We discussed friend’s page of the school web site which needs up dating. The new school web page goes live this week so Karen and Jo will meet with Guy next week to load friend’s page with new info. Karen proposed we have a dedicated friend’s email address to make communication with us easier for parents and the wider community. Guy will speak to Karen Olley to set this up.
We discussed future fund raising events we all really missed the Christmas bazaar last year and felt with our larger group this could be possible proposed date 10th December after school. We will meet next week to start planning. Laura will start inviting stall holders, Jo will email Claudia re cake stall. Sue offered to start getting parents to help on stalls. Guy is going to decide on a date for non-uniform day to bring in items for tombola and hamper.
Karen proposed setting up an easy fund raising scheme were when you shop on line you enter a code at the check outs and they make a donation to school fund with Christmas coming we all felt this was a good idea. Karen g will set this up
