PLEASE SUPPORT THE PARISH CHRISTMAS BIZARRE ON SUNDAY THE 2ND DECEMBER.

HALF PRICE THANK YOU BOOK FAIR:

In the lead up to Christmas, as a thank you for all your support with previous book fairs and for supporting the PTA to raise money for home school reading books, I have arranged for a half price book fair to be held in school the first week in December (3rd-6th December). Please come along and purchase some great books to encourage your child(ren) to have a love of reading and to help raise more funds for school to help with our ongoing library fund. Thank you.

Miss Holtom.

MESSAGE FROM THE PTA:

We are pleased to announce the Polar Express event is now ready to go.

The event is on Saturday 1st of December with two showings - 2pm & 4:30pm. The school will be looking its very best with a true Christmas atmopshere provided by the PTA which is not to be missed - the school gates will be open 30 minutes before the film starts. We kindly ask that all children attend in their PJ's to feel the full magical experience the movie has to offer. Tickets will be £6 per child which includes a memorable photo for them to keep. Tickets will be available to buy from the office - please ensure the correct amount of money is given in an envelope with your child/children's name on the front as no change will be available from the office. Please remember to bring the magic ticket with you on the day. Santa will be there along with our very own school photographer, Miriam; Santa will be avaliable for a visit after the film finishes. All the children will receive a hot chocolate, a cookie & a candy cane.

Can we ask that all children are accompanied by an adult. The reindeer tuck shop will be available at the back of the train with extra treats to buy including popcorn, drinks and snacks. For the parents, we will have our very own train bar providing the usual festive treats such as mulled wine, Baileys hot chocolate, beer, soft drinks and hot drinks, a chocolate fountain and mince pies. The Christmas music will be playing and a great atmosphere is definitely guaranteed. So please come and join us for a truly great Christmas event and kick your Christmas off with an amazing magical experience.

As always we require a little help so if you fancy assisting on the day please get in touch with us at the PTA, the office or our Facebook page at St. Ambrose Primary School PTA. It's all only possible with a full amount of volunteers. Thank you for your continued support and we look forward to seeing you at the St Ambrose Polar Express event.
