    Dear Parent/friend,

    Firstly many thanks for all your Christmas card orders. This proves a successful fundraiser every year and orders are all being processed, to ensure cards are received in good time.

    Current restrictions mean we have to look for appropriate fundraising activities.

    This week every child in the school with receive a tube of Smarties. Once they have eaten them, we would ask that each family attempts to fill at least one tube with 20p coins!

    Once a tube has been filled it can then be returned to school!

    We hope that you all support this idea in these strange times.

    After half term, we plan to hold our AGM to update you on how we have helped the school in the last 12 months, and to generate some new ideas for the way ahead. We will keep you informed of that in due course.

    Again many thanks for all your continued support to our school.

    Take care,

    Ampertaine PTA
