MRS PRESTON AND MISS TAYLOR ARE ST ANDREW’S SUPERHEROS!

 

Last week the children watched the video of Mrs Preston jumping out of an aeroplane at 3,000 feet! They were so amazed and excited to see this, and the atmosphere in the hall was electric.  It was so inspiring for the children to see our Assistant Headteacher doing something so courageous to raise money for our school!  Mrs Preston you are a superstar!  Well done!

Last weekend, Miss Taylor, our Deputy Headteacher, braved tremendously difficult weather conditions to complete the Great North Swim in Lake Windermere. Unfortunately we don’t have footage of this, but we have shared photographs on the school website with the children, and again this is another example of outstanding citizenship, doing something so difficult in order to raise money for our beloved school.

I personally could never have done either of these amazing tasks, and I am very grateful to and very proud of both teachers – they are fantastic role-models for our children!

Thank you to all our generous parents and carers who have donated to our cause. I will be in touch soon to tell you exactly how much has been raised.

MRS PRESTON AND MISS TAYLOR RAISING FUNDS FOR SCHOOL – HOW TO SUPPORT THEM

 

A few weeks ago I wrote to you with the news that these two members of staff are about to take on special challenges in order to raise much-needed funds for our school. Mrs Preston is going to do a tandem sky-dive and Miss Taylor is doing the Great North Swim in Lake Windermere.

Many schools as you know are in the same position as us due to government spending cuts, and you will remember our Chair of Governors letter to you about this in March.

To support them you can use the link on the school website www.justgiving.com or bring your donation into the school office.

I am overwhelmed with the support that we have already received from some very kind and generous parents and want to say a huge thank you to those who have donated so far.

RAFFLE TO RAISE SCHOOL FUNDS

 

The Sullivan family have kindly donated a signed Wigan Warriors rugby ball as a raffle prize to raise money for our school. Both daughters of Mr and Mrs Sullivan attend our school and the money raised from the sale of the raffle tickets will go directly to School Funds to help enrich the education of the children of St Andrew’s in this difficult economic climate.

This is a fantastic opportunity to get your hands on a signed rugby ball from the 2017 World Club Champions! Tickets are only £1.00 per strip and can be purchased from the School Office.

Thank you for your support and good luck!

MRS PRESTON AND MISS TAYLOR TO THE RESCUE!

You will be aware by now of the funding crisis in schools across the country. Everyone at St Andrew’s is pulling together to make sure that our children still benefit from all the opportunities and support that we have always provided for their education and welfare.

In order to raise funds for school, Miss Taylor will be doing the Great North Swim, and Mrs Preston has decided to jump out of an aeroplane!

We hope that you will sponsor them when the time comes, and we will let you know soon how to do this.

I just wanted to let you know in advance because the children will be talking about it! Watch this space – more news to follow.
