As I write this blog, I am enjoying the Key Stage 2 Silent Disco.
I am not in the disco.
It is in the hall next to my office.
But it is silent, which is why I am enjoying it so much!
This does, however, give me an opportunity to praise and promote the excellent work done by our amazing PTA The Friends of St Peter’s. Last Friday the children in Key Stage 1 and Early Years had a great time at their Greatest Showman themed fundraiser, joining in with plenty of songs from the show, and even a couple of numbers that appear on the Radio 2 playlist.
The Friends of St Peter’s will soon be gearing up for their major fundraiser and biggest event of the school year, the annual and very much enjoyed St Peter’s Fest on Friday 28 June from 5:30pm to 8:00pm. All families and friends of the school are warmly invited to the Wild West themed event, and the Dolly Parton tribute act will be joined by class group dance routines prepared by our sports coaches. There will be plenty of stalls and sideshows as well to entertain all ages from toddlers to grandparents and everyone in between. Ticket details will follow in due course, as will information about a pupil non-uniform day on Friday 21 June 2019 (our Countries of the World Carnival Day) where the donation for coming in own clothes is traditionally a bottle filled with any liquid (soft drink, shampoo, grown-up pop, etc).
The Friends of St Peter’s are always looking for volunteers to help with any task, small or large, and welcome any time that people can give up to help lay on events and raise money for the school. If you would like to find out more, please contact the Chair Mrs Charmaine Bennett via the school office, and she will gladly give you any information you need.
