Here at Vauvert we have a friendly and vibrant PTFA. We hold meetings approximately once a term, which everyone is very welcome to attend, and we organise regular fundraising events and initiatives. This (Covid permitting) typically includes film nights at school for the children, discos, a Christmas grotto where children can purchase small gifts for their family and friends, and for the first time last year a party at Oaty & Joey’s, which we hired out exclusively for the evening.
In recent years we have been able to help fund:
In addition, we help with funding smaller projects such as purchasing recorders and ukuleles, the year 6 leaving books, the fish tank, and the Headmaster’s tea party, which rewards pupils who have shown great progress during the half term with sweet treats and a book token.
We're looking forward to running some fun events this term, Covid permitting of course! You will have seen details of the Smarties Challenge that is coming up shortly. Children will be given a tube of Smarties (or a box of raisins if you prefer) and once they've eaten the Smarties they can help you at home to earn coins to refill the tube. There will be a prize for the class that raises the most money! If your child manages to refill their tube quickly and wants another, we will have spares.
The Smarties are going home on Monday 31st January and should be returned to class for Friday 11th February.
We are also hoping to run a family party at Oaty & Joey's on Saturday 5th March in the evening. This is likely to be similar to the last party that we held there with stalls, a meat/seafood draw and food and drink on offer. More details will follow soon.
Please keep checking here, on our Facebook page and in the school newsletter for updates on the events that we will be running.
