WE LOOK FORWARD TO YOUR SUPPORT IN 2020
2020 Update & Events for your Calendar
St Patrick's Day Celebration - 21 March 2020
It is with regret that we have taken the decision to cancel the St Patrick's event that was scheduled for Saturday, 21st March 2020. I am sure you will appreciate the current situation is too unpredictable to continue.
We would like to thank those of you who kindly made donations or purchased tickets to support this event. Your support is much appreciated. We are working with the school to arrange refunds for tickets already purchased.
Wishing you and your families good health.
Spring Fair – 2 May 2020 - more information to follow.
Krispy Kreme Doughnut Sale – Date to be confirmed.
Summer Ball – 12 June 2020 (TBC)
As you may be aware, traditionally the PTFA have hosted an Autumn Ball/Dinner & Dance in November. We have decided to host this event later in the school year and we have a provisional hold on Friday 12 June at the Marriott Langley.

It’s such an easy way to support us, so please do sign up (further information on how to set this up is included with this newsletter). I am pleased to report that we now have 19 supporters who have raised £903.48 between them. Thank you! Just think what we could achieve collectively, if we all signed up. The school earns money when you shop online. It’s as simple as that.
The 400 club has been running for years and pays for the running costs and the uptake of the St Bernard's mini bus. Parents, staff and friends buy shares for £15 each (share price is £15.50 inclusive of a 50p admin charge). There are 2 to 3 draws per year with a 1st prize of £400 and a 2nd and 3rd prize dependent on the size of the pot. The next draw will be at the Spring Fair on 2 May. You can buy shares every year via ParentPay. Please note that if you usually purchase your shares via ParentPay, these do not renew automatically. You need to continue to purchase these annually via ParentPay.
Many thanks for your attention. We look forward to working with you for the benefit of our children’s education. We are always looking for new ideas to fund raise, events to bring parents together, fun experiences for the children and VOLUNTEERS to help out at our different events (even for 30 minutes).
If you would like further information about joining us, donations, or about the events above, please do not hesitate to get in touch via email (email@example.com) or contact me on 07939 263 738.
Thanking you in advance.
Chair of St Bernard’s PTFA
