PTA Summer Fair!

We were so lucky to be blessed with such glorious sunshine on Saturday for the PTA Summer Fair.

It was very well attended with many highlights! The school choir sang beautifully. They sang a song in honour of the Year 6 children leaving which was very moving. Their performance of the jubilee song ‘Sing’ was amazing! A very emotional performance! They were followed by the Knutsford Rock Choir. They were inspirational! 

The afternoon was a very relaxing family affair with lots to attract all age groups. I would like to extend a huge thank you to the PTA committee and their army of volunteer helpers.

Events such as these do not take place without commitment and enthusiasm. However, they could certainly do with more help! The PTA play an important role in supporting the children and families of this school.

They do a fantastic job and have organized some wonderful events which certainly have contributed to developing strong friendships between children, adults and families. Any money raised from these events is essentially a bonus.   

Kara Dexter has done a fabulous job in stepping into the large shoes of Mark Lee-Kilgariff as Chair for the summer term. The committee and volunteers have worked well together to ensure that such an important event in the school calendar is successful.

The PTA AGM is scheduled for Wednesday 19 September at 7pm. Please put this date in your diary and come along to find out more and support the continued work of the PTA for the benefit of your children and the whole school community.

First a huge thank you to everyone who gave up their time to set up, run and dismantle the fair. It was hard work but I hope everyone agrees that it was worth it. The sun somehow shone for the duration and everyone seemed to have a wonderful time.

We don't have an exact total raised but it will be about £2400. So the fair was a success in every way. If you are thinking about buying name tapes, please have a look at www.easy2name.com website. If you enter Egerton Primary School PTA on the order form the PTA receives 20% of your spend.

Looking ahead to the start of next year we would like to invite you all to the AGM on Weds 19th Sept at 7pm. Don't panic, coming to the AGM doesn't mean that you have to organise every event next year! Attending gives you the opportunity to meet other parents and to offer your ideas, expertise and opinions. You also get a glass of wine and some cheese!
