News from Great Shefford PTFA

Easter bunny Shefford PTFA

 With Bingo, a pop up café and a busy Easter bunny we have had a productive few weeks!

Huge thanks to our community for supporting the bingo and pop up café, we have raised an amazing £1359.85 with both events. It was wonderful to see our friends in the community, and so nice to enjoy social time with restrictions have lifted.

We plan to do more pop up cafes, and I’m sure bingo will be back as well as events, trips, discos and BBQs.

Just before Easter, the Easter Bunny spent the afternoon in school, and with the help of some of the PTFA team, they organised an Easter Peg Hunt. Rather than hide chocolate, we hide pegs with each child’s name on, and they work together to find everyone’s name. In exchange for their peg, they receive an egg. It was a fun afternoon, and lovely to see the children enjoy the garden and sunshine.

Our fund raising efforts have been focused on invigorating a garden space in the front area of the school.

Our next Bags2School collection will be on Wednesday 18 May. We are looking for donations of men’s, women’s and children’s clothes, paired shoes, handbags, belts and accesories (no uniforms, workwear, pillows, duvets or pieces of fabric please). The more bags of donations we collect, the more money we get paid. Please bring your bags to the school by 9am on Wednesday 18 May or contact me to arrange local collection.

Many thanks,
