Dear Parents and Carers of St George’s,

The Wizard of Oz

We will be watching a live production of The Wizard of Oz on Friday 28 June. To celebrate the day and participate in the performance, children can wear either their own clothes or dress up as a character from The Wizard of Oz. Please do not feel the need to spend any money on expensive costumes.

Summer Diary and Fundraisers at St George’s  

We will be hosting a few fundraising events in the run up to the summer holidays. Please do your utmost to donate any spare items you may have, as requested below, and, more importantly, please try and attend if you are free. A lot of the funds raised hosting these types of events goes towards paying for school trips and other activities which we wouldn’t be able to afford otherwise.

Sports Day Monday 1 July

Sports Day for Nursery and Reception will be on the morning of Monday 1 July from 9.00am and for Key Stage 1 Key Stage 2 on the afternoon of the same day beginning at 2.00pm. Families are welcome to come and join us.

There will be light refreshments on sale.

St George’s Family Fun Night and Open Evening Tuesday 9 July 3.15 – 4.30pm

We are hosting a Family Fun Night and Open Evening for our school community on Tuesday 9 July from 3.15 until 4.30pm. There will be refreshments on sale and a range of games and activities for both you and your child to enjoy.

We will be having a tombola and raffle on the day. If you have any items to donate for, for example: toiletries, games, sweets, chocolates, bottles or any other suitable items, please send them into school with your child over the next couple of weeks and before Monday 8 July. Thank you.

If you are attending any events in school, please bring as much loose change as you can to pay for any items. Thank you.

No Gifts into School

This is just a polite reminder that, as part of our Poverty Proofing Policy, we do not accept any gifts for staff into school. Please note, we also do not accept the exchanging of any gifts between our Reception and Year 6 Buddies on school premises. Thank you for your continued support with this policy.

If you wish to discuss any item in this letter or any other matter, please do not hesitate to contact school.

Best wishes,

Mrs Anne Bullerwell
