Christmas Fair
On Wednesday, we will have the final Parent Forum Coffee Morning
Afternoon … from January, it will return to the normal day and time of
Tuesday 9am to 10am.
Thank you for your support last
Friday for the Christmas Fair!
It was an incredibly long and
busy day for the Parent Forum
volunteers, and they worked so
hard to make sure the children
had a wonderful time!
This Wednesday from 2:30pm, there will be a Christmas Celebration
for the Parent Forum, school will be providing some festive nibbles as
a massive THANK YOU for all of the support that we receive from the
Parent Forum throughout the year. Everyone is welcome, we hope you
can come!
Goodbye, Mrs Woodhouse!
On Friday we say goodbye to a treasured member of staff.
Mrs Woodhouse has worked at St Catherine’s for 16 years! The school
will not be the same without her.
Mrs Winterbottom will take over Mrs Woodhouse’s duties when we
return to school in January.
Payments at the Office
A common request we receive at the office is for a receipt to be given.
On very rare occasions, money does not make its way to the right
department, resulting in confusion.
We have thought hard about how best to tackle these issues:
From January, if you are paying something to school, you must
queue at the office, make payment and receive a receipt. We will
record every transaction that passes through the office.
There will be no post boxes and no plastic money bags for parents
to use.
You will not be able to pay anything at the classroom door, other
than bun money.
You will not be able to send your child with money in their bag.
Payment must be made at the school office.
If you want to avoid the queue, you can pay online at
The Parent Forum will be
counting the proceeds this
week, and we will let you know
soon how much money has
been raised from both the fair
and the disco.
Christmas Raffle
We are having a raffle this
Christmas: the tickets will be on
sale for 20p each at the school
office until 9:30am on Friday
From tomorrow, children can
buy their tickets from the office
at lunchtimes. The raffle will be
drawn on Friday afternoon. The
proceeds from the raffle will go
towards the Gary Matthewson
Memorial Fund. Thank you for
your support!
Milk and
After School Clubs
Remember, Friday is the
deadline for paying for Milk or
After School Clubs at the office.
You have until Sunday 27th
December to pay online.
