PTA Update May 2017

Published on 26th May 2017

The Fashion Show & Shopping Evening held on Wednesday 8th March was a really successful night. All who came thoroughly enjoyed themselves, and the models were fabulous!  We’re very much looking forward to holding another one… possibly early/mid November… just before the Christmas rush!

So… the figures for the Fashion Show….. drum roll please….. we made a profit of £421.25!!!!

Thank you to all our lovely models, you were all absolutely marvellous.

The Wine Tasting event held on Friday 24th April was a great success too. Unfortunately due to the change of date we were a little down on numbers, however we still had almost 80 in attendance and all who came had a fantastic time….. and they made enough noise so anyone would have thought there were 100 there!!!!  AND they were great spenders too!! The raffle alone brought in £445!!!

In total the Wine Tasting raised us £644!!! so well worth doing! Special thanks to Steve Roe for being an amazing panellist, host and for organising the rest of the panel pre-show and keeping control of them on the night! (Which isn’t an easy task when the other two panellist are the comedy duo Chair of Governors Paul Irons and parent Chris Gregory!)


On Saturday 15th July the Fernwood School PTA will be hosting the first RACE NIGHT.  (Doors open 6pm, first race 6.30pm)

Tickets are £3 each or £10 for a family ticket and are available by contacting  (The family ticket is max 2 adults & 3 children).

Soft drinks, sweets, cakes and hot dogs will be available on the night (vegetarian sausage option) and bring your own drinks!

Come and join us as we ‘bet on the horses’ ….  so bring along plenty of good luck!!


Pre-Loved Uniform

Back by popular demand the PTA will be selling ‘Pre-Loved Uniform’ at the Year 6 Induction evening and during the summer’s Pop-up uniform shop so please donate any unwanted uniform items (clean and good condition please!).   Please label PTA and hand into the school office.


PTA Meetings generally run the first Tuesday of the month 7-8.30pm in the Staff Room…. pop in and see if it’s for you!
