500 Club Draw

Congratulations to this month’s winners:

1st Prize – Lottery number 2 – Julie Bailey (Thomas – ORSSC-8)
2nd Prize – Lottery 100 – Graham Taylor (Max and Harry – ORMBR-11 & ORSAS-9)
3rd Prize – Lottery 12 – Lisa Mottram (Beth – COSKA-10)

The cheques are in the post.

We only have 339 members out of a potential 1,300 and yet we were able to donate £2,800 to the PTFA last year, imagine how much more of a difference we could make to the children if more people joined, plus the prize money would go up. School has added a couple of items on their wish list (please see above).

You can see previous winners and how our contributions are spent on our 500 Club page.  If you know anyone who wishes to join the 500 Club, please download a membership form.

Discussions at this month’s PTFA meeting

  • We discussed the Summer Fair which is going to be held on the 18th June; it is the school’s 90th anniversary this year and we are hoping to celebrate it in parallel with the Queen’s birthday celebrations. If you have any ideas, please contact
  • We also discussed health and wellbeing in school; how we can improve its promotion in school?

Minutes and fundraising accounts can be viewed on the PTFA page.
