PTA KEY NEWS

26th April: 

  • Thank  You!

Thank you again to Susan for organising the Bag2School collection last month, and also to everyone who kindly donated. This has raised a very appreciated £120.

  • Family Barn Dance - This Saturday (27th April ) 2.30pm to 4.30pm at Kinsbourne Common Hall

    We are looking forward to a fun afternoon with music and entertainment provided by Hedgerow Tipple, and refreshments including beer, G&T, wine, soft drinks and a range of snacks. We have been asked by the church not to use the car park as it is for their use rather than Kinsbourne Hall.  As I’m sure most of you will already know there is a car park up the road by the mini roundabout that can be used if you are driving.
    Any questions please email Lucy and Julia on  woodendptaevent@gmail.com

 

  • Second Hand Uniform Sale Next Friday 3rd May from 3pm under the Picnic Shelter. 
If you have any uniform in good condition to donate, we'd be very grateful; please leave at the School Office on any day.
 
 
  • Movie Night -> Friday 10th May  -> Tickets Selling Fast!
    Look for an email from your Class Rep with details.

    Reception to Year 2 are invited to watch "Sing" (U rated) in the Infant Hall  finishing at 5.45pm. Year 3 to 6 are invited to watch "Incredibles 2" (PG rated) in Junior Hall finishing at 5.50pm. The movies will begin straight after school, so children attending will be escorted to the hall by their class teacher.
