A massive THANK YOU to everyone who helped out with the Itchen Abbas Parents events and fundraising this year. We had a fantastic Christmas Fair and a very entertaining Quiz Night and as a result, despite the global pandemic, it’s been another really successful year for Itchen Abbas Parents with funds raised of £4,827.
We have donated £4,667 to the school which has funded:
- a new outside educational area for Reception
- sound recording equipment
- maths resources
The Itchen Abbas Parents raise funds for equipment and facilities to improve the school and learning environment. These are items that the school would otherwise not be able to afford.
As well as help and ideas for fundraising activities we’re looking for two additional committee members for next year. It doesn’t take up a lot of time but does make a big difference to the school.
If you would like to be involved either in the committee or on a more casual basis, or if you have any good fundraising ideas for the new post-covid world, please email your name and mobile number to: Jake@jakeridley.com
It was wonderful to see so many of you and your families at the Christmas Fair on Saturday despite the rain and we hope you all had a lovely time.
With your help we raised an impressive £2761.47 for our school.
A huge thanks to you all for donating so many wonderful things, baking wonderful cakes and for coming along on the day. We really appreciate it and look forward to seeing the funds raised put to good use in the school.
The Friends AGM is being held Friday 21st July in the front playground of school at 1.15pm until 2pm when the summer fair starts.
We will be voting in new members, so please do come along if you can.
Our Summer Dance was a fabulous night and together with the Raffle raised over £1,200 - thank you so much to everyone who helped make it so enjoyable.
Sports Day Cafe
Parents and children were able to relax in the sunshine after the excitement of Sports Day and enjoy a selection of delicious home made cakes which were provided by parents. Thank you so much for all the donations of beautiful cakes, we are delighted to announce that we raised an AMAZING £264 for the Friends.
The Friends are pleased to announce that we are throwing a Summer Party for parents, to celebrate the end of the school year. We'd like to get everyone together for a relaxed evening with a bar, cocktails and burritos. There will be music too. The party will be held on Friday 14th July at Easton Village Hall.
The tickets are £12.50 each and are available from the School Office from Monday 5th June, when we come back to school after half term.
