Raffle Tickets and prizes

Thank you for all the lovely gifts sent in so far.  It’s still not too late to send in items suitable for the hampers.  We would also be very grateful if parents could persuade local businesses to donate vouchers that we could use as raffle prizes. Please pass any such prizes to Hannah in the office, any time from now until 9th December.

Please don’t forget to return money and completed ticket stubs to school, if you would like more tickets, let Hannah in the office know. Please return any unsold tickets so that they can be reused.

The Raffle draw will be Live in the PTA Facebook group on Tuesday 13th December.


Christmas Performance

We are having a dress rehearsal on Monday, please could you ensure that your Childs costume is in School so we can practice ahead of the production on Tuesday 6th December.

We are not issuing tickets this year for the performance as we hope that there will be enough room for everyone to attend the Church 😊


Robin Hood pantomime 14th December

Don’t forget to pay £5 for the pantomime trip to Hannah in the office, we are still outstanding a few payments for this trip which has been subsidised by the School and PTA. Payments can be made by cash or cheque (made payable to Hornby Church of England Primary school).  This payment will not be set up on School money.

These will be provided by Lucy and Danielle in the kitchen, on Tuesday 13th we will be having a Christmas dinner with all the trimmings, on Friday 16th we will be having a party buffet with a selection of different foods.
