Christmas Fayre 2017

Wednesday 29th November 2017

We would like to invite you to Derrymount’s Christmas Fayre at our Churchmoor Road site.
During the morning the pupils will be taking part in various activities as part of our “Christmas Around the World” theme, experiencing cultures and tastes. This will be followed by many activities happening throughout the afternoon for which we would like to invite you to join us. We plan to start at 1:30pm and finish by 4:30pm.
We would like to offer you an opportunity to purchase a stall on the day to present any craft, games etc. For £10.00 per stall.
We do need your help, but mostly we would love for you, your family, and friends to join your children and have fun.
A coffee shop will be running so we would appreciate any cake donations.

If you have any items/prizes we could use for a tombola stall or any chocolate for the raffle please send them to school. The school council will be running a games/toys/book stall. If you have any of these unwanted items in good condition please send them into school.

Christmas Chocolate Hamper 2017

Dear Parents/Carers

We are hoping to put together a Christmas Chocolate hamper and we are asking for donations of chocolates for this. The hamper or hampers, depending on the amount of donations will then be raffled off to fundraise for the school.

If you would like to send something to school as soon as possible this would be greatly appreciated.

We will be drawing the raffle during our Christmas Around the World Fayre on Wednesday 29th November 2017, tickets will be sent home with the children shortly which we would appreciate you buying or selling to friends and family.

We hope to have lots of exciting prizes this year. If you work for/own a company that might be prepared to donate a raffle prize, please give details to us.

Many thanks

Fundraising coordinator

2017 Awards Evening

Once again we are holding our annual awards evening on Thursday 9th November 2017 to celebrate all the achievements made by our children over the last year.  The evening will include pupils that left at the end of the summer term 2017. Pupils must be accompanied by an adult aged 18+ who remains responsible for their own child/children.

The evening will start promptly at 6.00pm with presentation of certificates and awards. This will be followed by a buffet and a disco.  The evening will finish at approximately 9.00pm.

We hope you will be able to support this evening and share in the pride, joy and celebrations that the pupils have earned over the past year. This is a real opportunity to recognise how much we value the achievements of the pupils and to have fun.

To help us with catering arrangements and seating requirements, please complete the reply slip below.

I look forward to seeing you there.

Nut allergies

Can we please remind all parents/carers that we have pupils in school on both sites that have a serious allergy to nuts, therefore under no circumstances should there be any type of nuts or anything containing nuts brought into school.
