It’s almost time for the school fair – this time next week everyone will be baking and getting themselves ready to win some of the fabulous prizes on offer in the Bake Off (we hope!).
In the meantime if anyone has any bottles of wine or tombola prizes could you please hand them into the office at either campus or contact Tracy Gillespie.
We will need some help to set up and man the Parent Council stalls such as the Tombola, Water/Wine, Lucky Dip etc and to serve teas and coffees. If anyone would like to volunteer their services please get in touch with Tracy Gillespie. We need help from 9 in the morning until the fair starts at 12 and then from 12 til 4 but you only need to give an hour if you want to join in the fun. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. Please get in touch if you are able to help out and we will agree a time that suits you
The next Parent Council Meeting will be held on Monday 1st June at John Muir Campus, school library at 7:00 – 9:00pm – All welcome!

The School Fair will be held on Saturday 30 May between 12 and 4pm. This year we are raising money to buy a canopy to make the outdoor classroom at John Muir Campus accessible in all weathers.
There will be the usual school stalls where you can buy items your children have made along with a table top sale and watch out for more information on the Great DPS Baking Competition in next week’s email.
The Bouncy Castle Man will be there – it’ll cost £7 per wristband for a whole afternoon of fun. There will be discounts for purchases of 3 wristbands or more. There will be more information about this on the Parent Council website shortly.
In the meantime we are looking for donations of adult and children books and bottles of wine and tombola prizes – there will be more information on what to do with donations next Friday but in the meantime please have a look through your drawers and cupboards for any unwanted items that the Parent Council could use.
Do you, or your children, belong to a club? We are looking for teams of 6 – 8 to take part in our tug of war contest – we have some fabulous prizes on offer for the winning teams (both adult and child) so please have a chat with your friends/team mates and get ready to take the strain!
Many hands make light work and we can really use some help in the run up to the school fair and on the day – if you have a few hours to spare and would like to get involved with our team please contact Tracy Gillespie.
There will be more information about this exciting event next week.
