                                       JUBILEE TEA PARTY
Everyone still seems to be buzzing about the Jubilee Tea Party and we have had lots of comments from
children and parents saying how much they enjoyed themselves! It was great to see everyone from across
the school come together to celebrate and as an added bonus we managed to raise over £1000!!
There were so many people involved in making the party happen. Donna and Rachel would like to thank the
following people:

      All the teaching staff - for all of your hard work in monitoring who had paid, giving out tickets,
       selling raffle tickets, making party hats and keeping us up to date on numbers. We appreciate how
       much work went into this and we were pleased to see so many of you at the party too!
      Mary, Nicole and Kate from the office - for your endless assistance!
      Mr Huckle - for helping us set up and clearing up about 500 straw wrappers!
      Kat and Andrea from 1MS - so much help in sourcing supplies and the 7am sandwich making start!
      Kate from Woodpecker for your great posters and ticket designs
      Steve from Woodpecker - DJ Extraordinaire!
      Chris, Linda, Seni, Susan and Gail - committee members who always give great support no matter
      All of our helpers on the day for mucking in and getting the job done; Woodpecker: Marcelle, Jaz,
       Muna, Alev, Bev; 1MS; Tyrone, Anna, Maria, Suzanne, Fatima; 1S; Angela, Christine, Jo, Anitha; 1J:
       Aggie, Biba, Kat, Claudette 2M; Skevi, Skevi's Mum, Lutvia, Elaine; 3C: Carol, Marie Year 5: Kat,
       Maria, Penny, Ayse, Kat P.

        Apologies if I have left anyone off the list, I know that there were other parents who
           helped tidy afterwards and others who offered help and gave some of their time
                                where needed and for this we thank you!
                    These events would just not be possible without all of this help.

               Thank you to all the parents who brought in cakes for the cake sale too.
                         You are always so generous, and these all sold out!

                  SUMMER FETE – SUNDAY 8th JULY 12pm – 4pm

This is the main fundraising event of the EPSA calendar but also a great day out so please ask all
your friends and family to come along and join us for a great afternoon.

£ FOR £ Do you work in a bank or financial institution? It is likely to offer ‘£ for £’ funding. This is a
scheme whereby the participating company matches the money raised on the stall that you work on... all you
have to do is fill in a form and help out for a while on one of the stalls. Some companies need a couple of
weeks to put this in motion so please contact your employers asap.

BUSINESS SPONSORSHIP You may own or work for a company with a community awareness policy. It
would be great if you could ask your company for sponsorship of our fete or you may be able to suggest a
company that may be able to offer us some assistance and we will contact them.

BROCHURE We will be producing an A5 Summer Fete Brochure again this year so if you, or anyone you
know, would like to advertise in it the costs are £30 for a half page and £50 for a full page. Please
forward a .JPEG of your image to and send your cheque made payable to EPSA to
the school office. Final deadline for advertisements is Friday 15 th June.

RAFFLE DONATIONS If you would like to donate any items or cash for the raffle please make sure that
they are handed into the school office, for the attention of the EPSA.

VOLUNTEERING Your class reps will now know what stalls they are running so please put aside some time
on the day to help out. Also we are always looking for people who can volunteer on the day: to help set up,
clear up or do some face-painting, tattoos etc. Whatever your forte, please let your EPSA rep know and we
will put it to good use!

Please do your design on an A4 sheet of paper. (Portrait orientation with the height greater than the
width). The cover must contain the following items:
