  4. Summer Fete 2019

    • Still working towards the 15th June 2019 for the Summer Fete

    • AS has contacted Corby Radio & St John’s Ambulance - awaiting a response

    • Discussed doing a BBQ, however this would likely require the PTA to supply and man the BBQ equipment - will discuss further a later date

    • AS/MS to look into whether any local pubs would supply an outside bar.

  5. Any other Business

    • HA has kindly supplied the reindeer toy to be used for the Name the Reindeer competition

    • Children in Need 2019 - this is on the 16th November. WJ has advised that Mrs Hankings normally arranges events for this with the School Council

    • Summer Fete 2018 money finally received from Stanion Village Hall

    • LM has suggested an Easter Treasure hunt around the village. LM has also said she would happily take the lead on organising that. To be discussed further.

    • AS discussed a Movie Night sometime in March 2019. Initial thoughts were to use the school hall and show and put on a sing-a-long Greatest Showman. After discussion, we will look into having 2 movies showing, one being The Greatest Showman and the other one TBC (something for an even younger audience) and these can take place within classrooms.

    • AS suggested a Clothing Collection in January to help raise funds for the PTA/School. LM to look into companies that would do a school collection

    • AS suggested a Summer Fashion show where a clothing company/retailer would come into school and the children would model the clothes to parents. To be discussed further.

    • Fundraising ideas

      1. AS/WJ discussed the PTA helping to fund the refurbishment of the school library. An amount is still to be decided, but WJ suggested that once decided the school could cover the initial outlay with the PTA then giving an amount once raised.

      2. Help fund new pens and colouring books for wet playtimes

      3. SH suggested children decorating a wall in the library and paying for the privilege (in order to help fund the refurbishment). WJ advised he will discuss the idea with Mrs Hancock as she is leading the project.
