Friday 10th November - Storks Film Night
Our second film night of the term was another huge success. I think the children all really enjoyed it, although it was a little warm in the hall !
Many thanks to the staff and to Jerry De La Cour for screening the film again.
Thanks to all of our volunteers who were also put to work during the night . . Sssshhhhhhh :-)

Wow, our last entry was over a year ago. Apologies to everyone for not updating the site, but we are back on it again now.
We use our Facebook page a lot to keep you up to date with information, but we appreciate that not everyone is on Facebook, so we will remember to update this page too !
So what have we been up to since last September you may ask . . . well, where shall we start !
We have held a couple of disco's, film nights, a bingo evening, and another successful summer fayre. We also tried a new idea, which was a 'Golden Ticket' chocolate sale, selling chocolates for the two best days of the year for us parents - Mother's & Father's day ! These chocolate goodies went down a storm with everyone too and with the additional incentive of possibly winning a further prize, Willy Wonka style, there were plenty of smiling Mums, Dads and loved ones on these two days.
As well as our continued support of book tokens for the tea parties, maintenance of the fish tank, water for sports days and Year 6 leavers books, our main aim last year was the refurbishment of the school library. It now looks amazing. Have a look at the pictures and we hope you agree it looks fab ! Here is a link to the Guernsey Press article run around the opening of the new library http://guernseypress.com/…/a-new-chapter-opens-for-vauvert…/
We have also recently purchased some equipment to support the school in their outdoor learning. From pop up gazebos to shelter from the sun (or rain) To waterproof trousers for KS2 to encourage them to get out in all weathers as part of the new 'Big Picture' curriculum.
Maths games have also been purchased for KS1 and they are busy enjoying these new challenges along with some outdoor construction kits and some more Ukuleles.
We also assisted the school by helping to fund some Samba drums which are already in use by the Year 5's (I'm a little bit jealous and eager to have a go myself!!)
We have recently made another new purchase of an outdoor table tennis table which will be placed Chloe's garden.
We are so pleased that we are able to support the school and our children with these additional pieces of equipment or refurbishment of special areas.
But, we couldn't do it without YOU. We'd like to take this opportunity to once again thank you all for your continued support of the PTFA events, whether it be attending meetings, helping at events, buying raffle tickets or baking cakes.
Every little bit really does count, so THANK YOU
Sunday 25th September 2016
A team of parent and teacher helpers gave up their Sunday morning to come and paint the wall behind the school. Thanks for brightening the Infant passageway up - it looks great and really shows off the fabulous plants and new flooring. A job well done!
Summer Fayre: 25th June 2016
The bunting has been taken down, the cash has been counted and we made a profit of £3218.71! We're thrilled with this, and the children will all benefit from an improved library, which will be refurbished over the summer holidays.
Thank you to the committee, all our helpers and everyone who came along. We hope to add some photos in due course.
Gardening Morning: Sunday 22nd May
Thanks so much to everyone who came along to help tidy up the garden - it's looking great.
Quiz Night: Friday 20th May
Our Quiz Night was a great success - we had a lovely time and raised over £900! Many thanks to Robin Bailey and Lester Purdue for being our quizmasters (we don't feel the same about drinking tea after our 'taste test').
Bingo Night: Thursday 24th March
Another great family event, watch this space for another one!
Film Night - Friday 29th January
Our last Film Night was as popular as ever and we raised almost £600!
Christmas disco with trimmings - Friday 11th December
This was a great success and we raised over a thousand pounds!!
Beetle Drive - Friday 24th April
We raised £98.15 and had lots of fun. Miss Le Page, our Beetle Drive expert, was missed!
Mums' Film Night - Friday 20th March
Our children's film nights are always a success so we thought we'd try something new: a Mums' Film Night. We watched Dirty Dancing, had a drink or two and came away with some lovely goodie bags. Watermelons were carried, ice creams were eaten, raffle prizes were won and a Patrick Swayze/Baby dance routine was attempted (it didn't quite look like this)!
