Harvest Celebration

Thank you to everyone involved in making our Harvest Assembly so successful and to St John’s for kindly letting us use the church.  We are very proud of all the children.  They all worked so hard in such a short preparation time.

 

The donations of food were collected from the church by the Julian Trust for the homeless after the     assembly.  Thank you for giving so generously.  We would like to say a big thank you to Joe’s Bakery who kindly baked and donated the Harvest Loaf for the children to have back at school, it was greatly appreciated.  We hope you enjoyed it as much as we did!

 

Save the Date—Macmillan Coffee Morning

 

We are delighted to invite you to our coffee morning to raise much needed funds for Macmillan Cancer Support. To find out more about the work of Macmillan Cancer Support please see their website at www.macmillan.org.uk.

Our coffee morning will take place on Tuesday 19th November from 9am – 10.30am at Chester Park Infant School. We would like to invite parents, carers and other family members from Chester Park Infant & Junior Schools.  Please let all your friends and family know!

We are asking for donations of cakes (large or small, baked or faked!) which can be sold on the morning with coffee or tea. Cakes should ideally be brought into school on Monday afternoon at pick up time.

Any cakes left at the end of the morning will be available to buy at the end of the school day.

We hope you will be able to join us for this special coffee morning, a chance to chat, relax, eat cake and support a very important charity.
