As part of the BBQ on 13th July, we will be running a scavenger hunt for the children in the school grounds. We have received sponsorship for the last three years for the prizes, and would like to thank Malpas Dentist Practice, Thomas Classic & Modern and Jistcourt for supporting us. 
Is there a local business or organisation out there who would be able to sponsor the scavenger hunt in 2018?? We are looking for a total sponsorship value of £200 to purchase enough prizes for every child who participates. 
Can you help even with a small amount??

 

We will also need donations of raffle prizes, so if you can help please let us know.

Following the school reviewing their IT provision, they made a request to the PSA committee to purchase 15 google chrome books to be split between foundation phase and KS2, plus an iPad for the nursery.
We are really pleased to announce that thanks to all your efforts through Grow A Pound, £500 corporate sponsorship from Sopra Steria and a discount arranged by Currys PC World Cwmbran that we have purchased everything the school asked for and delivered them to school this morning!!!! 
A huge thanks to you all, Sopra Steria and to Currys PC World Cwmbran who have been a huge support to the PSA in helping us to purchase everything!!!!

21.04.18 Dear Parents and Carers,
We are all absolutely 'blown away' by the amount of money raised as a result of the PSA's 'Grow a Pound' initiative! To have raised over £2200 must have taken a great deal of effort and we are very grateful to all the children and families that participated. The funds raised will now boost the provision of ICT resources for the children's use ... perhaps with a few added extras as a result of this achievement. 
Thank you everyone!
Mrs Guest

Just a reminder that each family was issued with £1 by the PSA as an investment for the 'Grow a Pound' initiative. If this £1 has not been invested in an innovative scheme by your family it must be returned to the PSA immediately. Please place the £1 in an envelope marked clearly with your family name and return it to Mrs Kindred at the School Office on Monday 23rd April; every little helps!
Many thanks in anticipation of your co-operation.

 

18.04.18 Is there a man/woman with a van who can help us? B&Q Newport is donating some decking to the school but we need to collect it. If you can help us any morning next week and take someone from the school to B&Q to collect the decking. We can collect between 9am and 11am. If you are able and willing please respond to school or contact the PSA via its Facebook page. The maximum length of the decking is 2m. Thank you in anticipation.
