A superb night was had at the races. Well done and thank you to everyone involved for raising £1650 once again an amazing amount of money for one evening. We are extremely grateful to our parents and friends for their outstanding generosity.
Well done all quiz goers, £1,300 was raised at our recent quiz night. This is a superb achievement for a single evening event, helped in no small part by the Pudding Auction. A new record was set with £95 being bid for one of the puddings. Thank you to everyone who helped with cooking, serving, organising, questions, auctioneering, setting up, cleaning up and to everyone who came along and spent their money. This will be going towards this year's project of improving the learning enviroments in school.
