The Parents and Friends of St. John's School Association is made up of parents that are interested and prepared to help with fundraising events.
All parents of children at St. John's are automatically members of our PFA and we would love to see you at our monthly evening meetings in the school library to help us decide where the money we raise should be spent, and how to raise funds.
A ROYAL CAKE SALE
Thank you to everyone who came to celebrate the Royal Wedding with us at our Royal Cake Sale last Friday.
We are proud to announce that this event raised a GRAND TOTAL of £303.76 which is quite possibly the most we have ever raised from a cake sale.
We'd like to extend a special thanks to Kath Ashton-Mills and her superb team for their efforts in this event, and thank you to Reception and Year 1 for supplying the delicious cakes and to all those who came to enjoy them.
Our next fun event is our ST JOHN'S VIRTUAL RUNNING RACE
With Sports Day Season upon us, we thought it would be great fun to hold a virtual running race for our parents and carers, so who is up for a bit of friendly competition?
All you have to do is run your favourite route in Tunbridge Wells and show us how fast you did it. It has to be a 5k (3.1 miles) or 10k (6.2 miles). If you are feeling keen, you could even run both, separately of course!
You have between 6th June and 6th July 2018 to complete your race.
Entry Fees are as follows – 5K (£5) 10k (£7) Both (Special price of £10) Children’s 2K (£3)
There’s a medal for everyone who enters and there’s some great prizes for the fastest male and female of each race.
If your children would like to get involved they are invited to run 2k (1.25 miles.) There’ll be dojo points and prizes up for grabs!
We'll be sending out a School Comms with an entry form this week. In the meantime, dust off your running shoes, dig out your lycra and have a think about your route.
The big event next term is of course our Summer Seaside Special. A special newsletter will be coming out after half term with all the details, but in the meantime, keep Saturday June 30th free for 4 hours of fun and (hopefully) sun!
SUMMER FAIR - CATERER NEEDED
Has anyone got a foodie/catering company who would like to provide food at the Summer Fair on June 30th? We have two options already, (Pizza and Hotdogs) but would like to offer a third choice. Please contact us if you can help, there will be no pitch fee, but it would be nice if you could make a donation from any profits.
