I want to start off with a big thank you to all those who helped at this year's Summer Fete whether you donated sweets, helped set up/tidy up, made resources or spared us your time. Events such as these require lots of planning and without the support of our school community we wouldn't be able to achieve this. This year I want to say how extremely proud I am of the many children who gave up playtimes to help organise, make, sort, paint and most importantly keep me going and inspired! I believe that Summer Fete's are all about the children and they should be as involved as possible. I felt that the day was a success- not only was it cost effective for us as a school, but I hope for you as parents/carers that we kept prices as low as possible. The African Animal experience was our biggest expense and what a great experience it was getting that close to the animals for that price! I hope that you enjoyed it as I know I did!
I would like to end on another big thank you to all of you who helped your time and contributions make a big difference.! I therefore hope that our 'Friends of Horizon' PTA will continue to grow so that as a school community we can continue to work together for our children.
Next Big Event Friends of Horizon will be hosting is the Christmas Fete 2017 come and speak to Debbie in September at our next meeting! remember friends of Horizon appreciates equally any commitment big or small!
Thank you Debbie
For Comic Relief 2017 (24/3/17) we raised £140.60! by wearing something silly to school for the day!!!
A big thank you to all of those parents/carers who either made cakes or bought some! we raised 167.18 for our chosen charity 'Tiny Tickers' http://www.tinytickers.org/
The charity is particularly close to one of our families, so it was great to have such a brilliant response! The children also had an assembly that week on the charity so to raise awareness as well as money! please take a look at the photos with your child and see if you can spot your cakes!
Our four year 3 judges tasted the cakes and the three winners are as follows:
1) Amber Year 5-The judges thought this chocolate cake was scrummy! they loved the home made effort and pink icing!
2) Zach Year 6- This home made sponge won on the basis of how fluffy and light the sponge was! well done!
3) Brandon year 1- These delightful fairy heart cakes were a popular choice! the chocolate chips inside were an extra special treat! well done!
Thanks again for everyone's efforts and support!

Who? This year the PTA have flown solo in organising the christmas fayre. We would like to say a big thank you in advance to those parents who have dedicated their time and efforts into this event.

If you feel you can contribute in anyway or would like to join the PTA please speak to one of the members (details found on PTA page).
Where? The christmas fayre will take place in the school hall. There is a 50p entry fee per family which will be collected on the door. Please collect children as normal on the playground and make your way to the fayre through the school hall doors!
