PTA AGM – Thurs 12th July

The evening will commence at 6.30pm and we hope it weather stays good we will be outside of Beech Class. Drinks and nibbles will be provided.
As well as a chance to hear and see how the funds you have helped to raise have been used for the benefit of the children at our school, the AGM is also an opportunity for you to elect the PTA Committee to represent the association throughout the forthcoming academic year. Nominations should be sent in advance of the AGM.
For existing committee members willing to stand for re-election and for anyone wishing to stand as an Officer or Ordinary Committee Member for the first time, please return the attached slip as soon as possible via the school office.
Some of the committee members are stepping down and the positions of Secretary and Treasurer will be vacant. We look forward to seeing you on Thursday 12th July

Parents are welcome to stay and we would welcome extra help too please. Email pta@wessexprimary.org or contact Cath or Gemma via Facebook to let us know if you’ll be attending too.

Please ensure your child has a water bottle that we can refill if needed.

Christmas Fair Thank YOU!

Sorry this Thank you has taken a few days coming, we wanted to be able to tot up the floats and give you all a fairly final figure too.

There were a lot of slots to fill this year but we did it, thanks to all of you that signed up and got involved giving the Christmas Fair an amazing array of stalls, games and activities. There was a great buzz and atmosphere with everyone pitching in, even some extras who stepped in on the day itself as they could see the Bottle Tombola was going crazy! We couldn’t have done it without you all (and your kids) support and donations, and it makes it all worthwhile when you see everyone enjoying themselves. Your help was really appreciated and the Year Group stalls, activities, Grotto, Raffle and catering brought in a lot of profit for the school.

Thank you also to everyone that came along and supported the school on the day by emptying their pockets, a very crucial role!

We’ve received loads of lovely feedback. Happy to hear more of your feedback (good or constructive) on this very quick survey https://tinyurl.com/xmasfair2017Survey

We raised a fantastic  £3283.88 for the school PTA funds. This allows the PTA to give the Teachers an amount to spend on a present for each classroom and Nursery, plus Christmas Crackers and drinks for the Christmas festivities in school.

Other recent fundings include Playground Development, Mathletics Subscriptions and possibly a large amount needed for the school minibus so you can see how important these funds are.

Thanks again for all your support. If anyone would like to keep more up to date with PTA involvements please also join the PTA Committee Facebook group:

Merry Christmas!

Christmas Fair Poster

A HUGE Thank you to all the children who put in such great efforts creating posters for the Fair. As you’ll be able to see from the Posters around the school it was really hard to choose the top 3 for the winning Grotto tickets, but the winners are:

– Inaaya Fontanelle
– James Berry
– Talea & Alexea Moraitis

The PTA will be printing you an Advance ticket for 11am 2nd December so you can be first in to see Santa in the grotto. No other tickets will be given out in advance, it will be first come first served on the day. Thank you!

If anyone is able to PRINT this poster and DISPLAY in their car or house window between now and the Christmas Fair please click on these links for a better quality

Would be so lovely to see this everywhere you drive around Cox Green and encourage other members of our community to visit our school!
