Summer Fayre 13th July 10am

Hi all,

Please please have a toy clear out. We are planning a Toy Stall for the Summer Fair and need toys/games/jigsaws etc. They can be left at school or delivered to the Inner Green on the day.

And cake bakers, whilst I am sure your spatulas are at the ready, just a gentle reminder that we are looking for fairy cakes, cup cakes, flap jacks, tray bakes, any cakes to sell. These too can be delivered to our cake table on the morning.

The fair is this Saturday from 10am until midday.

Many thanks for all the great donations we have had so far – Please keep them coming!

Easter Bingo Wednesday 27th @ 7pm

Hi all,

Easter Bingo is looming. Wednesday 27th in the Memorial Hall from 7pm.

We need:

1 A couple of parents to run the refreshment counter during the interval.

Everything will be set up for you so it’s just a case of making and selling tea and coffee.

You still get to play bingo!!

2 Someone to sell the raffle tickets as people arrive.

3 Someone to sell the bingo games as people arrive.


If you are able to help out with any of the above please

email me back so we can make final preparations.


Many thanks,

Terena Hillary

Mrs Smitheram has organised two drop in workshops to design flags for the community art project. All ages are welcome but accurate scissor skills are required.

These are at The Memorial Hall on Thursday 7th February from 6p.m. onwards and Saturday 16th February from 1.30p.m.

This is an exciting project for all the community to become involved and will result in twelve flags for “The Prom”.

FOPS Newsletter December 2012

The Friends of Perranporth School

Dear Parents, Carers, Friends & Governors,


Any of you who came along to the Memorial Hall will know what a huge success the Christmas Fair was this year. Many thanks to everyone who helped make it such a fun event: whether you decorated cakes with your children, donated items, helped on the day or came with pockets full of money to spend. Everyone had a great time and Mrs Martin finally won a hamper – which we understand she has donated to the local Foodbank. In fact, we had so many items donated this year that we were able to make up not two but three hampers. The total raised will be around £850, similar to last year. Well done to everyone.


These have worked brilliantly, raising money specifically for the Pool Project. Initially just the FOPS Committee were baking cakes and then classes took turns. The cakes have proved very popular with the children and many parents have found their “inner baker”. We consistently raised between £50 and £70 a week. Thank you to everyone who baked or ate.


We recently held our AGM and as some of you may be aware, Robert Wiltshire decided to step down as FOPS secretary after two years in the role. He has worked extremely hard to raise the profile of FOPS and encourage more parents to involve themselves in fundraising for the school and Swimming Pool Project. The committee would like to thank him for all his efforts. He has been replaced by Terena Hillary (mum to Samuel in Davy class, Jessamy in Trengrouse and Guy in Penhaligon) and Julia Georgelin (mum to Jessica in Davy, Jake in Trengrouse and Amy in St Piran) who will jobshare. Mrs Martin remains the Chair and Tanya Higgins continues as Treasurer. Please, please seek us out if you have any suggestions on how to help raise funds for the school.

Terena & Juli
