Television Raffle—your chance to win a new TV

Raffle tickets for our 32inch LCD back lit Toshiba Television are now selling well. Tickets cost £5 and are available from the school office. The draw will be made just before half term—on Thursday 11th Feb. We are hoping to sell a minimum of 100 tickets.

We will shortly start to collect Sainsbury’s Active Kids vouchers again. The box will be in reception for your vouchers. We have benefitted hugely in the past from the scheme and have managed to get a great deal of PE and activity equipment. Please encourage your family and friends to collect vouchers whenever they are in Sainsbury’s.

Do you feel you could offer further support or help to Manor Green Primary?

Friends of Manor Green are always looking for more volunteers—either from people willing to join the committee, or one off support with fundraising events. Not only does this help the school, but it is great fun, and an ideal opportunity to meet other parents and make new friends. If you feel you could help please contact the Chairman—Greg Tyer at chairfomg@hotmail.co.uk. Also if you have any contacts in local businesses that may be willing to support the school please let Greg know.
