children in the school and will take place throughout the day in different class groups. The children will be asked to complete a course of sports circuits which require different skills (e.g running, balance beam, push ups, skipping etc). The idea would be for friends, family, carers or work colleagues to sponsor per circuit or a lump sum â€“ whatever is possible. We hope that the children will find this event fun, and seeing as it is a sport event, every child can come to school in PE clothes on that day.
We are very aware of how generous the school parent and carer community have been with contributions to school projects and we thank you sincerely for your ongoing support.
Donating is easy using the online form below â€“ you can even nominate to â€˜gift aid' your donation which boosts your contribution even more!
