Flourishing in learning and love
Welcome back and welcome to all new parents. The VSA (Victoria School Association) arranges fun events for the children and grown-ups, enabling us to all get together socially and raise much needed money for the school. Funds raised last year paid towards the replacement of the playground equipment and a trolley of iPads, as well as each class getting a bursary each term and many other things.
Everyone - existing and new parents - please join in to help with these events which rely entirely on volunteers. Some existing volunteers are moving on and therefore we need new helpers to be able to put on the events. You can put in as much or little time as you want, many of us fit it around work and other commitments. It would be great to have more men involved too.
The existing events are all easy to help at or run as we have briefings from previous similar events. You might have some new ideas too.
We would love to see you all to talk about what goes on and the events lined up at a meeting on Tuesday 25 September, 7.45pm at The George. If you can’t make it, let us know if you want the notes or can offer support (find the chair, secretaries, treasurer or your class rep in the playground or email us), and come along next time (usually the third Tuesday of the month).
A first request: we make Victoria School apple juice to sell at Christmas using apples from the school allotment. Please come along to help collect apples from our allotment on Friday 5 October at 3:00pm by the top playground with big bags to put the apples in. If you or a neighbour have an apple tree with apples to spare please collect them up and add them to the haul - email firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange to hand them over.
Chair - Neil Ainsworth (Reception parent)
Secretary - Josie Drath (Reception parent) and Lisa Greenfield (Year 1 parent)
Treasurer - Kirsty Suggett (Year 1 and 2 parent)

We're always happy to to hear from parents who want to get involved.
