Manor Farm Academy is fortunate enough to be supported by parents, staff and friends who provide an invaluable service to the Academy and its local community. Throughout the year, money raised from contributions via special events goes to the P.T.F.A. fund. After consultation with the staff and pupils within the academy, the money goes directly to the children to enhance aspects of their environment, resources or the provision on offer.
March Fundraising and Outdoor Project
March was a very busy month with a games night, the Hindu festival of Holi celebrations and Easter Treat Friday. Thank you for supporting the events and helping to raise money for the new outdoor project. The reading circle (photograph left), with 6 wooden benches and a throne, has been purchased and will be installed during the next few weeks. The children have been involved with choosing a name for the outdoor space and it will be revealed shortly. The reading circle is just the start of this exciting new project and we will keep you updated about what the children choose for the next phase of the project.
Summer Fete Raffle
The Manor Farm Academy PTFA Summer Fete will be held on Saturday 24 June, 11 am – 2 pm. The planning is well underway and a variety of activities and stalls have been booked. This year, the raffle will be the main fundraising activity and therefore, raffle tickets (photograph) will be sold prior to the event. During May, a book of 5 raffle tickets (with instructions) will be sent home in book bags to give families the opportunity to purchase raffle tickets in advance.
Pre-loved Uniform Shop
The new PTFA Pre-loved Uniform Shop opened on Tuesday 2 May and it will allow families to donate, exchange or collect items of pre-loved uniform. We hope families find it useful and enjoy having access to this new service.
