Dear May Parkers,
Now we are all officially BACK TO SCHOOL, we are having an informal PTA meeting on Friday 15th Sept, 9-10 am in the Orchard Hall Cafe. Kath will be fattening us up with her usual spread of treats and fruits and drinks. It's a chance to catch-up, meet new faces, eat cake and moan about the weather. We will also be looking for feedback on last term's fundraising, ideas for this next term and plans for spending the money raised.
We know it's difficult to come in work hours- so we may organise an evening get-together if enough people get in touch. Contact by email: MayParkPTA@gmail.com, Facebook: May Park School PTA, tel. Sadie 07748486747.
Bring your purses, bring your ideas, but most of all, bring yourselves.
ONWARDS AND UPWARDS!
PHEW! That was AMAZING. Our second International Food & Music Festival was an absolute WHIRLWIND, despite the, ahem, traditional English Summer Weather (torrential rain, gales, plagues of frogs etc.). Pretty much all the food, lovingly prepared by our amazing parents, grandparent, carers, kids and master chefs was sold and scoffed. The generosity of donations at the cake stall nearly caused a riot. We had chillis, falafels, samosa, pakora, curry, biriyani, jerk chicken, oh the list goes on. A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!
Our Jumble Stall had clothes, books, toys, plants, jams, uniform and homewear. It was like Aladdin's Cave. But with more sneakers. Save any old clean and good quality jumble you have this summer and we can do it again in the autumn. Get in touch (Sadie 07748486747) if you need it picking up and storing.
DJ Snoopy serenaded us with his sweet calypso sounds while we ate, and Dharmbir gave us a drumming masterclass. The Pop-Up Somali Kitchen mums not only fed our bellies, but our souls, with singing, drumming and dancing. I'm not sure any of us have recovered from the moving recital by the Teachers' Choir. I sincerely hope Mr Bull has recovered from the soaking he got from the water balloons...We can only apologise if your home is still covered in glitter from our Glam Glitter Bar and gorgeous Henna Stall. We're sorry (not sorry)! Did you win at the Human Fruit Machine, or on Hook A Duck? We hope so!
A HUGE thank you to all our generous donors for the Raffle. THANK YOU, Bristol Zoo, Lush Cosmetics, Captured Magic, The Greenbank, Este Kitchen, Number 12, Sweetmart, Pipal Tree, Babaganush, Hawks Gym, Dragonbird Theatre and Vicky Gatley. ONE MILLION thank yous to the bakers and makers, jumblers and drummers, singers and dancers. We all had a FABULOUS day, and raised OVER £1000! Let's DO IT AGAIN, soon! Yes?
