Coffee morning - 18th December
We will be having a coffee morning on the 18 December where there will be a chance to do some last minute Christmas shopping and you will also be able to buy some craft that the children have made.
All profits will go directly to the preschool so that we can buy some new equipment. We are delighted to have a Phoenix card stall as well as an aromatherapy stall.
There will also be a bring and buy cake sale and if anyone wants to bring a cake to sell that would be great.
We will also have a raffle so if anyone would like to donate a raffle prize please bring one along before the 18 December. Please note that the 18 December is the last day of term
19 December
The preschool leaders will be meeting for parent consultations on this day. Please sign up to see your child’s keyworker. The lists will be up in the corridor from 8 December.
The lotto launch last month was a great success and the draw took place in front of the parents at the end of the month. Ruth won half the money and the other half went to buy new resources for the children, a big thank you to everyone who took part. The next lotto will take place at the coffee morning on the 18th so if you haven’t picked your lucky square yet please make sure to have a go before the 18th.

Our next meeting is the 3 February so why not come and see what we do.
We are also looking for a Chairperson for the Committee. Any parents who would like an active role in the day to day running of the school or anyone who would simply like to enhance their CV please speak to Ruth.
