It’s easy to forget just now much goes on in the course of a school year and this has certainly been a busy one for Burton Joyce Primary School.
It seems a lifetime ago that we welcomed new foundation parents to the school with Tea and Tissues.
Since then, there have been discos, non-uniform days, film nights, a quiz and this year we even squeezed in a new addition to the calendar with a fashion show. Phew!
Then there are the community events that we’re so proud to be a part of.
We’re so pleased that the Garage Sale Safari has become such a welcome date on the village calendar and it was lovely to see some new faces at each of the school fairs this year too.
The sun shone all day for the summer fair and everyone enjoyed the stalls, games, refreshments and even a visit from a fire engine.
The result of all this activity is a grand total for the academic year of £16,500.
This is an outstanding amount and we really couldn’t do it without the support of everyone at the school and in the village.
Whether you donated a raffle prize, came to the fashion show, bought raffle tickets in the Co-op or helped spread the word about the Garage Sale Safari, a massive thank you from all the pupils and us.
We hope you have a wonderful summer and look forward to seeing lots of familiar faces in September.
If you do have children joining the school in September, then do please consider joining us.
We’re a welcoming group and it’s a great way to get to know the school and other parents.
In the meantime, don’t forget to like us on Facebook. Search for Burton Joyce Primary School PTA to keep up to date with what’s going on.
See you in September.
