A hundred excited children, and lots of even more excited adults, rushed into the Northover Hall last Friday, and bought cakes, buns and biscuits galore. We think everyone found something nice to nibble on, and the teachers were on the same all-day-sugar high as their students!! The raffle proved very popular, and plenty of people went home with a prize and a smile. Thanks for coming along everyone, your support is so valuable to our school, whether you bought or made a cake, we're thrilled with you!
We'd like to thank the helpers, the PTA, and in particular Catherine Watson, for the Trojan hard work in organising, and working at, the event. Those raffle prizes didn't just find their way to our cake sale on their own!! 3rd - 6th Classes were incredible, giving up their regular school day to bake, bake, bake, and providing some small and tasty treats for our pupils to buy. (There was a piece of Rocky Road missing, as a teacher ate it before it got to the sale, whoops!)
The school would also like to thank all the local individuals and businesses that donated money and/or prizes to our raffle. We cannot be more grateful, as that money will be used to enhance the education of all our pupils, so a big THANK YOU to you all.
Finally, to 5th and 6th Class, we want to give you a big thumbs up for selling SO MANY CAKES and RAFFLE TICKETS, and for cleaning the hall afterwards...sorry you had to miss out on your lessons, even though none of you seemed to mind!
